During the summer of 1992, a group of 12 American basketball players set off to win an Olympic gold medal in Barcelona, Spain. Only this particular group, competing as the 1992 U.S. Men's Basketball team was dubbed the "Dream Team." They represented the first American Olympic squad to feature active NBA players and proved to be an unstoppable juggernaut. Described by many American journalists as the greatest sports team ever assembled and called "the greatest collection of basketball talent on the planet" by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the unbeatable bunch obliterated every opponent by an average of almost 44 points per game in capturing the gold medal.

Led by Co-captains Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, the team was coached by longtime Detroit Pistons head coach Chuck Daly who was assisted by fellow NBA coaches Lenny Wilkens and P.J. Carlesimo along with Duke's legendary "Coach K," Mike Krzyzewski. Every player on the squad brought impeccable credentials to the table including Magic, Bird, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Clyde Drexler, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, Scottie Pippen and David Robinson. The 12th and final player was the reigning NCAA Player of the Year out of Duke, Christian Laettner.

This lot features an official Molten basketball from the personal collection of team member Christian Laettner that was signed by 10 of the aforementioned players as well as the late Chuck Daly. The two player signatures missing are Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Each of the remaining 10 players and Coach Daly signed it in black marker (8/10 in our book) and the following four players added their U.S. Men's Basketball Team uniform numbers next to their names: Laettner #4; Drexler #10; Malone #11; Stockton #12; and Mullin #13. This is a sought-after, multi-signed basketball as it includes the autographs of nine Naismith Hall of Fame players and Hall of Fame Coach Daly.

Includes LOA from Laettner. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
