"Tommie Smith is selling the gold medal he won during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, where his black-gloved salute on the podium shocked the sports world.

The former San Jose State University runner put his gold medal for the 200-meter race and running shoes up for auction at New York-based M.I.T. Memorabilia. Bidding starts at $250,000; the sale is scheduled to close Nov. 4. The 66-year-old Smith, who lives in Georgia, declined to comment Tuesday to the San Jose Mercury News."

Here you can bid on an Olympic silver medal (proceeds go to charity). With 3 days to go, the price is just PLN 45,500 (roughly USD 16 thousand).
