Montana's Olympic Uphill Bobsled Team:
This humorous postcard was produced by Paul Stanton, Duckboy Cards, Montana. Needless to say this did not become an Olympic sport. An unusual Olympic record is held by the 1952 German team that of being the heaviest team. They weighed in at 1041 pounds. A rule was passed afterwards limiting teams (whether uphill or downhill) to 880 pounds.
