    1992 American Flag Signed by USA Olympic Basketball "Dream Team" from Team Employee.
    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 Frank Aires, who worked in the support staff for the team in Barcelona, and is consigned to this Platinum Night event by his son. You can find images of his 1992 Olympics staff badges at our online listing, but the Aires family wished to keep them so they will not be included in the lot--instead Mr. Aires' son will supply a signed letter of provenance.

    The 32x60" American flag on offer is autographed by eleven members of the Gold Medal squad: Jordan, Bird, Johnson, Malone, Drexler, Wilkens, Stockton, Ewing, Pippen, Laettner, Mullin. All are applied in black sharpie rating 9/10 or better, and the flag itself likewise survives in perfect condition. The ultimate display piece for the greatest team ever. Letter of provenance from son of Dream Team staff member.Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
