Splurge on this 1998-99 Duke team-signed basketball featuring (13) Blue Devil autographs. The perennially dominant Blue Devils rang up a perfect 16-0 conference record to capture the ACC Championship before finishing up #2 when they were bedeviled by Connecticut in the final game of the 1999 NCAA tournament. This Wilson Jet model basketball presents in unused condition and features the endorsements of (2) coaches and (11) players including (6) future NBA players: Avery, Battier, Brand, Carrawell, Langdon & Maggette, former NBA player and assistant coach Dawkins and a tremendously bold Coach K single-signed panel. All of the autographs are signed in black marker and appear on three adjoining white panels. Full photo LOA from JSA.
