    1996 Hakeem Olajuwon Game Worn, Signed Dream Team II Jersey and Shorts. Despite the extreme popularity that the 1992 United States Olympic basketball team earned worldwide, the 1996 squad was just a successful, and may very well have been just as talented. With an average margin victory of 31.8 points per game, the American squad captured another gold medal in 1996, while doing it in host city Atlanta. Presented here is a complete uniform that center Hakeem Olajuwon wore during the '96 games, and it was originally obtained by a director at DDB Needam Promotions during business dealings with regards to Ruffles and Frito-Lay. Included is The Dream's white mesh shirt that features sewn-on numerals on the front and back, while his name is screened directly on the fabric. Signed on the back numeral in Mint ink, it has a "Champion [size] 48" tag in the tail and the all-important "three inch extra length" tag in the interior. Also included are his shorts, which are also signed in bold black sharpie. In addition, the proper "Champion [size] 38" tag in the waist, as is a "two inch extra rise" and "two inch extra inseam" tag. Light wear is exhibited throughout the patriotic set from an esteemed member of the NBA's Top 50 of all time. Letter of provenance from director at DDB Needham Promotions. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
