Stephen Curry is already respected as one of the top 5 shooters in the history of game, and when his career is all said and done, many will argue that he should be regarded as the best shooter of all time.

With his quick, effortless release and crafty ball handling, Curry helped accelerate the 3-point movement of today’s NBA game, and proved the off the dribble 3, or step back 3, can be utilized as a highly effective shot.

But the pioneer of the internet era “heat check” is not just a flashy shooter. Curry is a proven winner, and capable of leading a championship level team.
If you’re interested in acquiring one of Curry’s rookie cards we recommend considering one of the three below.

If you have money spend then Curry’s National Treasure card is for you.

With a print run of only 99, an on-card autograph and a large relic patch what more could collectors want?

Panini’s premium product also features a very nice design, and it doesn’t hurt that this card comes from the debut set of the National Treasures brand.

2009-2010 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Stephen Curry # 64

Another very expensive rookie, and highly valued by collectors the Exquisite rookie card features a print run of only 225, with a very clean design that gives plenty of space for the on-card autograph.

This would also be the last year of production for the Exquisite brand as Upper Deck would soon no longer have licensing rights for NBA cards.

What is a little confusing is that there is another Curry autograph card in the base set (#72, numbered to 225) that can be considered a rookie card as well.

For a slightly more affordable rookie card, the Curry’s Panini Classics RC is a great way to go.

With a print run of 499, there is still some exclusivity with owning the card, and the card still features an on-card signature along with a solid design.
