USA Basketball, Uncanny Brands Hit the Court for Licensing Partnership

1992 USA Basketball team legends are becoming collectible plush figures.

Pop culture products brand Uncanny Brands has signed a licensing agreement with the NBA in partnership with USA Basketball to produce new plush toys and signed, limited-edition artwork. The 1992 USA Basketball team, which won the Gold Medal in Barcelona, is considered one of the greatest sports teams in history. Seven new Bleacher Creatures inspired by that team are available now and include NBA Hall of Famers:

  • Scottie Pippen;
  • John Stockton;
  • Karl Malone;
  • David Robinson;
  • Patrick Ewing;
  • Larry Bird; and
  • Magic Johnson.

The collectible plush figures are 10” tall and stand on their own, making them work for both play and display.

Phenom Gallery, Uncanny Brands’ collectible art division, is also creating limited-edition USA Basketball silkscreened prints. The first, available now, is by artist M. Fitz and features Scottie Pippen. Additional prints featuring more Team USA Basketball legends will follow later this year.

The deal adds to recent Uncanny Brands partnerships which include an agreement with Marvel to create a Popcorn Maker inspired by Captain America.
