STEVE PREFONTAINE: A HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK

A rare 1969 edition of the Marshfield High School yearbook from Coos Bay, Oregon, picturing Steve Prefontaine in his senior portrait on page 137, with Prefontaine also illustrated on pages 72, 85, and on page 86 as part of the Varsity track team.
12 1/4 x 9 1/4 in.

Footnotes

Pre was already a running legend by his Senior year in high school, appearing as a "Face in the Crowd" in Sports Illustrated earlier that year for breaking the high school 2-mile record. At some point in the past, a previous owner of the book placed a small "x" in ballpoint ink next to Pre's portrait. An early collectible of one of America's most legendary athletes.
