WEST BERLIN, New Jersey (AP) — Two NBA championship rings that Kobe Bryant gave to his parents each sold for more than $100,000 at auction.
Goldin Auctions said six items of Bryant memorabilia sold for a combined $433,531 in the monthlong auction that closed Saturday.
A 2000 Lakers championship ring gifted by Bryant to his father, Joe, sold for $174,184. A ring given to his mother, Pamela, from the same championship season went for $108,153.
Bryant had filed a suit against the auction company, saying his mother didn't have the right to sell the items. A settlement was reached last month allowing six items to be auctioned after the five-time NBA champion's parents apologized to their son.
As part of the sale, Goldin Auctions is donating $62,565 to The Bully Project, a Bryant-supported charity.
