Report: Kobe items bring in big bucks

Kobe Bryant items reportedly bring in big bucks at controversial auction

Kobe Bryant items reportedly brought in a big haul during a controversial auction early Saturday.

The piece that netted the largest sum was a duplicate of Bryant’s 2000 Lakers championship ring that was given to the superstar’s father and sold for $174,184, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

The auction, which took place at New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions and was comprised of memorabilia given to Bryant’s parents, included a smaller version of that same championship ring ($108,153), Bryant’s 2000 All-Star ring ($55,597) and two game-used high school uniforms ($50,150 and $41,694).

Bryant took legal action to stop his parents from auctioning nearly 100 items, claiming that the memorabilia was not theirs. The two sides eventually reached a settlement that halted the sale of nearly 90 percent of the items.

Jackie Robinson’s bat believed to be used during his 1949 MVP season ($159,867), Yogi Berra’s mitt ($61,120) and a pair of Air Jordan sneakers autographed to Mike Tyson ($9,030) were other items sold at the auction.
