Description

These are rare Lake Placid Winter Olympics Lighting Team Collectibles from 1980. They were issued to employees of Mix International Lighting Incorporated, the Kentucky company that lit many of the Olympic venues in and around Lake Placid.
This highly unusual Olympic set includes a white knit cap with the "OFFICIAL WINTER OLYMPIC LIGHTING TEAM LAKE PLACID 1980" Patch sewn on, a second unused patch and a faux leather bound address and telephone book with MIX INTERNATIONAL LIGHTING INCORPORATED, LIGHTING THE WINTER OLYMPICS LAKE PLACID 1980, A PHONE NUMBER and ADDRESS AND TELEPHONE" printed on the front.
The patches measure 2 3/4 inches by 3 3/4'' and boast the official Lake Placid Olympic logo in full color. The address book measures 6 inches by 4 1/2 inches.
The Made in the USA, acrylic hat has been worn but is in fair condition with some small staining on the front of the hat but not on the patch. The address book is in unused condition but the gold embossing is slightly worn around the edges (see picture).

Lake Placid 1980 Olympic Winter Games were held in Lake Placid, N.Y. on Feb. 13–24, 1980. The Lake Placid Games were the 13th occurrence of the Winter Olympic Games and the second time the small upstate New Yorktown had hosted the Winter Olympics..
Lake Placid provided stunning victories for the Americans. The U.S. ice hockey team defeated the powerful Soviets, the dominant team in international hockey over the previous decade and Olympic champions since 1964. Almost overshadowed by the success of the hockey team was Eric Heiden’s record-breaking performance as he swept the speed skating events, becoming the first athlete to win five individual gold medals at a single Olympic Games.

Please contact me with any questions as these come directly from a family member's private collection from their time working at the 1980's Olympics in Lake Placid.
