Panini America Appreciates Indelible Ink of the Incomparable Kobe Bryant (Gallery)

April 13, 2016

Kobe Auto Main

Tonight in Los Angeles, Lakers icon Kobe Bryant will play the final game of his remarkable career, closing the curtain on a 20-year reign that featured, among other feats, five NBA titles, two NBA Finals MVPs, two season scoring titles, 18 NBA All-Star Game nods, more points than any other player in Lakers history and the third-highest point total in NBA history.

Simply, Bryant is one of the greatest players in NBA history whose legacy, like his coveted signature, is indelible. That’s one of the reasons Panini America signed the international superstar to an exclusive agreement in 2009, making him the company’s global trading card ambassador. In the years since, Bryant has definitively left his distinctive mark for Panini America on some of the most sought after trading cards ever produced.

To honor Bryant on this #MambaDay occasion, we offer a must-see gallery of some of Kobe’s illustrious ink from the last several years. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage.
