Olympic Basketball Expected To Go Home To The United States

Deflated. Lumpy. Old. All words used to describe this BERG basketball.

American Basketball enthusiasts will be watching with interest when it comes up for auction this week in New York. It is, according to the Ottawa Citizen, the only Olympic gold-medal game ball that isn't owned by someone in the United States.
This basketball is from the Canada versus United States 1936 gold-medal basketball game at the Berlin Olympics. The United States won the game that day but it looks like the Canadian who carried this ball home or at least his family will be a winner when this ball is sold for an estimated $150,000.

See you
at the auction!
