Approximately 86 items belonging to NBA legend Kobe Bryant are being auctioned off this month at the Goldin Auctions Spring 2020 Premium Auction happening until May 16.
Some of the items included are a few of Bryant’s game-worn jerseys, signed sneakers and basketballs, a 40-diamond ring from the 2000 NBA title team, and a 2012 Team USA gold medalist ring. These items originally belonged to Bryant’s mother Pam Bryant and also makes up the largest group of the NBA legends’ collectibles set to be auctioned.
“We believe it is the largest collection ever in one place of Kobe Bryant memorabilia,” Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions told ESPN. “There’s something for everyone. We expect the price points in here to go from as low as $500 to potentially over $100,000.”
According to Goldin, these items were collected since December 2019 as the auction has been planned for months. Despite Bryant’s tragic accident, Goldin says that the auction has to push through because this has been a long-term plan for the online auction company and its consigners.
Currently, Bryant’s Adidas signature sneakers that he wore in the 2001 Finals has the highest bid of $28,000 while the lowest is a signed basketball by Bryant worth $125.
Five percent of the proceeds will also be handed over to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports foundation—a sports academy Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant formed last January.
