You remember that mask, the one that found its way onto the face of Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant in February in March? Per Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com, that piece of headgear -- brought about by a broken nose in the All-Star Game -- fetched $67,100 in an auction for the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, an organization that is trying to eradicate homelessness in Los Angeles.

What a perfect excuse to take a photographic trip down KobeMask lane...
