The ‘moon shoes’ Steph Curry wore as a shout out to NASA earlier this month have sold in a charity auction. After 113 bids were made, the final price was $58,100.
The shoes were specially made and each was signed by Curry, who made headlines when he jokingly made a comment about whether we’d ever set foot on the moon.
Wow! $58,100 raised for STEM programs in Bay Area school from the auction of the Curry 6 ‘Moon Landing’ game-worn shoe. Incredible impact on students and teachers! pic.twitter.com/hMR93sSlMq

A recently graded 1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig sold at auction for $45,099 late Sunday night. The card, part of a long-time one-owner collection, was graded 8 by SGC.
…and it looks like a couple more Gehrigs are going to be hitting the market later this winter (along with a bunch of other ’33 Goudeys after this collection was just purchased:

Also among recent big sellers via eBay was a PSA 9 1969-70 Topps Lew Alcindor rookie card, which sold via Best Offer for $41,000 and a 2007-08 Upper Deck Exquisite Kevin Durant three-color patch rated 9 by BGS which netted $38,000.
A pretty exciting discovery for those who love rare vintage hockey cards. A set of oversized cards distributed through a Toronto restaurant early in 1933 has some new–and famous–additions that have changed what we know about one of the most obscure pre-War hockey sets. Anson Whaley has the details here.
Condolences to the friends and family of Dale Carlson, known around the hobby as “The Kenner Kid”. The Cuyahoga Falls, OH resident was one of the foremost authorities on the Kenner Starting Lineup figures and cards that were issued for many years, starting in the 1980s.
Still active in the hobby up until his death on December 30, he was 61.
