Olympic Torches

Just two torches remain between Ripley’s and a complete collection of Olympic torches: one from the Games in Helsinki, Finland, and another from the Games in Innsbruck, Austria. Why the trouble getting these last two? The Helsinki Games only have 22 torch models left, with very few in private hands. As for Innsbruck, there are only one or two original torches!
