Kobe Bryant Rookie Card History

There’s no denying that Kobe Bryant was one of the most globally-respected athletes in the world before his death last year. The five-time NBA champion died with his daughter Gianna and seven others in a helicopter crash in California in January of 2020, at just 41 years old. Within weeks of his death, Kobe Bryant rookie cards for sale were everywhere on the internet – increasing in value by 600%.

"Kobe Bryant was one of the fiercest competitors of all time and a truly larger-than-life figure. His rookie card is one of the rarest in existence and one of only two on earth in black label pristine condition, which is the highest possible obtainable grade. The fact that it sold for the final auction price of $1.795 million, the all-time record for any Kobe Bryant card, speaks to just how beloved he was around the world."
