    With letter of provenance from Laettner himself!

    1992 Barcelona Olympics USA Basketball "Dream Team" Signed Basketball from Christian Laettner.
    Forget the 1927 Yankees and the 1972 Dolphins. The greatest American sports team ever assembled was the one which claimed Olympic Gold on the basketball courts of Barcelona in 1992, a staggering array of ultra-legends that steamrolled the rest of the world after the rules against Olympic professionalism were overturned. In the eight games required to reach the top of the podium, the narrowest margin of victory came in the Gold Medal contest against Croatia, a 117-85 result.

    This memento of that elite squad originally belonged to Christian Laettner, hero of the Duke University back-to-back NCAA Championships of 1991 and 1992 and a controversial selection over Shaquille O'Neal for the center role. Laettner remains the only member of the Dream Team lacking Hall of Fame enshrinement.
    The "Molten" brand ball is identified in gold lettering as the "Official [ball] of the Barcelona '92 Olympic Games" and is autographed by a full roster of twelve players and five staff members:

    Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, John Stockton, Clyde Drexler, Scottie Pippen, Karl Malone, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Chris Mullin, Patrick Ewing, Christian Laettner, Chuck Daly, Lenny Wilkens, Mike Krzyewski, P.J. Carlesimo and team doctor David Fischer.

    Silver sharpie signatures average a bold 9/10 without any of the smudging common to that writing utensil, and the ball remains fully inflated. A virtually unimprovable example of one of the most important team signed balls of the "modern era." Letter of provenance from Christian Laettner. Full LOA from PSA/DNA for the Ball. Full LOA from SGC Authentic for the Ball. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA for the Letter of Provenance. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic for the Letter of Provenance.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
