Default Kobe Bryant Signs 24 Boxes of Exquisite Collection

Kobe Bryant Signs 24 Boxes of Exquisite Collection

Upper Deck Spokesman Kobe Bryant wasn't at UD headquarters a few weeks ago just for handshakes and a company pep talk. The nine-time All Star also put his mark on the recently released 2006-07 Exquisite Collection Basketball.

Bryant signed 24 numbered boxes of Exquisite. His full signature—rarely seen these days—appears in silver on the black wooden boxes. Collectors will not know if they have a signed box until they open the outer shell.

"The 24 collectors who open these boxes are going to be getting something very rare and unique," says Chris Kollmeyer, associate basketball brand manager. "We are always looking to add new twists to our products and Kobe was more than willing to help us deliver a 'surprise' to the hobby. Kobe is a great partner as we work well as a team and are always looking to increase awareness of our athletes and Upper Deck products."
