Kobe Bryant fans – at least, those with some extra cash – will soon have the chance to purchase some items that belonged to the late NBA star.

Among them: Bryant’s full Los Angeles Lakers number 8 home uniform, his Los Angeles Lakers home number 24 jersey and his cement handprints from Grauman's Chinese Theater.

Julien’s Auctions announced Thursday that the objects will be up for sale as part of its annual sports auction.

Officials say Bryant's possessions were already being planned for auction when he, his daughter Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash last month.

Fans can view the items at Julien's location on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills from April 27-30. The auction will be held on April 30.
