A piece of the floor paneling from Kobe Bryant’s final game at the Staples Center was auctioned for $179,100, according to the NBA auctions website.

The section was autographed by Bryant after the April 13 game, and was cut into four pieces measuring four feet by eight feet each.

The piece features a large number eight and was made specifically for the final game of Bryant’s 20-year career with the Lakers. 

The NBA held the auction to benefit the Los Angeles Lakers Youth Foundation, which helps provide underprivileged youth with education, health and sports resources.

Bryant scored 60 points in his last NBA game.
