A new ticket to report.
I'm still only halfway to finding all of these Mexico City 1968 tickets though!
Two new tickets to add today; both from Rome in 1960.
The annulled ticket is interesting, in my view. The 'annullato' notice is printed, rather than stamped. Why would that be?
Four new tickets to add to the site; two entirely new ones for Mexico City 1968 and two replacements for Atlanta 1996 and London 1948, to replace incomplete versions previously shown.
A new ticket received today and two more on the way!
I don't want to tempt fate on the next two being lost in the post, so I'll comment on those once received.
I am a member of Olympin, perhaps the World's largest Olympic collectors club.
Today I have made an impassioned plea to fellow collectors to join me in trying to create a database of all Olympic tickets and moving towards the organisation of a community that could achieve AICO membership.
My post can be found here:
I recently received an email from a collector who referred to a special ticket she had for Melbourne in 1956. Here it is, a ticket fit for a queen.
There are only two Games for which I have no tickets whatsoever; Athens 1896 and Antwerp 1920.
The likelihood of finding and affording a ticket from the first Games is unlikely, so it is the gap in my collection presented by the 1920 Olympics that irks me more.
If you know of anyone selling either an Antwerp 1920 or Athens 1896 ticket, please let me know.
When exchanging e-mails with a Chinese collector a moment ago, upon Beijing 2008 tickets, I realised that I missed a ticket from that section of the site.
Here it is:
This is an interesting media ticket for the athletics events.
I've added a photo to the site for now, but will ensure that I add a more detailed scan at the beginning of next week.
My aim was to have the website up and running before the opening ceremony of the Rio Games. Here it is!
The site may not be as complete as I would like. A lot more detail is required from the Olympic reports upon the materials and anti-counterfeiting technologies, but all of the tickets are displayed and that is the real purpose of the exercise.
I hope that you enjoy!
