Mary Lou Retton, 1991 U.S. Olympic Cards (Summer Olympics Special No. 10)


Name: Mary Lou Retton
Event: Gymnastics
Medal count: 1 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze
Value of card: Its value is not recognized in the Eastern Bloc nations. Or anywhere, really.
Key 1984 stat: Upper legs the size of Greek columns
Little Miss Perfect: Mary Lou Retton was America's sweetheart in 1984 after becoming the first woman from the U.S. to win the Olympic gymnastics all-around title. Of course, everyone has secrets. Here are a handful of things that might make you change your opinion about this "innocent" creature:
  • In 1983, she found $5 on the ground and didn't turn it in to lost and found
  • In middle school, she wrote in some of her textbooks. In ink!
  • She has four children, which means she definitely did you-know-what with a boy several times.
  • She probably had to kiss a communist or two on the cheek during her career.
  • In 1993, she was in an episode of "Baywatch," aka "Smutwatch."
  • Well, just look at that outfit!
