Rare Kobe Bryant Card With his Signature Expected to Sell For More Than $1 Million At Upcoming Auction

The memorabilia for deceased NBA Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant had always been at a premium, but since his death, the items that haven’t been auctioned off have been record-breaking. This upcoming weekend, another Byant item is expected to fetch more than $1 million.

According to TMZ Sports, a basketball card that was signed by Bryant himself will be on the auction block. The card, which is considered one of the rarest and most coveted Bryant cards is the 1997 Skybox Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems #81.

This card is anticipated to get more than $1 million when the auction goes live.

SCP Auctions listed the card on its website prior to the start of the auction:

“Over the last two years the hobby has seen its share of eye-popping card results, especially within the modern market. Still, only a handful can truly be described as ground-breaking and industry-shaking. Here’s one to add to the short list: an autographed Kobe Bryant #81 Precious Metal Gems card from the prestigious 1997-98 Skybox Metal Universe set. How rare is a ’97 PMG Kobe signed by the Black Mamba himself? This is the first and only known example ever offered publicly. It could very well be the only one that exists, making it a true 1-of-1 grail of the late legend.”

The auction house is saying that this is a one-of-a-kind Bryant card. In February, an unsigned green PMG (graded BGS NM-MT 8.5) Bryant basketball card was sold for $2 million.

Bryant played his whole 20-year NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was a five-time NBA champion, a two-time Finals MVP, and the league’s most valuable player in 2008.

During his career, Bryant made the All-Star team 18 times and was the youngest player to ever reach 30,000 career points. Bryant retired from the NBA in 2016. 

The 41-year-old basketball legend died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people on Jan. 26, 2020.
