April 2017 Autographs & Memorabilia Auction - Ends Saturday, April 29th
The date of April 13, 2016 is one that will live in infamy in the eyes of basketball fans everywhere - specifically fans of the Los Angeles Lakers. On this day, Kobe Bryant managed to author the perfect farewell in his final career game, draining sixty points to power a stunning come-from-behind victory against the Utah Jazz. It was one of the most unforgettable games in Lakers history. In his 20 years with the team, Kobe Bryant delivered five NBA championships to the team and its fanbase and he did not disappoint in his final game. As the Lakers took the lead with Kobe's sixtieth point, the atmosphere in the packed-to-the-hilt Staples Center was electric. After the buzzer, Kobe made his rounds greeting past and present teammates as well as many members of his star-studded fanbase - all while adorned with a towel bearing a "Body Armor" logo. He delivered a memorable farewell speech with the towel around his neck. It was only as Bryant walked away from the festivities that the towel was grabbed off his shoulders by a lifelong fan and eventually made its way onto the market and into our auction. The towel measures 24 x 41" in size and exhibits light staining from its brush with greatness, perfectly matching all footage of the day. With Kobe's uniform and sneakers from the game unlikely to make it to market, this towel represents the most significant piece of memorabilia made available from his historic farewell night. A letter of provenance from the fan who was lucky enough to obtain the towel, as well as his two tickets from the game, will accompany the towel. Additionally, the winner of this prized relic will also receive access to a video clip that shows the fan as he grabbed the towel literally direct off Kobe's back! Don't miss this chance to own the final piece of Kobe Bryant's history with the Lakers and the NBA!
