Lot 974: Finnish long-distance runner who won ten Olympic medals—including seven gold—and held the world record for the mile, 4 minutes 10.4 seconds, from 1923 to 1931. Vintage semi-glossy 2.5 x 4.25 photo of Nurmi in full stride, signed in fountain pen. In fine condition, with adhesive remnants to corners and a tiny tear to top edge. A truly desirable example, as signed images of the Flying Finn are exceedingly rare.
