Michael Jordan and Larry Bird met for the first time on the court in 1984. Bird had already established himself as a bona fide NBA superstar when Jordan entered the league out of North Carolina. Over the course of the next eight seasons, the two would have many memorable matchups, including the famous 63-point Jordan playoff game. Although the pair teamed up nearly every season for the Eastern Conference at the All-Star Game, they truly joined forces in 1992 when the Dream Team formed to lead Team USA to an Olympic gold medal in the Barcelona Games. Manufactured by Molten, this gold basketball is perfect for displaying among the very best sports memorabilia. Jordan and Bird have autographed this limited edition (100) Molten Gold Trophy basketball in black paint pen. Their signatures are deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five-Step Process.
