A December joke from Stephen Curry about not believing that people have landed on the moon has come full circle.

The Golden State Warriors guard wore "Moon Landing" versions of the Under Armour Curry 6s during a Jan. 3 game against the Houston Rockets. The autographed pair was auctioned off and sold for $58,100, according to Darren Rovell of Action Network:
