According to TMZ Sports, Kobe Bryant’s shooting shirt from his legendary 81-point game has been sold for $277,000 at auction. The person who bought the shirt also got themselves a one-of-one NFT that came with it.
The shirt is a one-of-a-kind article of clothing as it worn by Bryant before he scored the 2nd-most points ever in an NBA game. On top of that, experts at Sotheby’s stated that it remains the only worn piece from that game on the market.
It was said that the for the shooting shirt closed last week. David Kohler, President of SCP Auctions and owner of one of the largest private Lakers memorabilia collections in the world, was the one who ended up buying it in the end.
