Important 1924 photograph of Michigan track star DeHart Hubbard as he sails through the air in the long jump. Dated about the time he won the gold medal, it is reported on the back that he won this event for the United States on a badly sprained ankle and had to be carried off the track! He was the first ever black American to win gold medal at the Olympics in 1924 and as such he is one of the most important and underrated athletes of all time! Images of Hubbard are rare and this is perhaps his finest we have ever handled, issued by the Keystone View Company and stamped on the back with a nice paper caption as well. Condition and quality are both outstanding!
