Kevin Durant 2007-2008 RC Rookie Cards on eBay
Durant appears on track to be one of the NBA’s best scorers during his generation. His rookie cards have always tradedThe Portland Trailblazers selected Greg Oden with the #1 pick over Kevin Duran – a decision they will probably regret for the rest of the franchise’s history. Topps signed Greg Oden to an exclusive deal – and Durant signed with Upper Deck, which is why he doesn’t have any Topps autograph cards. (A deal Topps probably regrets too:)
In an ESPN interview, Durant revealed that Twitter helped him understand that people are going to love you or hate you no matter how you play. He says the website made him tougher. Durant also has many tattoos, but his mom told him to keep them out of view in a basketball uniform.
Keep in mind that Durant has many parallel cards from the above sets, but this list should get you started with all the sets that contained his cards during his rookie year.
In 2011 Kevin Durant signed a deal with Panini America so his cards will be contained in all sets after 2011-12 Absolute. Any autograph memorabilia from Kevin Durant from that point forward should only be purchased from the Panini brand. (or it’s probably fake)
In the summer of 2016 Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors – joining one of the best teams in the NBA at the time.
