Description

A tribute to what could be the most impressive assembly of sports talent to date. After the allowance was made for professional athletes to compete in the Olympics, selections were made for which players would be featured in the games. Ten initial candidates were offered from the NBA to take up positions on the '92 team: Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls, John Stockton and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz, Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers, Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics, Patrick Ewing of the New York Knicks, Chris Mullin of the Golden State Warriors, David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs, and Charles Barkley of the Philadelphia 76ers.

The dream team lived up to its moniker in every imaginable capacity not simply winning, but dominating the entirety of the 1992 Olympic basketball competition. There could not have been a more star-studded selection of players including many of the best players the game has ever seen, at or near their prime in the sport. This plate is a fantastic tribute to this overpowering presence of basketball talent. Each player is rendered in their Olympic uniforms and the plate is rimmed with the player's names and numbers in gold. For a lover of the game of basketball, there can be no more appropriate a collectable.
