Kobe Bryant’s Iconic Lakers Jersey Expected To Sell: Don’t pass up the opportunity to have a signed Kobe Bryant jersey.
Bryant’s MVP-winning Los Angeles Lakers jersey will be offered at auction by Sotheby’s, which might fetch up to $7 million.

It is the same one worn in the now-famous shot where he is seen grabbing his jersey and yelling with joy after defeating the Denver Nuggets by 14 points in Game 2 of the Western Conference first-round series.
According to a news release from Sotheby’s, “this jersey has influenced popular culture in a way that is rarely seen in the sports community, becoming iconic and synonymous with the image of Kobe Bryant.” “The unfiltered passion shown in the images has influenced designers and artists around the world,” Numerous murals and pieces of art that honor the late basketball star include this jersey.

Sotheby’s head of streetwear and modern collectibles, Brahm Wachter, stated in the press release that the jersey has become “synonymous with Kobe’s ‘Mamba Mentality.'” Kobe scored 645 points over 8 months in his lone MVP season while wearing this jersey.
The highest price ever paid for a Bryant jersey would be realized if the jersey sells for the $5–$7 million estimate by Sotheby’s, according to the auction house.
The only other jersey with such high value is Michael Jordan‘s “The Last Dance” game-worn jersey from the 1998 NBA Finals, which fetched $10.1 million at a Sotheby’s auction in September 2022.
The Bryant jersey will have many pictures, art pieces, books, and other things. February 2–9 will see the lot up for auction. The first week of February will also see it on public exhibit at Sotheby’s New York. Keep yourself updated with all the latest news from our website Newswatchlist.com and get all the recent updates.
