Kobe Bryant’s final game was epic, as he closed out his career with a monster 60-point performance. And while the Lakers went all out to give the NBA legend a fitting send-off, they also made a lot of money.

According to ESPN.com, those in attendance at Staples Center on Wednesday (April 13) spent a total of $1.2 million on merchandise, a single-day sales record for any arena in the world.

The previous record was set by Led Zeppelin, who sold $1 million worth of merchandise in London at the O2 Arena on Dec. 10, 2007, their first concert in three decades.

The Lakers rolled out high-end Kobe memorabilia, dubbed the “24 Collection”, created in partnership with AEG, Kobe Inc., his merchandise partner MainGate, and the Lakers.
