Stephen Curry’s mouthguards are the accessory that most fans associate with the sharp-shooting point guard. He can be seen routinely chewing on his mouthpiece during stoppages of play during NBA games.

One lucky Golden State Warriors fan found one of these mouthguards after a road gaeme this season. He managed to sell this strange collectors’ item for $3,190 at auction on Sunday morning.

SCP Auctions handled the sale of the mouthpiece. Earlier this summer, Dan Imler, SCP’s vice president, expected the mouthguard to sell for at least $5,000.

There is no mistaking the authenticity of the mouthpiece, as it bears Curry’s name and number along with the team logo. The auction even came with a carrying case that bears the superstar’s name found near the court.

Apparently, there is a market for these sorts of odd items. In the same auction, Julius Erving’s notes from his 1981 MVP speech and shoes from his final game were sold for $10,000 and $8,562 respectively.

Also present in the odd lot was a basketball stanchion used at the Great Western Forum for Los Angeles Lakers games from the late 80s to early 90s. The backboard and parts sold for a staggering $21,221.

Late in the NBA Finals, the two-time MVP threw his mouthguard in frustration at a foul call. He apologised after realizing that he accidentally hit a fan with the plastic piece. The fan returned the projectile to Curry without any incident.

But, if that fan woke up and saw this today, I bet that he would be pretty sore about it. People will pay good money for crazy things.

If you can get more than $3,000 for a random mouthpiece from a meaningless road game, then how much could someone get for that specific mouthguard in a historic NBA Finals performance?

He probably should have gotten it signed.
