    Description

    1928 OLYMPICS PROGRAM. "We came here to win, and win decisively," exclaimed the director of the American Olympic Committee -- Douglas MacArthur. It’s kinda tough keepin’ allies when you kick in the door like that. Well, the U.S. did pretty well in that 1928 Olympiad. We won a lot of medals, but the legacy of those games was the introduction of Johnny Weissmuller, who swam his way to two Golds, and then into the fabricated swamps of Hollywood. The 1928 Olympics were hosted by the Netherlands, and though relics of other early 20th Century Olympiads seem adequately available, there’s a mysterious scarcity of mementos from Amsterdam. This 45-page program, with its delightful art deco cover, appears unhandled. A few of its pages (but not the covers) have innocent border creases at the top (sustained when printed), and overall, it is solidly EX/MT.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
