A US media has revealed that a towel that Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant used during his farewell speech after his final National Basketball League game was sold at 33,000 US dollars.

The late Kobe had wrapped the towel around his shoulders to wipe his sweat while delivering his final speech as a Los Angeles Lakers player.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar closed his farewell speech with a signature phrase, “Mamba Out” and gave his towel to a fan at the court as he walked out.

Mamba’s towel has since been sold several times with the latest one being the online auction that saw the highest bidder cashing in over 33,000 US dollars.

The winning bidder David Kohler, is said to be a devoted fan of the Lakers, was given Mamba’s towel and two used tickets for the Lakers 2016 game.

According to Jeff Woolf who is the president of Iconic Auctions, the winning bidder is known for having a large Lakers memorabilia collection and is planning to open up his own museum to showcase his collections.

“He is a devoted Lakers fan,” Woolf said. “His long-term plan is to create a museum in southern California.”

“Winning bidder of the Body Armor towel that Kobe wore in his final game is David Kohler, whose @Lakers Shrine has more than 2,000 Lakers items. Kohler bought the towel in @IconicAuctions sale, which closed this morning at $32,720, including buyer’s premium.” Said Darren Rovell on Twitter.

Kobe Bryant died at the age of 41, after a helicopter that he had boarded together with his daughter and other six people crashed and killed everyone on board.

Kobe was the Lakers player for his entire 20-year NBA career where he won over five titles. He was also an 18-time NBA All-Star and the 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player and won many titles for the US including the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and 2012 in London.
