Why would you want Kobe Bryant's autographed cast? More like, why wouldn't you want Kobe Bryant's(notes) autographed cast, amirite? (And no, "because it's a used cast" is not a good reason. Don't ruin my fun.)
Think about all the great things that could come from owning this. First, you've got a one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia. Literally no one else in the world including Kobe will have this. That's pretty impressive to have sitting on your bookshelf.
But there's more. If you compare this cast's autograph to the back of your Zoom Kobe IVs, you can start a Kobe Bryant Autograph Museum, and that's just a lucrative business idea. You'll make back every dollar you spend, for sure.
However, I have a more sinister idea in mind. The cast has been "DNA certified," which means there's at least some DNA leftover on the inside. That means you could theoretically clone Kobe Bryant sometime in the future. Think of the possibilities and tell me this isn't worth $7,500.
