    1992 Olympic Games David Robinson Game Issued & Signed USA Basketball Dream Team Sneakers - Fischer Collection. David Robinson had a very complete NBA career. He was the Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player, scoring champ, rebounding champ, All NBA Team, All NBA Defensive Team, two-time NBA champion, NBA's 50th Anniversary Team, and an Olympic Gold Medalist.

    With the body of a Greek god and the fluidity of a man a foot shorter, the 7-1 center was an integral component of the 1992 Dream Team. Going into the 1992 Olympics, The Admiral was coming off a 23.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, 4.5 blocks season. More importantly, he had a special motivation as he was a member of the 1988 USA Basketball Team which came home with the bronze medal when they were expected to win the gold. This was Robinson's chance at redemption.

    Red/white/blue Nike Air Force size "16" sneakers are each signed on the outer ankles with his NBA number "50" and the bible verses "Prov 23:23" and "Jer 29:11", all in black sharpie. Left shoe inscribed "To David, Best Wishes." Letter of provenance from David A. Fischer, MD. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The David A. Fischer, MD Dream Team I Collection

    Game worn sneakers, Championship ring, team signed basketballs provide inside look at greatest sports team ever assembled

    By the time the USA Basketball Olympic committee came calling, David A. Fischer, MD had already enjoyed a long and distinguished career at the highest levels of American sports, having served as team physician to the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL and Timberwolves of the NBA for over a quarter century. But between the start of the qualifying "Tournament of the Americas" in mid-June 1992 through the final game of the Barcelona Olympics in mid-August, Fischer found himself linked to a team unequalled in the annals of athletic history.

    Now, nearly twenty-four years after legends from Michael Jordan to Magic Johnson to Larry Bird took the top step of the podium to receive their Gold Medals, Dr. Fischer releases the treasures of his service to the bidding audience of our May Catalog Auction

    "We have enjoyed the items and memories," said Fischer. "We will always have the memories and friendships. However, we now think it time to allow other basketball fans and collectors the opportunity to share in these as well."

    Most notable among the contents of the Fischer Collection is a nearly full roster of game worn sneakers, many autographed with grateful messages from the legendary figures the doctor treated. Autograph collectors will be drawn to a pair of team signed basketballs, each so scarce that only team members and staff had access. A variety of Championship awards are likewise on offer, including a Gold Medal for the "Tournament of the Americas" and a ring representing the Gold Medal achievement at Barcelona.
