Stephen Curry is the Epitome of Greatness

Through 13 NBA seasons, Stephen Curry is already one of the most decorated players of all time. Curry has three NBA titles under his belt, two NBA MVP awards, and is now a member of the NBA's 75th Anniversary Team, celebrating the top 75 players in league history. It's safe to say that Curry followed in his father's footsteps to NBA greatness, where he will be regarded as the greatest shooter of all time for years to come.

As one of the most decorated and exceptional players in league history, it's no wonder why Curry's rookie cards fetch such enormous value. Already a lock for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, Stephen Curry still has more to prove, with his sights on yet another NBA championship, which would instantly boost the already unprecedented value of his rookie cards.
