It would be a shame if this collection ended up with someone who didn't care.

I presume the collection belonged to Dore Schwab, whose obituary is below:

Dore was well before my time with the team but I'll pass this along to Nancy Ridout (if she doesn't see it on her own) who can pass it along to those who knew him.

I wonder how the heck these things got on ebay to begin with... They would seem to have primarily sentimental value rather than actual cash value...

Some people will buy anything...even technical swimsuits.

Jon, you have an eagle eye! I'd be way more likely to be viewing this forum than awards on eBay. Dore was a treasured member of TAM. I, too, wonder who's trying to make money off these swimming awards. Sentimental value? Yes. Other than that, I wouldn't think so.

I appreciate your beinging this to our attention. If I find anything out, I'll post an update.
