30 Hottest Kevin Durant Cards

30 Hottest Kevin Durant Cards

Kevin Durant is a scoring machine. Since the Sonics moved to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder, he has been the undeniable face of the franchise and helped made them a perennial contender. Although he has a solid supporting cast that includes Russell Westbrook, the success of the franchise rests on Durant. No pressure. And while Kevin Durant cards are some of the top-sellers in basketball, he has yet to make the transition to the hobby's ultra-elite. Superstar, sure. But he's not quite in the same league as MJ, LeBron and Kobe.

The basketball card landscape looked a lot different when Durant debuted in 2007-08. Upper Deck and Topps were both making NBA cards while Panini was still based largely out of Europe. With two companies producing cards at the time, Durant has a lot of rookie cards. For low-end options, Topps has more cards. However, Upper Deck dominates when it comes to high-end rookie cards and early inserts.

When Durant started his third year in 2009-10, things changed dramatically. Upper Deck and Topps were out of making NBA cards and Panini was in. After being named a company spokesman in 2011, Durant has become a focal point for the card maker. The result has been a consistent flow of autographs and other high-end cards.

Still young, Durant has the opportunity to do even bigger things in the NBA. The biggest thing holding him back in the eyes of the hobby, though, is an NBA Championship. He's got the Thunder close, but second place  rarely makes you a legend. But with the raw talent he possesses, it's hard to see a future that doesn't include Durant with a ring or two (or more) one day.

Below is a real-time look at the most-watched Kevin Durant cards currently up for auction on eBay. They may not be the most valuable cards, but it does serve as a good indication as to what's drawing the most interest. You can also bet that rare versions of key cards will pop up when they're listed, so this is a good starting point to track specific cards.
