I watched that 1984 race on TV and then went to South Carolina to watch the 1996 Olympic Trials.
The story mentions that Ryun never fulfilled his dream of winning Olympic Gold. Many others have had that dream and not gotten past winning a high school state title. Ryun did okay - he won an Olympic silver medal or as the card says "took only a silver medal".
I don't see the Grolier cards on the tradingcarddb.com. Has anyone found a checklist? How about at least a checklist of track stars?
