Steph market stays hot as jersey sells for $200K

The NBA Finals might be over, but Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is still putting up numbers.

Less than a month after his historic performance in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the jersey Curry wore during his record-setting first quarter sold for $203,330 in an astounding 101-bid war on NBA Auctions.

Curry drained six 3-pointers in the first quarter of Golden State's 120-108 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 on June 2, breaking a record for most 3-pointers made during one quarter in an NBA Finals game.

The $203,330 is not the record paid for an NBA jersey at auction, modern or vintage -- falling short of the $3.69 million record game-worn Kobe Bryant jersey from his rookie season.

But mere months after he became the NBA's all-time leading 3-point shooter, Curry's collectability is soaring, as it has for the better part of the past year.

In late May with collectables marketplace Goldin, a 1-of-1 2009 Panini Absolute Memorabilia Signature Materials autographed Logoman Curry rookie card sold for $492,000 with buyer's premium.

Last month, with PWCC Marketplace, a 2009 Playoff National Treasures Curry RPA (rookie patch autograph) numbered to 99 sold for $720,000; nine days later, with Goldin, a Curry jersey worn in Game 1 of the 2016 NBA Finals sold for $343,200 with buyer's premium.

A year ago, alternative investment group Alt purchased a majority stake in a 1-of-1 2009 Playoff National Treasures autographed Logoman Curry rookie card, valued at $5.9 million -- briefly making Curry's most sought-after debut card the most valuable sports card of all time, before a T206 Honus Wagner card sold in August for $6.606 million.

Although the sports card and collectables market has cooled recently, Curry is undeniably one of the most collectable athletes in sports. This year, he became one of only 10 players in NBA history to win two NBA MVPs and one Finals MVP awards.
