Nadia Comăneci Maximum Card
Is it possible to exceed the maximum? A maximum card is usually a picture postcard bearing a stamp and a postmark relevant to the picture. The design on the stamp usually mirrors that on the postcard and the stamp is usually places the picture-side of the card. In this case, the two pictures on the front of the card (stamp and postcard image) are complimented by the design on the pre-stamped postcard which also depicts Nadia Comăneci
The "1.00" depicted on the stamp reflects the fact that the score clock could not display a perfect score of 10 which Comăneci earned seven times during the games. Instead, a score of 1.00 was displayed.
The caption at the bottom left hand side of the post card notes that Nadia Comăneci won seven marks of ten resulting in three gold medals, a silver and a bronze at the Montreal Olympics in 1976.
