Kevin Durant Topps All American vs. Blake Griffin Panini Next Day Signature
Which you would rather own?
I ask this question, not for future resale value, but for personal collection reasons.
In this corner:
Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder small forward. Future perennial All-Star, scoring champion, possible league MVP, and NBA champion. First known autograph from a major licensed trading card company, Topps, pictured in his McDonald’s All American uniform. Only two specimens ever recorded online. PSA 9 graded version sold for $2,500.
In the other corner:
Blake Griffin, Los Angles Clippers power forward. Future perennial All-Star, rebounding champion, possible league MVP and runaway candidate for Rookie of the Year. Rarest, most sought-after on card autograph from Panini, pictured in his road red Clippers uniform. Rumored to be 10 in existence, but not confirmed. Prices realized at $2,500 and $3,000 in January and February 2011.
