Kobe Bryant Mask Auction to Raise Cash for Foundation

Looking for something a little different to add to your collection?  How about Kobe Bryant’s mask?

The Lakers star is hoping to raise some money for the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation by selling the now autographed mask he wore for 11 games earlier this season.   In the third quarter of the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, February 26, Dwyane Wade fouled Bryant across the face, breaking his nose and giving him a concussion.

The extra protection didn’t slow him down.

The auction is taking place on eBay (click here to see it) and as of Wednesday night, the high bid was $3,100 and it still has nearly a full week before it closes.

He signed only his first name and number on the clear plastic device.  The autograph comes with authentication from Panini America.
