"With the 13th pick in the 1996 NBA draft, the Charlotte Hornets select Kobe Bryant from Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia". These were the words said by then NBA commissioner David Stern (D. 2020, HOF) when the Hornets made arguably their best draft selection in franchise history. The only problem? Kobe never ended up playing a single minute in a Hornets uniform. The Hornets later traded their once in a generation talented guard to the Los Angeles Lakers later that night for what turned into pennies on the dollar.

With the Mitchell and Ness jersey featured here, you can own a piece of history as the jersey elegantly captures a replica jersey of the very same that Bryant and the Lakers dawned in the 1996-97 season. This jersey is size 48 (XL) with everything sewn on and has been hand signed by Kobe Bryant (D. 2020, Los Angeles Lakers, HOF).

The autograph(s) includes an official PSA/DNA hologram and matching COA for authenticity purposes as well as an official Beckett Authentication Services hologram and matching LOA for authenticity purposes.
