This is Larry Bird's game worn and twice-signed jersey from the greatest team in basketball history — the Dream Team. Larry Bird signed this Team USA #7 jersey using a black fiber-tip pen, making this one of the finest Bird jerseys to ever come up for auction. Considering the fame and prestige of the 1992 Dream Team, this is arguably one of the most important jerseys of Bird’s career.

The 1992 US Olympics Men’s Basketball team is both the most famous and most talented team of all time. In 1992, the Olympics lifted their restrictions on professional athletes and it was the first time ever that pros across the world would be representing their country on the world’s biggest stage. This, of course, coincided with one of the most important eras in NBA history as it was a transitional period between Larry Bird’s Celtics battling Magic Johnson’s Showtime Lakers to a young Michael Jordan’s takeover of the league. The 80’s and 90’s saw basketball explode in popularity, and with the league’s biggest star the Dream Team made basketball a global phenomenon.

Bird is undoubtedly one of the brightest stars to ever play the game, and in his prolific Hall of Fame career he won 3 NBA Championships, 3 MVPS, was named an All-Star 12 Times, and — of course — won an Olympic Gold Medal. Very Good condition. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Boston Celtics equipment Manager Wayne Lebeaux, Mears A5 Letter of Authenticity, a James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity, and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
