Prior to winning NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant had a stellar career at Lower Merion High School in the Philadelphia suburbs. Now, nearly three decades later, around 22 hours of Bryant’s high school footage will be auctioned off by Profiles in History in Calabasas, California and is expected to go for between $250,000 and $350,000.

The clips of Bryant come from Stu Ross, who produced “High School Sports Show.” The program was a syndicated weekly television series that aired in 35 cities and showcased some of the best athlets from around the country. The footage contains interviews and games that Bryant participated in throughout his time at Lower Merion.

Bryant took the nation by storm as a high school star. During his senior season at Lower Merion, he put together averages of 30.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 4.0 steals, and 3.8 blocks, and led the Aces to a 31-3 record. Bryant finished off his high school career as Southeastern Pennsylvania’s all-time leading scorer with 2,883 points. In doing so, Bryant surpassed area legends like Wilt Chamberlain and Lionel Simmons.

Over the years, Ross has accumulated footage of more than 700 athletes during their high school days, including LeBron James, Wayne Gretzky, Tom Brady, Michael Phelps, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony.
