It doesn’t get much more personal than this. Or gross, depending on your point of view.
As the on court celebration of the Golden State Warriors’ four-game sweep of Cleveland in the NBA Finals wound to a close, Steph Curry tossed his mouth guard toward a fan at Quicken Loans Arena. Now, it’s coming up for sale.
SCP Auctions will offer it in its upcoming auction where it could bring more than the cost of a root canal.
Perhaps no “game used” item is more synonymous with Curry, who always seems to be fiddling with his rubberized tooth protector. In 2016, SCP sold another one Curry had famously tossed in frustration during a regular season road game. It sold for a little over $3,000 but one used in the clinching game could fetch a lot more.
This one comes with some iron clad provenance. A fan seated behind the consignor—who works in law enforcement—caught the toss on video and shared it with him.
Bidding will open July 26 and run through August 11, which means if you’re at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland, it’s coming back “home” and you might be able to get a peek at it.
