No pictures of events, but at a show in early 1980 I was at the Campy booth where they had a number of Olympic theme posters. I asked if I could have one, and the rep said "I can't just give it to you, I need something in return." So I pulled out a pen I picked up at one of the other booths and asked "How about this?" and was completely surprised when he said "Ok!"
And then there's my 1980 US Olympic team bike:
