Kobe Bryant Jersey
Kobe Bryant's Kobe Bryant game-worn Lakers jersey from rookie season fetches a record-breaking $2.73 million.
Kobe Bryant's game-worn jersey from his time as a Los Angeles legend sold at an auction for a hefty price.
SCP Auctions revealed that a game-worn jersey from Bryant's rookie season sold for $2.73 million.
Bryant's jersey from rookie season was worn during two separate wins at the Forum in 1997.
Bryant wore the jersey in regular season victories versus the Utah Jazz on April 13, 1997, and then against the Sacramento Kings on April 17, 1997.
SCP Auctions to the Associated Press commented that the anonymous parties involved in the auction enjoyed the deal.
However, the person who sold the jersey has the item in their possession for the past 25 years.
An independent authenticator verified that the jersey was the one that Bryant had worn during the 1996-97 season, and it was photo-matched with the uniform to make sure that this was the case.
Kobe Bryant was an legendary player. A shooting guard, he spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA.
In 2021, one of Kobe Bryant's rookie jerseys sold for $3.69 million. That one was also signed, and with that price it remains the highest price ever paid for a basketball jersey.
