Want some Kobe Bryant merchandise? No problem, here’s a $38,024 cap
Forget the cost of tickets for Kobe Bryant’s final game. You should see the price of some of the merchandise.
AEG announced a slew of exclusive Bryant “24 Collection” items leading up to his career finale Wednesday against Utah at Staples Center.
The costliest item is a black lamb-leather New Era cap with an 18-karat gold “24” on the front. Brace for sticker shock, please: It retails for $38,024.
For those looking to save a little money, AEG also offers a purple diamond cashmere cap for $24,008. It even has gold snakeskin under the visor.
There were only eight made of each of the caps.
Still outside your price range? Don’t fret.
There’s a jersey with a snake-print body that details Bryant’s career accomplishments up and down the inseam. It costs $824.
AEG is also selling caps to commemorate Bryant’s 81-point game 10 years ago. They feature Swarovski crystals and his points per quarter from that night embossed on four side panels. Each cap costs $248.24. Only 248 were made.
Hey, it’s still cheaper than a ticket to the final game of Bryant’s 20-year career. They range from $670 for a seat in the upper reaches to $9,270 for second row at center court.
AEG is also offering Bryant coins, jackets and pins among the 50 or so items available while supplies last. They can be found now at Lakersstore.com and Wednesday at the Team LA Store at Staples Center.
