Kobe Bryant will always be remembered as one of the best basketball players to have ever competed on the basketball court. It has been more than two years since the world lost Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and others in a tragic helicopter crash and many people still cannot get over his untimely demise. His name continues to carry a lot of value and one of his PMG cards will be auctioned for a lot of money as well.
According to TMZ, arguably one of the rarest Kobe Bryant cards of all time, the 1997 Skybox Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems #81, has made its way to the auction table.
The Bryant card is numbered 60 out of 100, which makes it a very rare item. What truly makes it special is the fact that Kobe Bryant himself signed it, thus making it a 1-of-1.
The signature was authenticated and graded a Mint 9 by PSA, who is one of the premiere graders and authenticators. SCP Auctions will be putting it up for auction and it is expected to sell for over $1 million.
The PMGs are incredibly significant among collectors and there are two versions of each card. The first 10 numbered cards are green (Emerald), while, 11 through 100 are red. The signed card has already been bid on 10 times With it being up for auction on June 4th, we’ll have to see how much it will end up being sold for in the end.
