Kobe Bryant will always be remembered as one of the most significant basketball players to have ever competed in the sport. More than two years have passed since Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and others lost their lives in a tragic helicopter crash and many people still cannot get over his untimely demise.
According to TMZ Sports, Kobe Bryant’s game-worn Lakers jersey from his first playoff series, which is the only one publicly known/available, ended up selling for $2,735,546 million.
The jersey was on the auction block at SCP Auctions and after 26 bids, the purple and gold Lakers home jersey was finally sold. Bryant wore the jersey at least five times as well.
This includes two home games during the 1996-1997 NBA playoff series against Karl Malone, John Stockton, and the Utah Jazz. The identity of the fan who won the jersey is not known but it is evident he is rich.
