This installment on my series about the my visit to the Basketball Hall of Fame covers the Olympics. As you may know from previous posts, I'm a HUGE Olympic fan, and at the Hall of Fame I saw genuine Olympic gold medals for the first time in my life! This is a smaller post, but I feel the Olympic medals were special enough that they deserved a spotlight of their own.
here's a card showing her wearing it from 1996 Upper Deck USA.
A basketball signed by all the players from the US Olympic trials at Madison Square Garden in 1936...this is not the current MSG, the one I visited. The trials were held at the third Madison Square Garden, which was in use from 1925-1967.
While this wasn't a particularly large post, the historical significance and personal significance (of seeing an Olympic medal for the first time in my life) is very high.
