Kobe Bryant

Mom Makes a KILLING

Hocking Kobe Memorabilia

No wonder she fought so hard ... Kobe Bryant's mother raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars selling her superstar son's stuff.

As TMZ reported ...Kobe and his mom Pamela Bryant fought an epic battle -- when she tried to auction off a bunch of his sports memorabilia -- Kobe even sued her to block the sale.  The two struck a deal -- the NBA star allowed her to sell around 10% of the treasure trove.

Well the auction ended Friday night ... and Kobe's old junk fetched a pretty penny -- 6 figures in all.

-- 2000 NBA L.A. Lakers Championship ring:  $165,889.80
-- 2000 All Star ring:  $52,854
-- Kobe's used H.S. Uniform: $48,048.15
-- Kobe's used Lakers jersey: $7,938.45 (less than the H.S. jersey, shockingly)
-- Kobe American Flag Adidas Sneakers: $7,216.25

A lot more was sold.  All in all the items raked in $450,000.

Sort of makes up for that whole "Kobe never bought me a house in Vegas thing" huh?

that's crazy... why sell his championship rings? unless he has so many now that they're useless to him, but still, damn....
let's see if she uses this money now to buy a house, considering it won't be the millions-dollar mansion she apparently wanted....

No wonder why Kobe is such a little b!tch. His momma is great in the sack but she steals from her own son.

Once you subtract the auction house's commission and income taxes, she really won't have that much to show for it. Certainly not enough to buy the kind of house she wanted in Vegas.

Who has the money to throw away on this junk? How about donating some of it to the Wounded Warriors Project or the charity that Bill O'Reilly has to get track chairs to vets. Priorities people.

Too bad she is not decent enough to set up college b-ball scholarships with the $$. She knows darn well her azz was not clipping coupons all these years. Kobe has done well by his folks. She should be straight up ashamed.

What a piece of trash. Any other mom would fight to keep her son's stuff - for herself. This woman only wants to make money off her son. Purely classless, subhuman trash.

Okay, so hocking at the pawn shop is different from hawking at an auction.
