Caitlyn Jenner is a star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Jenner snatched a legendary decathlon victory in the 1976 Games in Montreal and went on to become an actor and TV personality.    

Today she is best known as the father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner and as a star of the phenomenally successful Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Chris Ivy, director of sports auctions at Heritage, comments: "Perhaps no athlete in history has traveled a more winding road through the various states of celebrity than Jenner.

"From All-American sports star to patriarch of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the world's most famous reality television family to her current status as the pioneer and centerpiece of the evolving global transgender conversation.

"This is the first major piece of Jenner memorabilia to surface and we expect collectors will find it every bit as significant as we think it is."

Other lots in the sale include a 1952 Mickey Mantle rookie card and an 1860 Brooklyn Atlantics card.
