Olympics

1972 Winter Olympics...Eunice Alter JONAL ArtCovers...Although not a comic related cover, I would like to share a hand-painted cover from my collection...the 1972 Winter Olympics were held in Sapporo, Japan, the medallion commemorates the 1972 Munich Summer Olympics and the cachet features a rendering of a Greek athlete from the original Greek Olympiad...

JONAL ArtCovers were created by artist Eunice Alter and Jack Stuckart, editor of the newsletter SPAN, in the early 1970s. JONAL ArtCovers is an exceptional example of hand-painted PNC (philatelic and numismatic) first day cover. Each cover is researched and designed so that the coin, stamp and illustration are inter-related and celebrate an important event or person.

Mrs. Alter has had her covers exhibited at the Cardinal Spellman Philatelic Library, and her tribute to Arthur Fiedler is part of the permanent Arthur Fiedler Exhibit at the Boston Statehood Library...


After watching the Flash TV series, I had the What if? thought of a race between Flash, Quicksilver and Golden Age Flash.  I decided to adapt that idea to the above Olympics first day cover from 2004...
