1936 U.S. Olympian’s Gold Medal Headlines SCP Auctions 2015 Fall Premier

Consignments Wanted for SCP Auctions 2015 Fall Premier Auction – Cash Advances AvailableCarl Shy’s 1936 U.S. Olympic Basketball Gold Medal from Berlin Featured in SCP Auctions’ 2015 Fall Premier. The only 1936 U.S. Basketball Gold medal ever offered publicly from Basketball’s inaugural year of Olympic competition.

The 1936 Summer Olympic Games were held in Berlin, Germany, and hosted the very first international basketball competition. This also signified the first time the United States would be fielding a basketball team on the Olympic stage, which was introducing the sport to a worldwide audience. One of the players earning a spot on the U.S. squad was Carl Shy, a standout college player at UCLA in the late ’20s and early ’30s. Standing 6′ 1” and weighing 170 pounds, he became a pivotal playmaking guard on the 1936 U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball Team.

When the Games concluded, the U.S. squad had an undefeated record of 5-0 and outscored its opponents 152 to 69. A 25-10 U.S. triumph over Mexico in the semi-finals set the stage for a gold-medal encounter between basketball inventor James Naismith’s native Canada and his adopted United States. When the final buzzer sounded, the U.S. had outscored Canada, 19-8, in a torrential downpour as the basketball competition was actually played outdoors. SCP Auctions is proud to present Shy’s gold medal from the ’36 Games along with other coveted pieces from his basketball career and international travels in its 2015 Fall Premier online auction, which starts Wednesday, November 18.
