Lot 3085: Official 1992 Barcelona Olympics torch, comprised of aluminum and plastic, measuring 26? in length and 7? at its widest point, designed by Andre Ricard. The metal body is inscribed in gold text, "XXV Olimpiada Barcelona 1992," and bears the emblem of the Games. Several nicks and scuffs to the rubber grip, and slight separation where metal and plastic meet at top of the grip. The massive fifty-day relay included nearly 9,500 torchbearers who carried the Olympic flame by foot and bicycle for a total of 5,940 km throughout Spain. This is an especially large, attractive torch with a decidedly modern design.
