You can't own a piece of Stephen Curry for $5,000, but you can get close: You can have a hunk of plastic doused in his DNA.

That's the minimum expected return for one of the Golden State Warriors point guard's mouthguards, which is being auctioned off by California-based SCP Auctions.

"Steph Curry has given more life to mouthguards than any player in history," said Dan Imler, the auction house's vice president. "The way he flips it in and out of his mouth has become part of watching him during a game." 

The company claims the mouthguard was obtained by a fan who picked it up off the floor near the Warriors bench in a game this season.

If it's really game-worn, expect it to be chewed up. "I just chew on it like crazy," Curry told Jimmy Kimmel in August of 2015. He said he goes through a new mouthguard every three or four games. "It kind of calms me down, especially when I'm at the free-throw line."

The auction will be held on August 3.

This isn't the first mouth fixture to be auctioned by SCP, who sold Muhammad Ali's mouthguard from his final bout at $6,700 in 2013.
