A jersey of the basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in 2020, comes under the hammer and might accomplish a maximum worth in early February.
The Jersey of the former NBA starter of the Los Angeles Lakers is anticipated to cost up to 7 million dollars, which was revealed by the New York city auction home Sotheby’s on Thursday.
The previous maximum price of $3.7 million might nearly be doubled for a Bryant jersey.
The world record for a Match worn jersey, i.e. a jersey carried in a game, does not transfer the auction.
This is $10.1 million, which was offered last September for a Chicago Bulls jersey by Michael Jordan.
Jordan, who is thought about the very best basketball gamer in history, wore this throughout the so-called Last Dance, his last title race with the Bulls in 1998.
Bryant’s iconic jersey with number 24, which a confidential owner markets, is part of an online auction from February second to 9th.
According to Sotheby’s, the Lakers icon is said to have used it in 25 video games of the 2007/08 season.
At the end of the season, Bryant was awarded the only time in his career as the most valuable player in the North American professional league NBA.
Bryant died in the helicopter crash three years earlier at the age of 41, and his 13-year-old child Gianna and 7 other people passed away in the awful mishap.
Bryant, who was posthumously included in the Hall of Popularity of the NBA, led the Lakers to an overall of 5 championship titles and won two Olympic gold medals with the United States choice.
