Kobe Bryant has been coined a hero by some, and a villain by many. However, no hero is perfect, and no villain is completely void of heroic intentions. We all live as both and what sets the great ones apart is how they use their inner villain to create something epic. It's living as a HeroVillain.
The HeroVillain channels fear, rejection, anger and doubt and turns them into strength, courage, power and determination. The Lakers legend handpicked the moments that illustrated how he lived his 20-year career as a HeroVillain. From the time Charlotte poured fuel on his fire to beating arch-rival Boston for a banner to becoming a Laker for life, Bryant presents an inside look at defining moments and tells the stories in his own words. It's a journey only No. 24 is qualified to tell.
This exclusive Panini America set features two distinct 21-card HeroVillain packs, one featuring Kobe's most inspiring moments and his farewell, the other recapping those moments in his own words. Also included is a five-card pack, giving collectors a chance at eye-catching Red MVP, Blue O'Brien Trophy, Purple Eight, Gold Twenty Four and Rare Black Mamba parallels. Adding to the beauty of this remarkable collection is the opportunity to find Kobe's signature via a HeroVillain 21-card autograph set.
