Kobe Bryant 1996-97 Los Angeles Lakers, Authentic Hardwood Classic Jersey. On November 3rd, Kobe Bryant made his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers wearing #8, the sum of 1, 4 and 3, numbers he’d worn previously. This number was the beginnings of one of the biggest NBA player legacies of all time. Kobe Bryant, 1996-97 Rookie Season, Los Angeles Lakers Authentic Hardwood Classic Jersey! There isn’t anything else in the world like an Authentic Hardwood Classic. This is one of the most important jerseys in Kobe Bryant’s history, it is where it all began! This Kobe Bryant Hardwood Classic Authentic Jersey is a TRUE COPY of the NBA Jersey that he wore on the court during this season. Unlike the HWC Swingman’s, the Authentic ranges replicate the same fabrics, trims, cuts and aesthetic details that you would also find on any of Kobe Bryant’s actual Jerseys from back in the day. Kobe’s jersey is made from 100% polyester mesh, the same material as the actual NBA jerseys at the time, instead of the cheaper performance-based material found in Swingman’s and features side vents for extra ventilation. With the Authentic 2-colour twill on the front and back for Bryant’s Name and Number. Due to the love, care and attention to detail put into creating a jersey of this form, it comes at the higher price point. This is a collectables item. An apparel piece that will never go out of style, for a player that will stand the test of time! Kobe Bryant jerseys by Mitchell and Ness ONLY come as Authentic’s, they do not come as HWC Swingman’s the way some player’s jerseys do.
