Kobe Mask Auction: Plastic Mask On Sale For Kobe's Charity


The Masked Mamba is no more, but the memories can live on for one lucky Lakers fan.

Kobe Bryant is auctioning off the protective face mask he wore for eleven games earlier this season, and the proceeds will go to help homeless youth in Los Angeles.

Kobe donned the famous mask after breaking his nose in this year's All-Star game, but the 16-year NBA veteran didn't miss a beat despite the injury. He scored over 31 points a game and recorded his 29,000th career point while wearing the mask.

Since forming the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation in 2011, Kobe has brought money and attention to the issue of youth homelessness in Los Angeles. Between 7,000 and 10,000 of LA's homeless are under the age of 24, a fact that Bryant said "shocked the hell out of me" when he first announced the initiative. He also mentioned that as a father of two, the problem just "hits home more."

As of this writing, the bidding for Kobe's mask is up to $2,550, but there are still six days left in the auction.

Check out photos of Kobe looking fierce in his mask.
