Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are two of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game. Naturally, anything connected with their history on the court is going to catch a decent price, and this is no exception.
Two game-used jerseys of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have just been put up for auction. They’re so one-of-a-kind that they’re projected to fetch more than $100,000 each.
The white Bryant one is extremely uncommon; it’s a “Noche Latina” Lakers uniform that the Mamba wore against the Bulls in 2013. For the Latin-themed night, the jersey had “Los Lakers” sewn on the front, while Bryant wrote his name in white within the 2 on the back.
The jersey also has some noteworthy patches. “JB” on the front to honor Jerry Buss and a “Noche Latina” insignia on the breast. On the front tail is also a “Noche Latina Latin Nights” insignia.
Meanwhile, James’ jersey does not have a signature. What makes it special is that it is a uniform he wore multiple times during his first season as a Laker.
The auctioneers, Goldin, tell TMZ that the 37-year-old really wore the uni for six games in the 2018-19 season. Recording three triple-doubles and a 36-point game while wearing it.
Both items are currently up for auction. According to TMZ, the Bryant jersey might get up to $125,000, while James’ could fetch up to $150,000. The auctions are scheduled to conclude next month. So, if you’re a huge LeBron or Bryant fan, you might want to get in on the bidding.
