A jersey worn by Steph Curry during one of the most prolific shooting stretches in NBA history is up for auction—and the proceeds are going to charity.
MeiGray and the Golden State Warriors are offering the City Edition jersey through the NBA Auctions platform. It’s part of a larger auction of team memorabilia that will benefit the Warriors Community Foundation’s annual grantmaking program to support educational equity for Bay Area youth.
Curry wore the navy blue “Oakland” jersey during the Warriors’ 110-107 home loss to the Washington Wizards on April 9 of last season. He played 34 minutes that night, scoring 32 points, part of an 11-game stretch during that month in which Curry scored at least 30 points in each game, breaking Kobe Bryant’s record for a player age 33 or older. Curry also connected on 78 three-pointers during that span, breaking the all-time NBA record for an 11-game period.
“I’ve seen Kobe Bryant, early in his career had a stretch where he went nuts,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said at the time. “And obviously Michael Jordan add some stretches where he just scored like crazy. But, obviously, nobody’s ever shot the ball like this in the history of the game. And even by Steph’s own lofty standards, this is above and beyond.”
The jersey is registered into the NBA and MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program and as of Monday afternoon, carried a high bid of over $26,000. Bidding is scheduled to end on January 6 on the NBA Auctions website.
A separate section of auction items on another website used by the Warriors Community Foundation includes signed jerseys from Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and others as well as a team-signed ball from the current season.
