Kobe Bryant’s childhood basketball hoop has sold for a King’s ransom!
The hoop fetched $37,200 at Heritage Auctions, and it’s truly prized memorabilia. It was attached to the garage at Kobe’s childhood home in Pennsylvania … it’s the hoop Kobe used to help perfect his legendary jump shot.
As TMZ reported, the home sold recently for $810,000, but the seller wanted a premium for the backboard and the rim and the buyer wasn’t interested. So, it was dismounted and the home seller just scored a sizable bounty.
Kobe memorabilia is in ultra-high demand since his tragic death a year ago last month … prices have skyrocketed for signed basketballs, jerseys and, frankly, anything Kobe. For example, a signed piece of the hardwood from Kobe’s Staples Center — where he played his final NBA game — was auctioned off north of $600k!
