#15: 1952 USA Olympian Uniform Patch Reel Case
ORIGINAL 1952 USA Olympian Uniform Patch on this VERY Special One-of-a-Kind Reel Cover
This patch was acquired by a collector during the ’84 Olympics while he was volunteering in support of the Los Angeles games. It is an ORIGINAL UNIFORM PATCH for an American Olympian – worn (last) during the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, Finland. This same patch was produced for several games – and could have been worn in earlier games as uniforms were often re-used during this period. It is noteworthy that a patch of this type and production methods was worn by Jesse Owens when he won the Gold in Berlin in 1938.
