IN BRIEF

An iconic offering, these shoes were worn by basketball immortal Kobe Bryant during his 1996 rookie season. The shoes, featuring extremely scarce full name signatures from Kobe, were worn during Bryant’s 7th game of his career. The rarity of being able to attribute a pair of sneakers worn by Kobe during his rookie season to a certain date can not be understated. Additionally, it is possible these very sneakers were worn during Kobe’s first road game of his career in which he scored his first points. Kobe memorabilia is on fire, with a rookie game worn jersey recently selling for $3.69M via Goldin Auctions in May, 2021. Two pairs of Kobe Bryant rookie season game used sneakers recently sold for $192,000 and $150,000, respectively, at Heritage Auctions.

THE ATHLETE

Kobe Bryant is one of the most beloved and accomplished basketball players to ever play the game. Bryant spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, helping them win five NBA championships, and was an 18-time All-Star, a 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, a 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), and a two-time NBA Finals MVP. Bryant also led the NBA in scoring twice, and ranks fourth on the league’s all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists. He is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. He was also the first guard in NBA history to play at least 20 seasons. His 18 All-Star designations are the second most all time, while it is the record for most consecutive appearances as a starter. Bryant’s four All-Star Game MVP Awards are tied with Bob Pettit for the most in NBA history. Bryant tragically died at age 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in 2020. Their memories will forever live on in the hearts and minds of sports fans.

THE OFFERING

● These sneakers were worn by Kobe Bryant during the 7th game of his career and the 5th road game he ever played during his 1996 rookie season on November 13, 1996 in San Antonio.
●Kobe played 6 minutes scoring 6 points during the game. Despite, playing just 6 minutes in the game, the shoes exhibit excellent multi-game use.
●Given Kobe was a relative unknown prospect with limited playing time, Kobe would not switch his sneakers out every game. This gives reason to believe that this is possibly the first pair of Black sneakers ever issued to Kobe Bryant as a member of the Lakers.
Kobe played the first road game of his career 8 nights earlier on November 5, 1996 at Madison Square Garden versus the New York Knicks. It was in this game that Kobe would go on to score the first points of his legendary career.
●Kobe was wearing these exact style sneakers as he scored the first points of his career.
● To date, no road pairs of sneakers have been able to be attributed to any of the games prior to November 13th, 1996 - giving reason to believe these might be the exact sneakers worn during Bryant’s first road game of his career, first points ever scored, and his first game at Madison Square Garden.
● The shoes were given to a fan directly after the November 13th game in San Antonio, and signed by Kobe with the inscription “To Tony” on each sneakers.
●The autographs on the sneakers feature Kobe’s full name, an extremely rare version and vintage signature that shows Kobe’s appreciation to the fan for asking for his sneakers. Kobe would rarely sign his full name, and usually opt to sign just “Kobe”.
● The shoes are accompanied by a detailed letter from Tony Cerda describing how he obtained the sneakers from Kobe Bryant.
● Authenticated by Beckett and Mears. There is a very limited amount of high resolution images of Kobe from this era. Collectable will continue to research photos of Kobe in attempt to conclusively photomatch the sneakers.
