Dropping Dimes: Kobe Bryant's MVP Jersey Expected To Sell For Record Amount At Auction - The Scene

The auction house estimates this sports memorabilia to fetch between $5 million to $7 million.

If the item sells for its expected rate, it would become the most expensive piece of Bryant’s memorabilia ever sold.

Bryant wore the jersey from his “sole MVP season” in 25 games.

It featured in murals globally with the basketball star wearing it on the evening of the MVP trophy presentation.

“This jersey has seeped into our global popular culture in a way that perhaps no other sports artifact has before – and has become iconic and synonymous with the image of Kobe Bryant,” Sotheby’s wrote.
