This is one of the RAREST and MOST in demand basketballs out there. MAYBE once a year a brand new in box one comes up for sale, and this is THE ball to get signed by 1990's superstars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, or any other Dream Team member.A real leather Spalding 1990's David J. Stern Basketball 30 years old and BRAND NEW IN BOX. A little backstory on this VERY RARE basketball.. 100% Genuine Split Leather designed for indoor play only. This was THE ball we all wanted for Christmas as kids in the'90's. But it was also THE ball to get signed if getting a Superstar signature at a card show and that's l how I ended up with this ball that is still BRAND NEW IN BOX after 30+ years.
Unfortunately at the last moment Olajuwon canceled and was a no show and my ball went unsigned and into a storage tub. Over the years I got many more balls signed but this ball was long forgotten until recently, when moving I rediscovered it. So here it is: an artifact of the 1990's in ABSOLUTELY PERFECT CONDITION. It has remained untouched for 30 years in a storage tub in my climate controlled warehouse.
The ball is perfect with no loss of air, even the box is in excellent condition with the original label still intact around the ball.
