Stephen Curry continues to win on and off the court. During his quest to put another NBA championship under his belt, a rare rookie card just hit the auction market for some big bucks.
Hypebeast reports that an autographed 2009 rookie card just hit the PWCC Marketplace this week with initial bidding surpassing $400,000. The 2009 National Treasures card is number 93 out of 99 and is expected to go for over $500,000 upon the end of the auction later this week.
A Prized Possession
“The single greatest investment collectors can make in a modern NBA player is their RPA,” is how PWCC Auctions described the rookie patch autograph card. “Given the reputation of National Treasures, this multicolor patch and deeply struck auto, and Steph’s sterling reputation on and off the court, this card presents an exciting opportunity to own a premier card of one of the NBA’s active legends.”
Currently, Curry and the Warriors are facing off against the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals, which leads experts in the trading card industry to believe is a huge indicator of the uptick in the value of the rare card.
Steph Curry With The Shot
As a three-time NBA champion, Curry is considered one of the best shooters in the game. During the latest matchup against the Celtics, the 34-year-old point guard scored 43 points within 41 minutes of Game 4 in the NBA Finals, thus pushing his team to tie the series at 2-2.
The prized autographed jersey patch rookie card is a rare and hot commodity, scoring an overall gem mint 9.5 grading from Beckett. It received a perfect 10 grading for the signature.
