Someone buys Stephen Curry’s mouthguard for $3,190 Sports auction draws buyers and sellers of all kinds of memorabilia

A mouthguard that was picked up by a fan at a Golden State Warriors road game in December sold for $3,190 in an auction by California-based SCP Auctions on Sunday.

The game-chewed mouthguard and carrying case are both detailed with his name.

In a recent story, ESPN’s Darren Rovell mentioned that Curry told late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel in March that he changes his mouthguard every three to four games.

“I just chew on it like crazy,” Curry told Kimmel. “It kind of calms me down, especially when I’m at the free throw line.”

Other items sold in the auction that began on Aug 3:

  • Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius “Dr. J” Irving’s handwritten notes from his 1981 MVP award acceptance speech sold for $10,010.
  • The winning bid for the entire basket stanchion used at the Great Western Forum for Los Angeles Lakers games from 1988 to 1994 was $21,221.
  • A headband worn by Los Angeles Lakers center Wilt Chamberlain from the early 1970s brought in $4,141. A Chamberlain warm-up from the same time period sold for $55,145, while a rare program and ticket from Chamberlain’s 100-point game with the Philadelphia Warriors collected $19,031 and $18,192, respectively.
  • Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird’s game-used warm-ups from Indiana State University sold for $25,063.
  • Chicago Bull Dwyane Wade’s Final Four ring from his days at Marquette University sold for $9,418.

Auctioned athlete memorabilia is often collected in very unconventional ways. Check out a few more random items from sports figures that fans cashed in on:

  • Former Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III dislocated his ankle in week two of the 2014 NFL season and his teammates signed his cast. A diehard Redskins fan picked it up for $1,152.
  • Who knew Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz’s beard trimmings could be worth $10,877? After the end of the 2013 Major League Baseball season, Ortiz shaved his playoff beard and auctioned it off with the proceeds going to the Movember Foundation.
