Munich 72 Pins

Posted by Scott

Some Otl Aicher 1972 Munich Olympics pins. There is nothing better than green with that deep aqua-marine (top pin in particular). If I had these I would wear a different one every day on a short sleeved white button up shirt with horn rim glasses. Speaking of the ’72 Olympics, Spitz is still the champ in my book based on style alone.

Dude, he has a moustache, no contest. He probably just walked up to the judges and said give me the medal, and they did.

That first pic of him looks somewhat similar to you. Something you trying to tell us?
