    1992 Dream Team I Partially Team-Signed Molten Game Basketball with Possible Use Attribution - Jordan, Magic & Bird on Same Panel. Affectionately known as the Dream Team, the NBA's best of the early 1990's ran roughshod against the rest of the world in 1992. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson were teammates and victorious by an average of 43.8 points a game. According to our consignor this Molten basketball was used during the Olympic series. The ball originates from the estate of 2017 Tennessee Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame scribe George Leonard, who wrote for the Nashville Banner.

    "Official of the Barcelona '92 Olympic Games" and "Approved by FIBA 1992" is raised in gold lettering on the leather surface. We did find photos on Getty Images (103159813 Gold Medal Game) showing the Dream Team playing with a ball which matches this style. This was offered as game used from Leonard's estate although we have no written documentation to back such a claim. The ball is signed by an array of players from the historic team. Signed by each in NM-MT black sharpie, the following autographs are present: Michael Jordan (UDA hologram), Christian Laettner, Patrick Ewing, Clyde Drexler, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Bird, Magic and Jordan all signed the same side panel - a true rarity. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Full LOA from SGC Authentic (autograph).
