In an effort to provide relief for those that have been impacted by the coronavirus in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers, Sparks, Galaxy and Kings are selling discounted memorabilia through the Team LA Store. All proceeds from the sales will to go Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.
Among the items being sold are a few Kobe Bryant jerseys from the 2011 NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles, Lakers hats and the commemorative Jerry Buss patch the team wore in 2013 following Buss’s passing. To put into perspective how discounted some of these items are, a leather New Era Lakers cap that originally retailed for $200 is on sale for $30. There are also a few Sparks shirts that are on sale for $10, as opposed to the $30 they originally sold for.
They’re great deals for a great cause.
