San Francisco – March 24, 2016 – NBA champion and Golden State Warriors MVP point guard Stephen Curry met his wax double today when Madame Tussauds San Francisco joined the star athlete to reveal his new wax figure at the Marriott City Center in Oakland.
The figure immortalizes the 28-year-old athlete dribbling, sporting his Golden State Warriors jersey with the number 30 in honor of his father, who wore that number during his own basketball career. The figure features Curry’s four tattoos: his wife’s initial on his ring finger, the initials ‘TCC’ (Trust, Commitment and Care) and the number 30 on the inside of his left wrist, and Hebrew writing on the inside of his right wrist, which translates to “Love never fails.”
Curry’s wax figure took a team of artists and sculptors nearly four months to create at an estimated cost of $350,000. The process involved taking 250 measurements of the towering athlete to capture his exact replica.
Curry’s figure will have a permanent position at the Madame Tussauds Fisherman’s Wharf location. Beginning March 25 through July 1, 2016, visitors who show their Warriors app at the attraction will receive 50 percent off admission or two for one.
