A full set of the Air Jordan line of sneakers honoring Kobe Bryant sold on eBay on Sunday for $240,100.
On Friday in Toronto during NBA All-Star Weekend, Jordan Brand presented Bryant with a full set of the Air Jordan line in both white and black. Bryant will keep the white but the black set was auctioned off on eBay to benefit the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation.
The starting bid was $100,000, and the set was only up for auction for 24 hours. The collection includes the Air Jordan III and VIII that Bryant wore during the 2002-03 season.
“The Jordan Brand is about more than basketball, it’s about leaving a legacy and honoring those who have left a legacy,” said Jordan Brand president Larry Miller. “Tonight the brand was able to honor one the game’s great players and the legacy he created.”
The Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation supports youth and families in need by providing both financial resources and developing programs.
