    ADMIT ONE: A front row seat to the career of the Black Mamba

    Entry #12 submitted, whilst this may not be a true "highlight" it certainly is a key a point in his career when everything changed... I'm a believer that you can't tell the story of Kobe Bryant without this match being an important chapter. That's now 5/24 revealed... the 3 most recent will...

    ADMIT ONE: A front row seat to the career of the Black Mamba

    ADMIT ONE: A front row seat to the career of the Black Mamba

    Thanks all, I’m really excited about this project and can’t wait to get the next few in hand (I have another 3 incoming, touch wood should have them around the end of the month). I think the allure of this being a jigsaw piece to history makes it a really captivating hunt

    ADMIT ONE: A front row seat to the career of the Black Mamba
