Some secret Kobe Bryant memorabilia, consisting of two of his Los Angeles Lakers uniforms and cement handprints from his induction into the Grauman’s Chinese Theater hall of fame gallery, are going up for sale in April.
Julien’s Auctions stated Thursday that the items would be up for sale on April 30 as part of its annual sports auction that includes a silver medal from the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and a 2002 FIFA World Cup gold winner’s medal.
Bryant’s items were currently being prepared for auction when he, his daughter Gianna and 7 others were killed in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26.
” We are honored to include this collection of his items and pay tribute to this giant who was a motivation not just to basketball fans however to the entire world,” stated Darren Julien, Julien’s Auctions’ president and CEO.
The Lakers uniforms up for sale are one used during the 2000 NBA Finals, with his initial number 8. The uniform consisted of a black armband which marked the memory of Wilt Chamberlain, who passed away that season.
The other uniform was from his 2007 season, when his number was 24.
Other Bryant items include Adidas game shoes signed by the late legend; and a basketball signed by the 2010-11 Lakers consisting of Bryant and other stars such as Ron Artest and Pau Gasol.
Juliens stated the Bryant items were being sold by a collector in Kentucky. Fans can see what’s up for sale in between April 27 and April 30 in Beverly Hills, California, before the auction occurs at Juliens Auctions Beverly Hills.
Bryant, who was 41, and his child were kept in mind Monday at the Staples Center with a memorial that consisted of a performance from Beyoncé and tributes by Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal.
