    Description

    1992 USA Basketball Dream Team Signed Basketball. The most important basketball team of all time was the brainchild of 2006 Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Dave Gavitt, veteran collegiate coach who innovated the concept of a professional "Dream Team" during his five-year term (1988-92) as president of the U.S. Olympic Committee. Mr. Gavitt himself presented this ball to a corporate sponsor of the team along with an included cover letter.

    The cast of characters will be familiar to any and all who consider themselves students of hardcourt history, but we will list them nonetheless: Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Chris Mullin, Christian Laettner and coaches Chuck Daly, Mike Krzyzewski, P.J. Carlesimo and Lenny Wilkens. Each and every black sharpie signature rates 9/10 or better. The ball bears the logo of the "Basketball Tournament of the Americas," an Olympics qualifier played in Portland, Oregon just a few weeks before the start of the Summer Games. An included lucite table tent appears to suggest that the signing happened at a June 26th banquet on the eve of the start of the FIBA tourney. One of the finest and most ironclad Dream Team balls in the hobby. Cover letter from Dave Gavitt. Full LOA from Beckett.

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