St. Mary's high school jersey which he wore for his iconic Sports
Illustrated "The Chosen One" cover of the February 18th, 2002 issue, which
accompanies the lot. Consigned by investor Mark Pepitone from his world
record-breaking collection, this photo-matched jersey was worn both for the
historic photo shoot and the high school game that same evening where James
scored 32 points and collected seven rebounds. The most watched and famous
pre-college prospect to ever play the game, James wore this very jersey when
he was introduced to the sporting world by gracing his very first cover of

named the greatest North American athlete of the 20th century by ESPN's
"SportsCentury's" distinguished 48-member panel, led the Chicago Bulls to
six NBA championships and won the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award in
each of those championships. Limited Edition jerseys worn by Kobe Bryant,
the late basketball legend and 18-time All-Star, who won five NBA

Kobe Bryant signed jersey, one of only eight made, listing some of Bryant's

season and a framed (78 out of 88 made) Kobe Bean Bryant signed 2000 NBA
Champions jersey, along with the iconic photo of Bryant's reverse jam taken
from above the rim, accompanied by a 1997-1998 Metal Universe #81 Kobe
Bryant trading card and two separate Los Angeles 2000 Champions pins.
Considered one of the greatest players of the game, a collection of
treasures from Diego Maradona's spectacular career and legacy is expected to
be one of the highly anticipated moments of the auction. Signed and game
worn jerseys, worn by "El Pibe de Oro" ("The Golden Boy") including the 1990
World Cup match against Brazil and the game where he scored his first ever
goal for Argentina, as well as his signed and worn boots for F.C. Barcelona
