WEST BERLIN, N.J. (AP) - Two NBA championship rings that Kobe Bryant gave to his parents each sold for more than $100,000 at an auction that supported one of his charities.

Goldin Auctions said six items of Bryant memorabilia sold for a combined $433,531 in the monthlong auction that closed early Saturday morning.

A 2000 Lakers championship ring gifted by Bryant to his father, Joe, sold for $174,184. A ring given to his mother, Pamela, from the same championship season went for $108,153.

Bryant had filed a suit against the auction company, saying his mother didn't have the right to sell the items. A settlement was reached last month allowing six items to be auctioned after the five-time NBA champion's parents apologized to their son and thanked him for his financial support.

The other items included Bryant's 2000 NBA All-Star game ring, which sold for $55,597, two game-worn uniforms from high school and a medallion and ribbon from the 1996 Magic's Roundball Classic.

As part of the sale, Goldin Auctions is donating $62,565 to The Bully Project, a Kobe Bryant supported charity.

The highest-priced item that wasn't from the Bryant collection was a bat used by Jackie Robinson during his 1949 MVP season that sold for $159,867.

In all, Goldin Auctions sold more than $2.4 million worth of memorabilia in the 1,150 lot auction.
