Considered one of the greatest middle distance runners of all time, Lord Sebastian Coe is the only man in modern times to have captured Gold in the Olympic 1500m twice (Moscow 1980 and LA 1984). His victory in 1980, a comeback effort after losing the 800m to fellow teammate and rival Steve Ovett and a race and for which he was an overwhelming favourite, was testament to his courage and mental strength. In a Limited Edition Series of only 500, Seb has personally autographed this 8x10 in. gold medal victory celebration photograph from the 1984 Olympic Games held in Los Angeles. The photo is beautifully presented in an acid free double matted mount with descriptive metallic plate that proudly displays the Team GB Lionhead logo. Exclusive Memorabilia is proud to be an approved distributor of licensed Team GB products.
All our signed memorabilia is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by a company director. It features a numbered hologram that matches an identical hologram affixed to your product, and details of when and where the product was signed. Our company number and details are included on the certificate.
Each certificate includes, where possible and in the vast majority of cases, a photo of the sportspeople or celebrity signing one of the product line at the relevant signing session. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every product being signed, but showing that the sportsperson or celebrity was present and signing items is, we believe, the best way to demonstrate the legitimacy of your products.
Numbered security hologram
Your certificate will come with a numbered security hologram, which will correspond to a matching, identically numbered hologram on your product. This ensures that the certificate can only be used to authenticate the item for which there is a corresponding number. If anyone attempts to remove either hologram it will destruct, so it is impossible to transfer the holograms to other items.
