An iconic piece of memorabilia from Kobe Bryant’s youth has been sold.
According to TMZ Sports, Bryant’s childhood basketball hoop that was hanging from the garage of his childhood home in Philadelphia has been auctioned off by Heritage Auctions.
When it was all said and done, the hoop sold for a whopping $37,200.
Bryant’s childhood home was recently sold for $810,000 and the buyer decided to part ways with the hoop to recoup some of that cash.
When it comes to Kobe memorabilia, which has been in high demand since the tragic helicopter crash which took the life of Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others in January 2020, this is as rare as it gets.
Who else can say they own a piece of basketball history that was used to perfect Kobe Bryant’s jump shot on his rise to stardom? It’s well worth the price and truly one of a kind.
