Kobe Bryant’s 2000 NBA Championship Jacket Up For Auction

The late Kobe Bryant’s 2000 NBA championship jacket with the Los Angeles Lakers will hit the auction market early next month.

And guess how much it’s going to be auctioned for? Your guess is as good as mine! Whatever price it’s been auctioned for, I think it would be worth it.

Via The Daily Mail:

A leather jacket made for Kobe Bryant commemorating his Los Angeles Lakers’ 2000 championship is set to be auctioned off early next month.

The jacket is a part of Julien’s Auction’s Icons & Idols: Sports collection, for which the auction will be held December 6 at the company’s Beverly Hills headquarters and online.

The limited edition jacket is signed by designer Jeff Hamilton and has patches that read, Los Angeles Lakers and Champions 2000, across the front.

The coat also has patches of the team’s logo, banners representing the team’s previous championship seasons (72, 80, 82, 85, 87, 88) and the logo of the 2000 NBA Finals.

The rear side of the garment reads 2000 champions and features the team logo, with six silver-toned star studs to represent the previous championship seasons, according to Julien’s.

Bryant and the Lakers bested the Indiana Pacers by a 4-2 margin in the NBA Finals.

His teammates on the 2000 squad included Shaquille O’Neal, Rick Fox, Derek Fisher, Glen Rice and Tyronn Lue.

On January 26, 2020, Kobe Bryant, 41, and daughter Gigi, 13, tragically died with seven others in a January 26, 2020 helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, along with pilot Ara Zobayan, 50, Alyssa Altobelli, 14, Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, and Christina Mauser, 38.

May their souls continue to rest with the Lord.

The jacket will probably cost you a pretty penny, so if you are going to bid, make sure you have big dollars. It is an iconic piece for sure. I might even put a bid in myself.

We will see if I can get it for $100.
