What’s Buzzing Today: Nothing but breaks as we ready for the weekend.
A priceless stash of autographed items and game-used shoes from the 1992 USA Basketball Dream Team is hitting the auction block via Heritage Auctions, giving deep-pocketed collectors a shot at owning items from the one team that arguably revolutionized basketball on a global scale.
More than 20 lots are up for grabs — all from the collection of Dr. David A. Fischer, who was the physician for the gold-winning squad, which is packed with legends.
“It’s arguably the most significant offering of Dream Team game-used gear ever to surface in the collectible marketplace,” said Chris Ivy, director of Sports Auctions at Heritage. “Due to the brief existence of the team, and the enormous fame and wealth of its members, very little Dream Team material has become available.
“This is a rare opportunity to acquire such significant material from the Dream Team,” he said. “Like the team itself, there will never be another auction like this again.”
