Recently, hip hop icon Snoop Dogg, as a longtime Los Angeles Lakers fan, participated in a card-pulling segment in collaboration with Whistle Sports hosted DJ Skee. The California rapper couldn’t believe his eyes when DJ Skee revealed to him a gold chrome PSA 10 rookie card of the late Kobe Bryant.
The rookie features a young Kobe Bryant playing in his rookie campaign back in the 1996-97 season and is worth over $30K today.
