With the veteran minimum in the NBA at $2.6 million, this means that the cardboard version of Steph Curry could actually be worth more than the real NBA player.
Trading card values continue to be on the rise as just this year alone the record for the most expensive NBA trading card has been broken three times!
In March Luka Dončić’s rookie card sold for $4.6 million and in April Alt broke the record by purchasing a 2003 Exquisite Lebron James Rookie Patch Auto for $5.2 million.
Now, Alt is only in competition with itself having the fund that they manage break the previous record that was set by the company.
Alt is a platform that allows collectors to buy and trade cards much like people do with stocks and they currently manage Alt Fund II.
Leore Avidar, the owner who launched the company last year, also collects Kobe Bryant and LeBron James cards for himself.
“Our data shows that Steph’s cards have increased 35% in value YTD — compare that to the S&P and you can see the outsized return potential,” said Avidar following the most recent purchase. “We believe this card’s upside is tremendous and represents the best of the best of the entire sports card market. We’re anchoring Alt Fund II to this purchase and have built a thesis with this asset at its core.”
The new card will be stored in the company’s “Alt Vault” which currently holds over $50 million worth of trading cards.
To date, Alt now holds two of the most expensive trading cards in history in their hands.
