AICO WEB OLYMPIC SHOW 2021
A Virtual international exhibition of Olympic collections is now online ( https://aicolympic.org/aiwos2021/
). There are 60 exhibitors in the Philately class, 19 in the Memorabilia class and 11 youngsters who have registered. In the honorary class, another 8 exhibitors, who were invited, will present their collections.
The virtual show will be on line until October 3.
I am showing my 1932 Lake Placid Olympic Winter Games exhibit in 8 frames ( https://aicolympic.org/aiwos/021-19...lake-placid/
) . It's the first time I have exhibited it in about 15 years.
AICO is the French acronym for Association Internationale des Collectionneurs Olympiques and is a group of sports groups (18) recognized by the International Olympic Committee. There are only two such groups in the Western Hemisphere: Sports Philatelists International and the Olympin Collectors Club, both headquartered in the US. The exhibitors have to be a member of at least one of the sports groups.
