8 Iconic L.A. Lakers Items That Would Raise More Money Than Kobe Bryant’s Mask

Kobe Bryant had to break a nose, but because of the Los Angeles Lakers guard's pain, his charity ended up with a lot more money.

The mask that Kobe Bryant once wore after breaking his nose during the All-Star Game back in February was sold at auction last week for $67,100 with all of the money raised from the auction going to the Bryant Family Foundation, Kobe's charity that works to help the homeless in Los Angeles.

Kobe's mask became an iconic piece of Lakers' history after he wore it for just a few weeks, showing off the toughness, grit and determination that Bryant plays with, while looking pretty damn cool in the process.

However, the sale of Kobe Bryant's mask got me thinking. Which artifact in Los Angeles Lakers history is the most iconic, and which ones would bring even more money than Kobe's short-lived mask?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I've gone ahead and thought this one out for you, and there's no question about what No. 1 would be in my mind, but there are a handful more that would be interesting to be sold.
