Kevin Durant

Date of Birth: 9/30/1988
Rookie Card Year: 2007-08
Investment Rating: 9.0


Overview

Kevin Durant cards are among the most coveted in the hobby. He is an elite star who will help carry the NBA and basketball collecting into its next phase. Although he is one of the youngest top-level talents, Durant is already a seasoned veteran as far as NBA experience. He has proven that even small-market teams can compete, both on the court and with collectors. The Oklahoma City Thunder have a fierce following and Durant is at the center of their fanbase. Durant has even helped other players, like Russell Westbrook, develop into strong collecting options.

With his relatively young age and almost limitless potential, Kevin Durant cards and memorabilia represent a great investment opportunity for collectors. During the past few playoff runs, Kevin Durant cards have reached impressive values before coming down slightly during the off-season. He is primed to compete for titles for the foreseeable future.

Given the early success he has already achieved, prices for Kevin Durant cards and autographs will continue to increase. The only thing that keeps him from the collecting level of players like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James is global awareness. He also seems to lack a killer instinct that helps draw fans and collectors. If Thunder superstar can grab a title, it will open the ceiling on where the value of Kevin Durant cards could go.

Durant has an exclusive autograph deal with Panini. However, when he entered the league in 2007, Durant had an agreement with Upper Deck. Those are two great places to look for authentic autographs and memorabilia.

Durant has a total of 32 true rookie cards, which fall into all price ranges. The top three Kevin Durant cards all feature on-card autographs and jersey patches.

Top Kevin Durant Rookie Cards

2007-08 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Kevin Durant RC #94 Autographed Jersey #/99

2007 08 Exquisite Kevin Durant Image

Anytime a player has an Exquisite rookie card, it is normally their top card. Kevin Durant is no exception. Numbered to 99, it is the top option for any Durant collector. The card is further highlighted by an on-card autograph and jersey swatch. Although it is unfortunate Seattle lost their franchise to Oklahoma City, the team colors are unlikely to be missed.

2007-08 SP Authentic Kevin Durant RC #152 Autographed Jersey #/299

2007 08 SP Authentic Kevin Durant Image

The patch is a little smaller and the card is numbered to 299 but the SP Authentic card is still hotly pursued by collectors. Due to the higher print run, they are some of the most widely traded high-end Durant rookies.

2007-08 UD Black Kevin Durant RC #106 Autographed Jersey  #/99

2007 08 UD Black Kevin Durant Image

The UD Black card features a huge swatch that spells out 2007 and is also numbered to 99. Understandably the color scheme is heavy on black and the on-card autographed is signed in gold, which contrasts nicely.

  1. Im selling my Dennis Johnson Card when he was on the celtics from 1989/1990 Fleer #9. I was lucky to have it because all the cards are all out of stock. Im selling it for $150.00

  2. I have a Thunder Book Bus bookmark autographed by Kevin Durant…how much would something like that go for?
