It’s been two years since the world lost basketball legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi in a helicopter crash. Since their death, the merchandise related to the two has always been in high demand.
Not too long ago, a rare card related to Kobe was sold for $2 million at an auction. Now, the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation seem to have made a new record by having hoodie celebrating the two sold out in under 24 minutes.
The hoodie was released this week and went out quickly. Kobe’s wife Vanessa says Champion donated the hoodies to support the launch of the Mamba & Mambacita Sports store. 100% of the proceeds are going to Foundation’s mission. A mission aims to create equal opportunity for underserved boys and girls in athletics.
The MMSF Reverse Weave Pullover hoodie is black in color and features the foundation logo on the front in white. The hood and sleeve feature numbers 2, 8, and 24 honoring each jersey number Kobe and Gigi wore when they hit the hardwood.
“Special thanks to donating this merchandise to our foundation,”
“Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. Our hoodie sold out in less than 24 minutes 🖤🤍.”Vaness wrote in her Instagram post
Thursday — 02/24 — was a day of major significance for the Bryant family because it features Gigi and Kobe’s jersey numbers during their basketball career.
