1989 Pistons Basketball

Pistons Basketball

In 1989 my grandma signed me up to win this contest to meet the Detroit Pistons and get a basketball (used that day) signed by the entire team. It was a great day, Joe Dumars was taller than me even when he was kneeling and Isaiah Thomas was phenomenal and super friendly.

But now, as much as I love the ball, I need to sell it. Times are tough and I have accepted a teaching position overseas where I will be teaching English as a Foreign Language to students in underprivileged areas of the world. Needless to say it's costing me a few thousand to get there, and I'm hoping to find a wonderful, generous Detroit Pistons fan to buy the ball and help finance my way to a new future overseas.

Any leads or help anyone could give me would be truly appreciated!
