Kevin Durant saw his hobby stock rise during the 09/10 NBA season, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to the first round of the playoffs. Collectors interest in Durant has remained steady throughout the summer and a 2007/08 UD Black Auto RC 2/99 is currently one of the hottest basketball cards on eBay.
Expectations will be elevated for Durant in 2010/11 and at the very least, fans and collectors will expect a return trip to the playoffs. The NBA Western Conference appears to be weaker and the Thunder shape up to be one of the better teams if Durant continues to impress. He will also be one of the top picks in fantasy basketball leagues which will help improve his stature amongst fans of the game. While I don't expect the price for this UD Black Durant RC to reach the sellers previous asking price of $950.00, it will command a decent sum.
