TOPLINE Alt Fund II, an investment fund managed by alternative asset platform Alt, announced Tuesday it purchased a 51% stake in a 2009 Stephen Curry National Treasures Rookie Logoman Autograph at a valuation price of $5.9 million, setting a record for the highest price ever paid for a trading card.

Key Facts

  • The Curry card is stamped as a 1/1 by Panini America Inc., meaning there is only one in existence.
  • It has been graded Mint 8, on a scale of 1 to 10, by Professional Sports Authenticators.
  • The autograph on the Curry card is rated as a Gem Mint 10, the highest grade possible, by the PSA grading service.

Crucial Quote

“Our data shows that Steph’s cards have increased 35% in value YTD—compare that to the S&P and you can see the outsize return potential.” Leore Avidar, Alt’s founder, said in a press release. “We’re anchoring Alt Fund II to this purchase and have built a thesis with this asset at its core.”
