Collectibles associated with NBA star Stephen Curry continue to fetch top prices.
A jersey worn by the Golden State Warriors guard in Game 1 of the NBA Finals last month sold for $203,330 on the NBA Auctions website. The auction attracted 101 bids.
In the Game 1 loss to the Boston Celtics on June 2, Curry hit six 3-pointers in the first quarter. This performance broke a record for most 3-pointers scored during a quarter in an NBA Finals game.
Curry won Finals MVP as the Warriors defeated the Celtics in six games.
The amount paid for Curry’s jersey still paled in comparison to the record $3.69 million paid for a jersey worn by Kobe Bryant in his rookie season.
Other Curry collectibles that have recently sold for high prices include a Panini Absolute Memorabilia Signature Materials 2009 signed Logoman Curry Rookie card that sold for $492,000; a 2009 Playoff National Treasures Curry rookie patch autograph that sold for $720,000; and a Curry jersey worn in Game 1 of the 2016 NBA Finals for $343,200.
One reason the value of collectibles associated with Curry has increased recently is because he became one of only 10 players in NBA history to win a Finals MVP award and two NBA MVPs won. He also broke the NBA record for career 3-pointers set last December.
