Remembering Kobe Bryant and His Legacy Through Basketball Cards
Like everyone else hearing of Kobe Bryant’s death, I’m in shock right now. For two decades on the court, he was the ultimate competitor. He was a champion. Internationally, he helped grow the sport of basketball and basketball cards like few — if any — have. But more than that, he was a father. A husband. A son.
As a collector, in times like these, I look through cards as a form of grieving in my own ways. I search out ones that have moments I remember or represent the athlete in some way.
Here are some Kobe Bryant cards that show Bryant’s game and the greatness he commanded on the court.
