Stephen Curry launched his new NFT collection commemorating each of his 2,974 made 3-pointers in his record-breaking game last week against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
On Monday, he launched his “2974 Collection” at 2974SC.com. The site consists of a collection of nonfungible tokens featuring each of Stephen Curry’s 3-point shots.
Hand drawn by recent college graduate and artist Andrea McDonald, the sketches have a repeating “2974” print that replicates the memorable shot. Also included in the artwork are the date, location, digital signature, and a special moment associated with the shots made.
Each unique NFT cost $499, with Curry planning to donate 100% of it to the charity “Eat. Learn. Play”, the foundation he and his wife, Ayesha Curry, established back in 2019.
“I’m truly grateful to be able to share this moment with all of the fans, the entire Bay Area community, and everyone who has supported me throughout the years,” Curry stated.
Additionally, owners of the NFT will also receive another gift, with the help of Floyd Norman, the 86-year-old pioneer artist and the first black animator at Disney will create a two-storyboard animation in addition to the series.
The animation will feature two of Curry’s favorite 3-point shots. The first is from the 2018 Game 2 NBA Finals, where Curry hit his ninth 3-pointer, putting the Warriors in-lead 2-0 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The second is from his game match against the Oklahoma Thunders in 2016, sealing the game with a half-court shot echoing a loud “BANG” across the stadium.
“I’m honored that two incredibly talented artists, Floyd Norman and Andrea McDonald, have been able to add their creative touches to my career,” Curry said.
Celebrating an early Christmas, two hundred out of the 2974 NFTS will be given to the people who help Curry in his journey. Namely his school teachers, Warriors fans, Davidson University, coaches, neighborhood friends, mentors, Stephen’s SC30 team, teammates, rivals and, family.
On the other hand, all the sketches cost $499 except the #2974/2974 NFT, which has Steph’s record-breaking basket. This will be auctioned for 72 hours to be given to the highest bidder.
