Tommie Smith Beautifully Autographed July 15, 1968 “Newsweek” with His Cover Photo.

Lot 645. Tommie Smith Beautifully Autographed July 15, 1968 “Newsweek” with His Cover Photo. Three months and a day later, Smith won the 200-meter dash in a record time of 29.83 seconds at the Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Teammate John Carlos captured the Bronze Medal. After the race, to protest racism and other mistreatment of African Americans in the U.S., the two men each raised a black-gloved fist, the Black Power salute, during their medal presentation ceremony. A nine-page article in the “Newsweek” by Smith, titled “The Angry Black Athlete,” presages the protest and provides context for it. The magazine is complete and ex with a mailing label. Smith’s autograph is gem mint 10. He added “Mexico City 1968” below. Above and to the right, away from the signature and against a somewhat dark background, he wrote “2000 M 29.83 WR” (World Record). A quality collectible. Winning Bid $83.
