1992 McDonald's Dream Team Cups

USA Basketball Logo
I was doing some cleaning and found a box. It is a box that I have had for 20 years. It contains 12 unused plastic cups. They are plastic cups that McDonalds that gave away as part of a promotion for the 1992 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team. You had to send away to the McDonald's home office to get the complete set (Clyde Drexler and Christian Laettner were not sold in McDonald's). I have seen prices for the set from $5 to $50, but I have had held on to them for 20 years and hopefully 20 more. In honor of the NBA opening the 2012-2013, I decided to take of pictures and share them:

The teammates: John Stockton and Karl Malone
The leaders: Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird
Scottie Pippen and Chris Mullin (Go Warriors)
David Robinson, Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley
Clyde Drexler and Christian Laettner
It is weird that through all the changes over the last 20 years of my life (ups and downs) I still have these cups.
