SOC’s Torch Bearer Now Live!
The Society of Olympic Collectors (SOC) has very generously donated the entire run of their journal, Torch Bearer, to the AICO website where it is now available to the general public.
In 2018, SOC, which had been a charter member of AICO, unfortunately found it necessary to dissolve the society. It was decided that a portion of their remaining assets would be used to digitize their journal and the many special Olympic supplements that had been published by the society. In all, there are over 150 issues covering virtually every Olympic Games.
AICO would like to thank SOC for their generous gift which will benefit the Olympic collecting community for many years come!
