A uniform worn by the late Kobe Bryant, who played an active part in the NBA, was sold at an American auction for $5,849,700 (approximately 7.36 billion won).
ESPN, an American sports media outlet, said on the 10th (Korean time), “The signed jersey worn by Bryant during the 2007-2008 season, when he was selected as the MVP, was sold for $5,849,700 at a Sotheby’s New York auction.” It is the highest bid ever and the second most expensive auction price ever for a basketball jersey.”
Bryant, who made his debut with the LA Lakers in 1996, left numerous records until his retirement in 2016, including 5 league championships, 2 championship MVPs, 1 regular league MVP, 18 All-Star selections, and 4 All-Star MVPs. He passed away suddenly in a helicopter accident.
Bryant’s uniform, which was awarded at the auction, was worn in 25 of the 82 regular league games in the 2007-2008 season, when he was the only regular league MVP, and was also worn in the playoffs and conference finals.
The record for the highest price ever auctioned for a basketball uniform was the one worn by Michael Jordan in the first leg of the 1998 championship match in September of last year, which was sold for 10.1 million dollars at the time, or 12.7 billion won in Korean money. 바카라
This is also the highest-ever record among sports-related auctions excluding sports cards.
ESPN said, “It’s not uncommon for sports-related auctions to exceed $5 million, excluding sports cards.” In July, Muhammad Ali’s championship belt sold for $6.18 million.”
Also in 2019, the Olympic Declaration written in 1892 was sold for $8.8 million, and the uniform worn by Diego Maradona in May of last year against England in the quarterfinals of the 1986 Mexico World Cup was sold for $9.28 million.
