Panini Authentic exclusive signer Kyrie Irving is the latest member of the NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers committed to sign championship memorabilia as the company revealed his lineup of items on Thursday.
The first four pieces in the Panini Authentic Kyrie Championship Collection were teased by the memorabilia division of the NBA’s exclusive card-maker and none costs more than $400.
He’s played a decade in the NBA for four teams but now that he’s got an NBA championship there’s one member of the Cleveland Cavaliers who just might have one of the rarer — and dare we say hotter — basketball cards of the bunch?
Ok, maybe not — but maybe J.R. Smith‘s missing shirt might spark interest in his memorabilia cards?
Again, maybe not, but it’s a fun thought.
He told the world that he was coming home in the pages of Sports Illustrated and now that he’s accomplished his goal of landing Cleveland its first championship since 1964 it makes the most sense to find himself on the cover of the long-running magazine once again.
Not since his debut as “The Chosen One” has there been such a potentially coveted LeBron James SI cover.
The Cleveland Cavaliers’ first NBA championship means there will be plenty of new commemorative pieces to come — and two of the team’s biggest stars’ autographs will only come from Upper Deck Authenticated.
They are LeBron James and Kevin Love — and there are already six autographed items available.
