Adam,

I think Charlie Brown is fourth from left. He was one of the shortest members of the team. I don't think this is the final team as Bob Carmody, the only Caucasian member of the 1964 team was only 5' 2" and does not appear to be in this photo. He was one of four medal winners on the team (Carmody, Brown, Ronnie Harris, Joe Frazier). He was also one of 3 U.S. Olympians killed in the Viet Nam War and one of two medalists. Sam Mosberg, the man who signed the card, won a gold medal in boxing at the 1920 Olympics with one of the quickest knockouts in Olympic boxing history. I believe Ray Mercer holds the record for the quickest KO in an Olympic gold medal bout. He would later run the family furniture business in New York and also became a real estate broker. He also coached the U.S. team during the 1953 Maccabiah Games. Uncommon signature also.
