Kobe Bryant Signed Ticket From Final Game in NBA Sells For $40K At Auction https://t.co/AXc3hVzsSD

There were 42 total bids at Goldin Auctions before the ticket sold.ย 

The April 13, 2016 game was an unforgettable one as Bryant scored 60 points in a win over the Utah Jazz. He took over in the fourth quarter before addressing the crowd with an iconic speech ending with "Mamba Out."

It closed a 20-year career that included 18 All-Star selections, five NBA titles and 33,643 points that ranked third in history when he retired.

Even an upper-deck ticket for Bryant's final game likely came with a hefty price tag at the time, but a signature from the eventual Hall of Famer certainly helped the seller get their money back and then some.
