Thought I would post these here since I don't see a 'track and field' forum. Picked these two 1935 Muratti cards up off the 'Bay - shipped to my mailbox directly from Germany. I had been reading about Jesse Owens and this guy, Ralph Metcalfe, was right there with him in the 1936 Olympics as part of the 4 x 100 meter relay team (Gold Medal) and finishing second in the 100m to Mr. Owens. Sort of the Larry Doby of those Olympics. He won four Olympic medals in two Olympics and served four terms in the US Congress. Quite a life.
Also thought that the photo of him conversing with the German officer was especially poignant given what happens in the '36 Olympics and in Europe in the following years.

Thanks Ryan and Dean. I always liked that card, and I finally found one that I wanted and could afford.

And Ryan, you're right, I've been in a drought. There are some cards that I want, but they either never come up, or else I get outbid when they are available.

PS- Nice Ruth.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
