Society of Olympic Collectors (SOC) Publications

The Society of Olympic Collectors was established in the Spring of 1984 in the run-up to the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Their house publication, Torch Bearer, debuted in March of that year with 24 pages of Olympic news. Since then, the journal has been published four times per year through 2016. Single issues were published in 2017, 2018 and 2019 after which the society was disbanded. The SOC also published special issues devoted to a single Olympic Games or Olympic theme. All publications have been digitized and are available below.
