A signed Dream Team jersey Michael Jordan wore during the 1992 Olympics is to sell at Grey Flannel Auctions.

That year the US assembled the greatest basketball team of all time to compete in the men's tournament.

The 1992 US Men's Olympics team was one of the greatest lineups ever assembled

For the first time the squad was made up of active NBA stars. Alongside Jordan, players included Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippin and Patrick Ewing.

Jordan has signed the jersey on the front, however autograph authenticator James Spence Autographs (JSA) was unable to reach a decision on its authenticity.

The jersey itself was acquired by NBA reporter Craig Sager, who provides a letter of provenance.

The auction house states: "Grey Flannel stands behind the autograph 100% no matter what any third party autograph authenticator says.

"In an effort to make sure that the winning bidder is completely satisfied with this piece, if he or she so desires, we will have the original autograph professionally removed and cover the cost to have MJ autograph this at his flight school through UDA [Upper Deck Authenticated]."

Bidding on the lot stands at $17,717 ahead of a May 25 close date.

Another Jordan signed '92 Olympics jersey made $38,187 in a 2007 auction. More recently, in 2013, the shoes he wore in his legendary NBA "flu game" made $104,765.

The auction will also feature the trunks Muhammad Ali wore in his 1974 Rumble in the Jungle fight against George Foreman in Zaire.
