This cool program cover comes from the 1985 NCAA Tournament, specifically the first and second round site at the Omni in Atlanta.

The illustrated cover features past NCAA greats, including Akeem Olajuwon, Lew Alcindor, James Worthy and Bill Walton.

Inside there was a feature on the 1984 Olympic squad that won the gold medal the previous summer in Los Angeles. That team, coached by Indiana’s Bobby Knight, featured Michael Jordan, Chris Mullin and Patrick Ewing.

Among the teams that advanced out of Atlanta was Georgia Tech, which eventually fell to Ewing and Georgetown in the Elite Eight.
