After Kobe Bryant’s passing in January, the Lakers’ finals win made for an emotional victory, with fans everywhere celebrating his life and legacy even as they were celebrating their team’s effort. Having already dropped a sweet snakeskin ball in memory of the sports legend, Spalding is back at it again, this time with a limited edition release donning Bryant’s career colors.

This special Kobe Marbled Snake ball features a mamba snakeskin textured pattern beneath alternating white and black panels that the brand says are meant to represent the balance between “strength and weakness, physical and mental toughness, and #8 and #24.” What’s more, it bears an embossed Kobe Bryant signature to complement. Topped off with a purple and gold marble pattern unique to each individual ball (no two are alike), it makes for a fitting reminder of the icon’s unforgettable performance on the court. Available for MVP members starting November 11th, you can purchase the Kobe Marbled Snake for $25 from Spalding.

Purchase: $25
