The remaining 200 pcs were sold limited at a Swatch The Club Germany event on the 11th.  Former olympic champion Carl Lewis was present at the Swatch Store Munich to sign the special.  About 50 club members participated at the event and queued up early for the signing:

At 11am, Carl arrived and started to sign autographs:

Carl only gave one autograph at a time, so I had to queue up about 10 times to get everything signed that I wanted (I now have an USA Olympic Team gold NOC Atlanta 1996 [GZ150JA] signed by Carl :-)

After the signing, we walked to the exhibition in the gallery near the Hofbräuhaus (only 5 mins walking).

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition on 11-APR, a VIP party took place on the evening before on the 10th. Many famous German athletes, actors, and other VIPs were invited to the party and signed the following board:
