History of My Curio Cards Collection
My Curio Cards is a collection of 30 digital trading cards created by 7 different artists. Each card depicts a variety of images that tend to have a meaning attached or hold some cultural value. Example images include Bitcoin, sculptures and landscapes. More importantly, the project has a strong claim as being the first-ever NFT art project, with a launch that took place on 9th May 2017 - 45 days before CryptoPunks. According to Quartz, between 111 and 2000 versions of each card have been created. Most investors try to acquire a complete set of all 30. A complete set of all 30 must include number 17b – which was a ‘misprint’ that was generated by mistake. The cards were created as modified ERC-20 tokens since the more commonly used ERC-721 standard hadn’t been developed when the collection was created. Were you dabbling in NFTs back in 2017? Because there are 3768 cards in wallets that have been inactive for more than 1000 days, so it might be worth checking.

Evaluating My Curio Cards Collection
2017 is akin to the stone age with regard to the NFT world. As a result, My Curio Cards was almost a proof of concept project for the whole idea of recording the ownership of digital artwork using blockchain technology. As a result of the project’s frontier position, there is a lot of sentimental attachment to these cards on the market.
According to Cryptoticker.io, in October 2021 a full set of My Curio Cards – including the 17b ‘misprint’ – sold in an auction at Christie’s for $1.2 million. The astronomical values that Curio Cards are now driving is partly due to the project’s age, and partly because the NFTs lay dormant until the 2021 NFT boom.
The Christie’s catalogue described them as a ‘convoluted and motley array of surrealist-tinged kitsch, anti-corporate/pro-decentralization satire, slapstick cartoons, high-minded abstraction and hijinks.’ The first full set sold for $300,000 in the early summer.
Once you remove the 1000 cards that have been burned for various reasons, there are now a total of 27,997 My Curio Cards in existence. With only 106 minted, Card #26 - a stylised piece of art called ‘Education’ - is the rarest. This is closely followed by Card #29 - depicting a photoshopped image of some apartments, aka ‘Passion’ - and Card #25 - another stylised drawing, titled ‘Passion’.
As an early NFT experiment, My Curio Cards predate the era when generative software would combine a long list of variables to produce unique images. It is the collection of a complete set that makes My Curio Cards valuable rather than the rarity of unique traits.
