Cobby’s shirt traveled to Washington has already been hung in a special area of the museum related to sports and its official presentation is expected in a few hours.
The move to the museum was not accidental, as Cobby and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, have donated more than $ 1 million to build it.
Coby Bryant lost his life in a plane crash in January 2020. In the accident that shocked the world, his daughter Gianna and seven other people lost their lives!
