Nearly 30 years after the fabled “Dream Team” won basketball gold, a Backboard, Rim and Net used during the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 is up for auction in Goldin Auctions Elite Auction which is open for bidding at Goldinauctions.com.
With bids starting at $25,000 and running through Jan. 31, the “Dream Team” basket is one shot at (and in some cases, dunked on by) the likes of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing and the rest of the squad, which recaptured the gold medal for the U.S.
“Dream Team Basketball memorabilia is some of the most sought-after basketball memorabilia,” says CEO and Founder of Goldin Auctions, Ken Goldin. “We anticipate that this Hoop used during the historic Olympic games for the USA to exceed six figures with ease in auction.”
The backboard measures 72 x 42 inches and has a steel frame with a Plexi-glass backboard and was in the “Pabellon Olimpico de Badalona” (Badalona Olympic Pavilion) arena used in the 1992 Summer Olympics.
