WEST BERLIN, N.J. (AP) — Two NBA championship rings that Kobe Bryant gave to his parents each sold for more than $100,000 at an auction that supported one of his charities.

Goldin Auctions said six items of Bryant’s memorabilia items sold for a combined $433,531 in the monthlong auction that closed early Saturday morning.

A 2000 Lakers championship ring gifted by Bryant to his father, Joe, sold for $174,184. A ring given to his mother, Pamela, from the same championship season went for $108,153.

Bryant had filed a suit against the auction company, saying his mother didn’t have the right to sell the items. A settlement was reached last month allowing six items to be auctioned.
