Jesse Owens Signed & Inscribed Index Card PSA Slabbed & Graded 

OWENS, JESSE. Signature, “Jesse Owens”, on a 4.75” x 2.75” Yellow Index card, slabbed to an overall size of 7.25” x 4.25”, n.d. PSA/DNA Certified EX-MT 6.

Jesse Owens (1913-1980) was a record-breaking and record-setting track and field athlete. At the 1936 Olympic Games hosted in Nazi-controlled Berlin, Owens won four gold medals at sprints, relay, and long jump, thus exploding the Aryan superiority myth. Segregation and racism nevertheless colored the Olympian's return to the United States. Despite his sensational symbolic victories, Owens was never invited to the FDR White House, one of many reasons why he supported the Republican presidential candidate Alf Langdon in 1936.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
