Kobe Bryant Auctioning Famous ‘Masked Mamba’ Mask

Remember that whole Masked Mamba craze that took the internet by storm this season? After Dwyane Wade broke Kobe’s nose in the All-Star Game, Bryant was forced to wear a mask for 11 games to allow his nose to heal.

The internet soon was filled with memes and images of Bryant and his mask, and even a few Twitter accounts.

Now, Bryant is going to be auctioning off his game-worn mask that he wore during the season.

The auction will take place on eBay, and will allow users the chance to bid on the mask, which has been autographed by Bryant.

All proceeds will be used to benefit the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation’s Youth Homelessness Initiative. The primary goal of the foundation is to have a considerable, positive impact on the issue of youth homelessness in Los Angeles.

The starting bid for the mask is $250, but will most likely be sold at a much higher price.
