    1997 Kobe Bryant Single Signed Limited Edition All-Star Weekend Basketball from The Steve Koonin Collection - Slam Dunk Champion! Signed by the eighteen-year-old rookie phenom, straight out of Lower Merion High School, at the 1997 All-Star Weekend in Cleveland when his mid-air, between-the-legs maneuver garnered him the coveted NBA Slam Dunk crown.

    Funky black/white/blue Spalding sphere displays gorgeous "All-Star Weekend, Cleveland '97" logo with "347 of 750" and "Limited Edition" stamping. Signed and inscribed "Kobe 8" in 9/10 vintage black sharpie on white panel. Ball is NRMT as well. Killer display piece for sure. Letter of provenance from Steve Koonin. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.


    More Information: A message from our consignor:

    As Covid 19 closed down the NBA and my office as CEO of the Atlanta Hawks , our home quickly became our office. Since March of last year, I have taken countless Zoom calls and meetings from my home office. Seeing the same four walls day after day, I had an idea for how to give back from a career that has given me so much.

    Over the last 30+ year career at both Coca-Cola and Turner Broadcasting, I had the privilege and good fortune to work with dozens of sports teams and star athletes. In these roles, I was often afforded lots of gifts; I received signed sports memorabilia to commemorate the work we did together.

    While working from home day after day while our country is ravaged by the pandemic, I decided it's time to turn these past memories into current action and help others. Heritage Auctions is going to be selling items from my collection to raise money for college education. 100% of all dollars raised will be donated to education based charities including the Koonin Scholarship Program at the University of Georgia's Grady College.
