|Kevin Durant 2007-2008 RC Rookie Cards on eBay
The 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:)
Durant appears on track to be one of the NBA's best scorers during his generation. His rookie cards have always traded
at a high value, and probably will always be collectible.
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)
