German card from the 1932 Olympics. These cards were issued as a promotion.  The buyer of the cards would adhere them to the picture in the 1932 Olympic book...much like stamp collecting today.  This photo is of the 80m hurdle final that Babe wins Gold, her second in the 1932 Olympics.  Text is in German.  Size: 3 3/8" x 4 15/16".  Sammelwerk ("collection") number 6, Bild (number) 62, Gruppe (group) 19.  Minor 'wrinkle' on the lower left corner.
