Lakers NBA title ring Kobe Bryant gifted to father sells for $927K

A band from the Los Angeles Lakers ‘ 2000 NBA title– endowed from Kobe Bryant to his father, Joe” Jellybean” Bryant– sold for$ 927, 000, including buyer’s advanced with collectibles industry Goldin, over the weekend.

The most money actually paid for an NBA finals ring was the result of the fiercely contested 43-bid auction.

The 2000 tournament, Kobe’s second of five names, was the only time he brilliant his father with a circle. Goldin noted that it is an identical copy of the one given to Kobe: BRYANT etched on one side, with the same sizing ( 11½ ), weight ( 59. 6 grams ) and etchings.

Pam and Joe Bryant’s original consigned the band to Goldin in 2013 and sold it for$ 173, 000. For this week’s price, the 2013 customer consigned the necklace, which comes with a notice of authenticity from the Bryants.

It is n’t, however, an overall record paid for a sports championship ring, that still belongs to the$ 2. 09 million netted by Charlie Sheen for Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series title ring.
