Ever since his tragic passing back in January, the demand for Kobe Bryant memorabilia has been on the rise. Whether it be game-worn jerseys are autographed shoes, people want to get their hands on some Kobe swag. If you remember, a while back, Kobe’s mom and dad were gifted championship Lakers rings by the star and his mom actually tried to sell hers. Kobe was very upset about this but eventually, he let his mom sell the ring along with some other gear for $280,000.
According to TMZ, the man who bought the ring recently went to Goldin Auctions to see how much he could fetch for it. After starting the bids at $15,000, the man was able to get a whopping $206K which just goes to show how in-demand this piece of memorabilia was.

It’s also being reported that the ring that belonged to Kobe’s father will also be getting its own auction. If we had to guess, that ring will get the same amount, if not more since there are now less on the auction market.
This sale truly begs the question of how much is too much? With that being said, let us know in the comments below how much you would have paid for the ring.
