Nike is offering an epic way to commemorate Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game. A full Black Mamba Pack — named for his alter ego and featuring every Nike model Bryant wore on the court during his 20-year career — is up for bid on eBay. The best part? Every single shoe is signed by the retiring Los Angeles Lakers star.
Bidding for the pack (in size 11) began Wednesday at 9 a.m. PDT and will close Saturday at 12 p.m PDT. The collection fades from white to black to signify Bryant’s career coming to a close. He will wear the black Kobe 11 with a gold Swoosh for his final game with the Lakers; tonight’s tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PDT against the Utah Jazz.
As of 5 p.m. EDT, the bid is $24,000. All proceeds will benefit the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, which supports youth and families in need by providing both financial resources and developing programs.
A full set of the Air Jordan line in L.A. Lakers colors honoring Bryant sold on eBay in February for more than $240,000.
When tonight’s game begins, the Nike Kobe 11 Mamba Day iD shoe will go on sale for a limited amount of time. The shoe features numbers significant in Bryant’s career.
Nike has created several short films commemorating Bryant’s career and is allowing fans to chime in with their thoughts on Bryant, whether they love him or hate him, using the Mamba Day Generator that allows users to put a farewell message on a photo and share on social media.
