eBay Buzz: This perfect Kobe Bryant 1996-97 Topps Chrome rookie Refractor is how much?

KobeBGSblackWhen Topps Chrome arrived in basketball, it was a bit simpler time than it is today — so much so that the brand was a retail-only release because the idea of merely Chroming a set perhaps wasn’t a sure thing.

Plenty of time has passed since 1996 and in that time so has the career of Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant who was a rookie back in 1996-97 Topps Chrome.

The best card in that landmark product is arguably Bryant’s Refractor version of his Rookie Card and this copy is the best of the best of the thousands that were pulled and saved since then.


This copy has the coveted BGS Black distinction — a perfect grade from Beckett Grading Services — and is the first of its kind. It’s on eBay right now and it’s an obvious landmark card that is being watched intently.

So, obviously, the natural question is … how much?
