Chinese man returns Kobe Bryant’s stolen Lower Merion High School jersey

More than two years after burglars swiped Kobe Bryant memorabilia from a display case at Lower Merion High School, the missing jerseys has been safely returned to Lower Merion High School by a superfan in China who purchased the stolen item online for approximately $2,000.

The missing items included Bryant’s framed high school replica jersey, the 1996 PIAA Boys Basketball State Championship trophy, a net from that championship game and five pairs of Bryant’s signed Nike sneakers.

Bryant went straight from graduating high school in 1996 to the NBA.
