Kobe Bryant Finals Jersey Fetches $35,270

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

Bidders weren’t shy about chasing the Lakers’ Game One jerseys from the 2009 NBA Finals.

Kobe Bryant’s game one jersey from the 2009 NBA Finals sold for $35,270 and change Thursday night.

The jersey headlined a collection of Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic jerseys sold by NBA Auctions. It was the second year the league conducted a public sale of shirts worn in its championship series.

The Lakers home gold jerseys dominated the auction. While the Bryant jersey garnered 32 bids, Derek Fisher’s #2 jersey actually attracted more. It sold for $10,019 and generated 39 bids in the two-week online event.

Lamar Odom’s #7 Lakers jersey brought $8019 and Pau Gasol’s #16 sold for $6760.

The top-selling Orlando jersey belonged to Dwight Howard. The young star has plenty of fans, but couldn’t come close to Bryant territory in terms of interest. Howard’s blue #12 was won for $7520.

Other Game One jersey sales included: Trevor Ariza ($4400); Andrew Bynum ($4220) and Hedo Turkoglu ($1770). Turkoglu’s jersey was worn only in the first half, after which the Magic star apparently changed into a new shirt.

Jerseys from Game Three are now online, with the auction closing June 25. Bryant’s purple road jersey currently stands at over $4500.
