The Olympic Basketball Games for 2008 were outstanding as Team USA won the gold medal in quite a dominating fashion. The dominance was as close to bearing a striking resemblence to the Dream Team of 1992 with Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Isiah Thomas and many others as we have seen in years. The 2012 Games in London will be interesting to see as it will give the United States a chance to win back-to-back gold medals.
For a pictorial memory of the Barcelona Olympics, here is a Michael Jordan basketball card rookie selection.
As we continue on with the memories of past Olympics and look forward to the world championships and the 2012 Olympics, remembering the stars from previous games and collecting their Olympic basketball memorabilia is important. A basketball card from Michael Jordan, be it an autograph or a rookie or just a regular card of him, is a great item. One from Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, David Robinson or any other original Dream Team member is also a collectible that is very famous already and should increase in demand over time. As we look at the current team that just won the Gold Medal, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and many others were the stars of the team. Kobe Bryant rookie cards are also a great idea. All of these would make your Christmas shopping ideas be good ones if you are looking for sports memorabila. The links below have cards of each specific player for sale currently.
