A championship ring that Kobe Bryant gave to his father, Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, after winning his first NBA title with Los Angeles Lakers is now up for auction. Bryant received the 14-karat ring in 2000 with his former teammates. A replica of the one he received is now being auctioned off by Goldin Auctions. It’s expected to fetch over $250,000 as per TMZ Sports.

Bryant also gave a ring to his mother, Pamela, who sold hers and Joe’s in 2013 alongside other Mamba memorabilia. Pamela’s ring was recently auctioned off by Goldin for $206,000 USD. Bidding on Joe’s ring will be available starting June 22 on Goldin Auctions’ website. The online sale will end on July 18.

Since Bryant’s tragic passing in a helicopter crash in January, prices for his memorabilia have risen. Last April, Golden launched a “Hall of Fame Announcement” sale that featured a signed adidas Crazy 1 that Bryant wore in Game 5 of the 2001 NBA Finals (with bids exceeding $25,000 USD) and multiple jerseys that span from Bryant’s rookie season to his final campaign.
