On a trading card, at least. Panini American, who does not make sandwiches, believe it or not, is an Italian card company that purchased Donruss a few years ago.
The NBA’s got an exclusive deal with them for trading cards, so the company decided to take advantage of the buzz around KD’s flag football performance in Stillwater. The Redskins need a quarterback — I mean, John Beck and Rex Grossman? — and we all saw KD toss four touchdown passes and run for another two. So why not?
Another question: How much would a KD Redskins card go for? Via Panini’s website:
And just to take our little project one more logical step, we asked Beckett Media Senior Market Analyst Rob Springs to speculate on the secondary-market value such Durant cards might have. His estimate: Between $150 and $200.
One more card after the jump:
I like how they used Brad Johnson’s old super-lame facemask for KD’s helmet. And we all know quarterbacks can’t be No. 35.
Then again, I guess we all know Kevin Durant couldn’t actually be a real quarterback either.
