A Lakers jersey worn by Kobe Bryant recently discovered during the team’s 1997 playoffs is up for auction at SCP Auctions’ Spring 2022 premier.
There are many items up for auction, including ticket stubs from Jackie Robinson’s monumental MLB debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, a pair of Mickey Mantle rookie cards, an autographed Babe Ruth baseball card, and more.
However, it’s easy to say that Kobe’s newly uncovered jersey from his freshman year is the headliner of the auction.
The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a piece of NBA and Kobe Bryant history is currently over $1.5 million. The auction ends on Saturday, so if you have a few million lying around, run, don’t walk to SCP Auctions to place your bid now. Once the auction ends, Kobe’s unique jersey is expected to sell for over $3 million.
Black Mamba’s rookie jersey isn’t the only Kobe item available at auction. Another highly sought after item is Kobe’s Skybox Metal Universe PMG 1997 Basketball Card. The PSA Authentic Altered card is autographed and numbered 60 out of only 100 cards worldwide. According to SCP Auctions, this is the first time one of these cards has been available for public purchase. This Kobe item is a bit cheaper than the rookie jersey, which currently sits at over $200,000.
Once again, the auction ends on Saturday June 4, 2022 at midnight and includes over 928 lots. In addition to the items mentioned above, there are also many other Los Angeles sports memorabilia items. Including a game-worn LeBron James jersey, an autographed basketball and game-worn Kobe shoes. If you’re interested in any of the items, you can check them out at www.SCPauctions.com.
