Kevin Durant Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Kevin Durant

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


Kevin Durant rookie cards are among the most coveted in the hobby and interest increased when he made his move from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors. Kevin Durant cards and memorabilia represent an investment opportunity for collectors but the cost of entry keeps pushing higher.

Given the success he has already achieved, prices for Kevin Durant cards and autographs are a safe bet for continued improvement. It is also important to note that 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 rookie cards all feature on-card autographs and jersey patches. We also have an expanded look at the best KD rookies.

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