Alvin Kraenzlein, 1991 U.S. Olympic Cards (Summer Olympics Special No. 14)


Name: Alvin Kraenzlein
Event: Athletics Track and field
Medal count: 4 gold
Value of card: A spoonful of paste
Key 1900 stat: 41 splinters from hurdles
Closing ceremony: After today, all the medals will have been handed out, all the anthems will have been played, and one thing will remain clear: Michael Phelps sure is one sexy stoner. But some things about the above photo are not so clear. For instance:
  • Why does Alvin Kraenzlein have a woman's haircut?
  • Why is he running the hurdles in the middle of the Rocky Mountains?
  • Is he wearing shorts, pants, or some sort of skin-tight unitard?
  • Why is he wearing leather slippers at a track meet?
  • Is he the only competitor? Where are the other hurdles?
  • How did they have Photoshop in 1900?
