In honor of the late great Kobe Bryant's Hall of Fame selection, Spalding has officially released a limited-edition basketball that came out today in honor of when the game was first played nearly 129 years ago in Springfield, MA.
The last Spalding basketball ever designed with the help of Kobe himself, the ball will be released in limited quantities—2,408 available globally, and just 824 in the United States. The custom premium display box showcases Kobe’s signature, alongside his 18 All-Star nominations, 5 championship trophies, 2 Finals MVPs and regular-season MVP. You can purchase on the Spalding App for $299.99 today.
The enshrinement ceremony for Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and the rest of the inductees into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will be pushed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
