Uruguay dominated their competition during the 1924 Paris Summer Olympics, winning all five of their matches in powerful displays of organized team soccer. La Celeste came to the tournament as the underdog, traveling from South America to Europe in third-class accommodations as relative unknowns. With a 3-0 defeat of Switzerland in the tournament final, Uruguay left Europe having made an indelible mark in soccer history. After winning the tournament final at Stade Olympique, Uruguay embarked on the first-ever Olympic lap of honor around the stadium, creating an Olympic tradition that lasts to this day. Offered in this lot is an offset printing tin plate of La Celeste waving to fans at the 1924 Olympics. This tin plate printing originates from the archives of Mundo Uruguayo magazine and measures 6.25 x 4.25 inches. It is in good condition. This item comes with a LOA confirming it is part of the Rony Almeida Soccer Collection.
