Default Olympic and miscellaneous new purchases

I'll start this off with a card in today's mail, the RC of the great volleyball player Karch Kiraly. PS if anyone pays attention to such things, it appears to me that LOTS of the slabbed SI for Kids cards now seem to have the perforations trimmed. I don't like that at all. These cards should look relatively rough.

Diana Nyad, one of the most remarkable athletes ever, who doesn't get anywhere near her due. A testament to the human spirit. Her RC goes all the way back to Sportscasters.

Never saw this before, a 1968 Peggy Fleming card that is the same year as her impossible Mira Tuttosport rookie card, not the best looking card but still.

Nice card. I have the set. Jean Claude-Killy is the only other recognizable name to me in it. There's several Hockey cards in it, but looking at the rosters of the 68 Olympics, probably nobody worth going through the trouble to identify, unless you're into the Pre-Tretiak era Soviet stars.

I am still searching for a Brian Boitano, I am aware of only one card, from a 1994 Olympic set, but have never found it.

I'm shocked he doesn't have a QOS or mainstream Panini card. His career fit right in the sweet spot for those issues.

Very cool thread. I can't scan to this site but some of my favorite Olympic cards are on very thin paper set in Spanish of Emil Zatopeck, Abebe Bikila, Al Oerter and Larysa Latynina.

He has cards in the 2014 and 2018 Olympians and Paralympians sets. I believe all of them are autographed.

Thank you. I was hoping to find a career card and I think there the only choice is 1994 Panini Lillehamer? But I'll look at those others.

Default 1980 Team USA Hockey Wanted

I've been searching for this set or individual cards (Eruzione, Craig, Christiansen, and Silk) for years. Does anyone own them or know where I might find them? Please shoot me a note if you can help. Thanks.

She finally succeeded. Quite a feat.

1926 Stanley Cup Finals Program. The last year a non NHL team competed for the Cup. Stanley Cup Finals programs from the 1920's and earlier are very scarce.

Helen Stephens pictured there was no slouch herself, I think she won two golds and was a world record holder.

Here's a 1968 German Summer Olympic set I've dug up. Includes several cards of US Gold Medalists I've pictured below, along with two other notables. Distance runner, Kip Keino and gymnast, Vera Caslavska.

For those not familiar with Caslavska, who dominated women's gymnastics during the 1960's, I'd suggest reading up on her. She was also an open protester during the '68 Olympic Games, and she ended up paying a steep price for it.
