Kobe Bryant’s final game towel up for auction
Towel anyone? Most likely you aren’t in need of one right now, but there is one particular towel you won’t be able to find in any store, physical or online.
This one is the towel that Kobe Bryant used in the last game of his career as a Los Angeles Laker. Sure it might be an ordinary towel, but it’s a piece of history if you consider yourself a collector.
If you don’t remember, the Lakers sold over a million dollars worth of merchandise at Staples Center on that memorable night, from lambskin hats to leather jackets.
Heritage Auctions is selling the Mamba’s towel with a starting bid of $5,000, with a pair of tickets from that game included with the accompanying description
Per Heritage Auctions:
“The towel measures 24×41″ in size and exhibits light staining from its brush with greatness, perfectly matching all footage of the day. Included with the towel are our consignors two tickets to the game, section 117, Row D, seats 6 & 7, perfectly positioned on the rail of the tunnel for an encounter with Kobe. Lakers fans set a world-record by purchasing over $1.2 million in Kobe merchandise at the Staples Center during his farewell game. With his uniform and sneakers from the game unlikely to make it to market, this towel represents the most significant piece of Kobe memorabilia made available from his historic farewell night. A letter of provenance from the consignor will accompany the lot.”
