8 Million – Sothebys Auction House
A jersey of the basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in 2020, was auctioned for $5.8 million.
This was revealed by the New York auction house Sotheby’s on Thursday at the end of a one-week online auction.
The previous optimum cost of $3.7 million for a Bryant jersey was plainly gone beyond, and the 7 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 amount 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 versus England (hand of God) accomplished $9.3 million.
Bryant’s jersey with number 24 was offered for sale by an anonymous owner.
According to Sotheby’s, the Lakers icon is said to have used it in 25 games of the 2007/08 season.
At the end of the season, Bryant was granted the only time in his profession as the most important gamer in the North American professional league NBA.
