Kobe Bryant’s Facemask Auctioned Off for $67,100

The facemask worn during 11 regular season games by Kobe Bryant fetched $67k in an online auction, benefitting homeless youth. Per the OC Register: “The mask worn this season by Kobe Bryant to protect the nose Dwyane Wade broke in the All-Star Game was won via eBay auction by a bidder for $67,100 Tuesday. The auction was held to benefit the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation’s Youth Homelessness Initiative. The primary goal is to have a measurable, positive impact on youth homelessness in Los Angeles. The week-long auction had 20 bidders and 129 separate bids. The top bid entering Tuesday was $22,222 but rose to $67,100 at the end, with the final bid taking a $67,000 bid and upping it by $100.”

    It is amazing the amount of disposable income some people have, but can’t really be mad since the money is going to help those in need.

    I know it goes to his foundation he’s just lucky he can put items like that up for that much money like i bet if he needed a quick buck one day he could sell his jock strap for 50,000.
