    1992 Olympic Games Scottie Pippen Game Worn & Signed USA Basketball Dream Team Sneakers - Fischer Collection. If John Johnson was the father of the point-forward position, then Scottie Pippen might very well have been the son, by taking what JJ did to a whole new level through his ball handling, playmaking and defense. Pippen's ability to play and defend the one through four spots made him an indispensable part of every team he ever played on.

    As a member of the Chicago Bulls, Pippen earned six NBA championship rings and ten NBA All-Defensive Team selections, creating impossible matchups with his size and ball-handling skills. Going into the 1992 Olympics, Pippen was coming off a 21.0 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7.0 assists season.

    His Olympic kicks on offer here are white Nike Air's with blue/red/gold trim. Size "15" with "8" embroidered on the sides in blue and both signed in black sharpie. On right shoe he also inscribes his Dream Team "#8." Game wear evident. 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.
