In addition to the many medals and documents in this collection are dozens of fascinating original photographs depicting Luz Long doing what he did best: competing in either the long jump or the triple jump. They come directly from the Long family and several were submitted to PSA/DNA for Type I authentication. Offered here is a pair from the 1937 German National Championships held in Berlin on July 24, 1937. The German superstar won the long jump with a mark of 7.70 meters. It was his seoond straight major championship victory in as many weeks, coming a season after his silver medal at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and the fourth of six German national titles Luz would win in the long jump from 1933 to 1939.

Reverse stampings from “Das Sportbild von Schirner” credit both photos to Max Schirner, a prominent German photographer who covered the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The action shot of Luz about to land a jump in the pit has editorial notes on the reverse with the date, location and Luz’s winning long jump mark. The other portrait shot has the original press caption attached to the back. The photos each measure 5” by 7” (13 x 18 cm) and come encapsulated in PSA/DNA Type I holders with separate letters from PSA/DNA noting the pedigree from the Luz Long Collection.
