You can buy Steph Curry’s game-used mouthguard

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Two-time MVP Steph Curry is one of the most popular athletes in the world, and now fans have the opportunity to own a piece of Curry memorabilia that is…well, it’s kind of gross. Sure, anyone can get an autograph, but how many people can say they own one of Curry’s game-used mouthguards that he constantly chews on? Soon, that could be you!

According to ESPN, an online sports auction will soon include one of Curry’s game-used mouthguards…

SCP Auctions, which is based in California, said it obtained the mouthguard from a fan who picked it up off the floor near the Golden State Warriors bench after a game this season.

“Steph Curry has given more life to mouthguards than any player in history,” said Dan Imler, vice president of the auction house. “The way he flips it in and out of his mouth has become part of watching him during a game.”

Imler expects the mouthguard to sell for at least $5,000.

The mouthguard is marked with the Warriors logo and Curry’s name and number. It was consigned to the auction company with a case labeled “CURRY.”

A Warriors spokesperson wouldn’t comment on the auction.
