A jersey of the basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash in 2020, was auctioned for $5.8 million. This was revealed by the New York city auction home Sotheby's on Thursday at the end of a one-week online auction.
The previous maximum price of $3.7 million for a Bryant jersey was clearly exceeded, and the seven million dollars thought for possible was missing out on a lot. The world record for a match worn jersey, i.e. a jersey worn in a game, is $10.1 million. This sum was offered last September for a Chicago Bulls jersey by Michael Jordan from 1998. The jersey of the late Argentine football icon Diego Maradona from the 1986 World Cup in 1986 against England (hand of God) achieved $9.3 million. Bryant's jersey with number 24 was sold by a confidential owner. According to Sotheby's, the Lakers icon is stated to have worn it in 25 games of the 2007/08 season.
At the end of the season, Bryant was awarded the only time in his profession as the most valuable player in the North American expert league NBA. Bryant passed away in the helicopter crash 3 years ago at the age of 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people passed away in the tragic mishap. Bryant, who was posthumously consisted of in the Hall of Popularity of the NBA, led the Lakers to a total of five championship titles and won two Olympic gold medals with the US selection.
