The NBA & the MeiGray Group’s fourth annual NBA Finals jersey auction is underway.
MeiGray’s contract with the NBA allows the company to sell jerseys and selected memorabilia from NBA league events.
Kobe Bryant’s familiar #24 jersey leads the bidding thus far, having topped $3260. Celtics’ star Kevin Garnett’s #5 is at $1040 with Paul Pierce ($770), Pau Gasol ($720) and Rajon Rondo ($698) rounding out the top five.
Last year, Bryant’s Game One jersey sold for $35,270.
In 2008, the Game One jersey sales for both the Lakers and Celtics topped $112,000.
The current jersey auction runs through June 22.
The auction of jerseys from Game Three of the Finals will take place later this month.
