Ticket Stubs From Kobe Bryant’s Last Ever LA Lakers Game Being Sold For $225

Ticket Stubs From Kobe Bryant’s Last Ever LA Lakers Game Being Sold For $225

Kobe Bryant bowed out of his final NBA game by setting a new points record for a player of his age on Wednesday night.

Yet with the Black Mamba hanging up his sneakers for good, it seems the world wants Kobe more than ever, with tickets from last night’s game already being sold on eBay.

Bryant confirmed he would be calling time on his 20-year carreer with the LA Lakers in November last year, claiming via ESPN, “this season is all I have left to give.”

And although Bryant’s 60 point game against Utah Jazz will go down in history, it seems the player’s legacy will live on through memorabilia too.

ESPN Sports reporter Darren Rovell confirmed that used ticket stubs from last night’s game were already being sold for all sorts of wacky prices, ranging from $125 to $175 each:

We even found this used stub that is still on sale for $225, but you better be quick because it’s only got two hours left to run!

What do you think of the media circus which has surrounded Kobe’s retirement?

Is it a tad over the top for a player who was struggling to make an impact late in his career?

Or is Bryant deserving of all the praise, adulation and highly-priced memorobilia?
