Kobe Bryant Signed Authentic Los Angeles Lakers Jersey Display, Panini Authentic.

A client asked SignatureRoyale.com to custom frame a Kobe Bryant signed Jersey this week. It struck me as odd as it was the first one we had been asked to do over the years. Most signed Basketball Jerseys we frame, same with signed photos, are of Michael Jordan. The demand for Michael Jordan signed items has remained steady. His Officially Licensed, signed items are always in demand an matted and framed they sell very well. This week the news was that Kobe Bryant had passed Michael Jordan on the all-time regular-season scoring list. Not much fan fare was made of the milestone and it struck me that no matter what Kobe Bryant does in his career he will always trail Michael Jordan in one area, respect. It all started when Michael Jordan made the winning basket against Georgetown during the NCAA Finals in 1982, it continued with the Nike “Be like Mike” advertising campaign. In 1986 he scored sixty three points against the Boston Celtics in a playoff game. Television helped his image when he won the 1988 Slam Dunk Contest. Then there was the 1997 NBA Finals when he scored 38 points while stricken with the flu. Television was again to the fore when the whole world witnessed the 1998 last shot to win the game and the series against the Utah Jazz. And who amongst us does not remember the moment when he hugged the 1991 NBA Championship trophy, tears streaming down his face. Kobe Bryant is a great player, and no one can tell us different. He will never be “Mike” no matter how hard he tries, or what he achieves.
