Bryant rings sell for $282,000 at auction

The SportsXchange

A memorabilia dispute between Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and his parents officially ended when the settled items sold at an auction Friday night.

Among the items Bryant allowed Goldin Auctions to sell were two duplicate versions of Bryant's 2000 NBA championship ring that were originally gifts for his parents.

One of the rings sold for $174,184 while the other fetched $108,153.

ESPN reported that the larger ring, intended for Bryant's father, was 14-karat gold, surrounded by 28 diamonds and was a size 11 1/2.

Also, two of Bryant's high school jerseys sold for more than $40,000 each.

Earlier this year, Bryant's parents agreed to sell nearly 100 items to Goldin Auctions to auction off, but Bryant sued, claiming the items belonged to him and were not for sell. A settlement was reached in which the majority of the items were pulled from the auction house and Bryant's parents publicly apologized last month.
