You can now own a small piece of the greatest basketball team ever assembled – if you have an inordinate amount of money to blow, of course.

One of Magic John’s jerseys from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics is up for auction through this weekend. Those games were the first to allow NBA players to get in on the action.

According to SCP, where the jersey is posted, the artifact is expected to go for at least $150,000.The jersey is the one he wore in the quarterfinals against Puerto Rico, though the site says he likely wore in multiple times throughout the competition.

The 1992 “Dream Team” included Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Larry Bird, Karl Malone, Chris Mullen, John Stockton, Christian Laettner, Clyde Drexler, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson and Charles Barkley. They were led by head coach Chuck Daly and assistants head coach Lenny Wilkens, P. J. Carlesimo and Mike Krzyzewski.

The Americans won five of their eight games by more than 40 points, and their closest game was a 117-85 win over Croatia for the gold medal. They were a true super team, way before super teams were cool.
