New Goldin Auction Features Iconic Collection of Memorabilia From Legendary Olympic Diver Greg Louganis

Goldin announces its August Monthly Sports Auction featuring a remarkable assortment of memorabilia from legendary American Olympic diver and gold medalist Greg Louganis.   The collection was carefully curated and includes two of Louganis’ signature Speedo styles including this 1988 red, white and blue USA team speedo and 1984 Los Angeles Olympics speedo worn by the four-time Olympian.

The auction also includes a signed screenplay draft for his autobiography, titled “Breaking the Surface,” chronicling his back-to-back double gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games while wrestling with self-doubt and lack of confidence as he concealed his sexual orientation as a gay athlete.

Some of the marquee items in the collection from sports cards and Olympics-worn speedos to memorabilia include:

“These incredible pieces are truly representative of Louganis’ life as an Olympic athlete. They show triumph and dedication to a sport that completely encapsulated a lifetime,” said Goldin Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin. “The auction offers a chance to showcase not only the sport and Louganis’ sportsmanship but how he has become a hero and inspiration for so many.”

The August Sports Monthly Auction closes August 20. Goldin, which has built a reputation as the trusted leader in trading cards, collectibles and memorabilia, is also actively accepting consignments for future auctions. To inquire about consigning items, email sell@goldin.co.
