The jersey that Kobe Bryant wore for the first half of this year's NBA All-Star Game sold Thursday night for $100,040.

The price was the record paid for a piece of memorabilia sold on the NBA's auction website, which has been around since 2006.

The price paid for what will be Bryant's last All-Star jersey is almost more than double the previous record of $50,040, set when the NBA sold the jersey LeBron James wore in his first game back to Cleveland at the start of the 2014-15 season after he left for his stint in Miami.

Bryant, who was the leading vote-getter and was playing in his 18th and final All-Star Game, scored 10 points and had seven assists in 25 minutes of play.
