Lower Merion High School Unveils Kobe Bryant’s Recovered High School Jersey

 

During Super Bowl LI in 2017, someone broke into Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia and stole Kobe Bryant memorabilia.

The stolen goods included an extremely valuable state championship trophy and a Kobe Bryant jersey.

That jersey eventually made it to Chinese collector and Kobe fan Liu Zhe. Zhe wasn’t the one who stole the jersey, as he paid a good amount of money for it, according to Zhe himself, he paid $2,000 for the jersey. Once the jersey arrived at his house, he recognized it and realized that it may be the jersey that was stolen from Lower Merion High School.

After initially planning to personally hand over the jersey to Kobe in Shenzhen (when Bryant was part of the 2019 FIBA World Cup draw), he agreed to send it back to Lower Merion and didn’t ask for any compensation.

Now, the jersey is exactly where it always belonged. In Lower Merion’s first home game since Kobe Bryant’s death, the returned jersey was unveiled.
