Key Takeaway

Kobe Bryant’s last Lakers road uniform, including his iconic number 24 jersey and signature Nike sneakers, was recently auctioned for nearly half a million dollars. The game-worn items, worn during Bryant’s second to last game as a Los Angeles Laker, hold significant historical value for basketball enthusiasts and collectors.

The auction, hosted by SCP Auctions and featuring items that were photo matched to prove their authenticity, attracted significant attention from sports memorabilia collectors. As expected, the historic pieces commanded a high price.

The game-worn Adidas Climacool shorts and jersey, both in larger sizes (3XL and 4XL, respectively), were sold for an impressive $366,967. Additionally, the size 14 Nike Kobe 11 Elite Lows were auctioned off for $118,230. In total, the items sold for a staggering $485,197.

The Last Lakers Road Game

The significance of these items lies in the fact that they were worn by Kobe Bryant during his second to last game as a Los Angeles Laker. Despite a loss with a score of 112-79, Bryant managed to score 13 points, all in the first quarter, demonstrating his determination and skill despite fatigue and injury. Notably, he faced off against NBA star Kevin Durant, showcasing his relentless competitive spirit.

The buyers of these valuable pieces remain unknown, but without a doubt, they have acquired a true piece of basketball history. Considering the profound impact Bryant had on the sport and his legendary career, it is unlikely that the Bryant family would ever part with the jersey from his final NBA game, a memorable match against the Utah Jazz in Los Angeles.

In addition to the uniform and sneakers, SCP Auctions also sold a game-used basketball from February 2009, when Bryant scored an astounding 61 points against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The Spalding official NBA game ball sold for an impressive $66,632, further demonstrating the enduring appeal of Kobe Bryant’s memorabilia.
