Daniel Arsham, Tiffany & Co. Team Up on NBA All-Star Basketball

Joining forces with the multi-disciplinary artist and Cavaliers creative director, a Tiffany Blue basketball may be the hottest collectible to hit All-Star Weekend 2022.

This weekend, the NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland will be played with a Wilson basketball for the first time in years.

Around town, ballers of another ilk will be chasing down the same round object all attendees rotate around — only in a Pantone far removed from orange or brown.Joining forces with Tiffany & Co., artist and Cleveland Cavaliers creative director Daniel Arsham has created a glamorous game ball dipped in the brand’s iconic robin’s egg blue.

Branding by both parties is apparent with customary packaging and a ribbon on top driving home the decadent nature of this hardwood collectible.

The ball is available for purchase for $575 a pop exclusively at the Cavaliers’ All-Star Weekend pop-up shop from Feb. 18 through Feb. 20. That hefty price tag may end up feeling like a steal in due time, however– as outlets like Hypebeast note, Tiffany’s previous Spalding basketball collaboration back in 2019 retailed at $250, but now sells for $2,000 or more.
