It’s not a game-worn jersey, sneakers or autographed basketball — no the most expensive Steph Curry item ever is THIS piece of cardboard …
You’re looking at a 2009/10 Panini National Treasures “Century Gold” Steph Curry signed patch/autograph rookie card … and it just sold for $616,000 at auction!!!
The guys at Goldin Auctions facilitated the deal this week … and they say the cash it fetched now makes it the priciest piece of Curry memorabilia ever.
As for why … the card is insanely rare — it’s 1 of only 25 ever made, and its 9.5 grade gives it nearly a perfect 10 score for its edges, centering and signature.
The card also features a landmark on the patch — part of Curry’s number appears to be visible on the swatch — which makes the piece even MORE valuable to card enthusiasts.
Of course, the Curry piece is just the latest in the trading card world to explode in value … the past few months have brought INSANE prices among collectors.
Just a few days ago, Wayne Gretzky‘s rookie card sold for $1.3 MIL at auction … making it the most pricey hockey card ever.
And, a few weeks before that, Rob Kardashian himself pulled an ultra-rare Tom Brady card that could land a fortune at auction too!!
Yeah, if you’re looking for a new hobby during these last few months of quarantine … THIS IS IT!!!!
