Radar is told a digital auction is gearing up to drop a Nike Zoom VII sneaker signed by the longtime Los Angeles Laker — but that's not all.

We've learned the package also includes one of the three 18K rose gold Black Mamba Hublot Watches ever designed and signed by Kobe, as well as a "custom curated digital artwork designed by New York City-based artist Moshé Douglas."

If you're the ultimate Kobe fan, hopefully, you have some extra cash lying around because they are hoping to pull in a lot of money with his package.

Radar is told the opening bid will start at $1,008,240, with portions of the sale price going to Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles, a charity that Kobe was heavily involved in during his career.

The watch — which is just one of three ever designed and signed by Kobe in 2013 — in itself is a sight to see.

Its extravagant features include "a manual winding brushed movement, 27 jewels, monometallic balance rotating in a one-minute tourbillon carriage, and an 18k rose gold and titanium case."

With a "ceramic bezel, skeletonized brushed dial, subsidiary dials for the chronograph and 30-minute registers," Kobe's signature will never fade because it's secured by a "sapphire crystal back."

Kobe tragically died in January 2020 after the helicopter he was in crashed and burst into flames. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, was also killed in the accident, as were seven others.

Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa and three other daughters — Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 2.
