Last week, they posted a story regarding nine current NBA players who are suing the trading card manufacturer Topps for not paying them the full amount they were promised for their autographs on certain cards.
Here is more on that story:
NBA star Tracy McGrady’s autograph is over 16x more valuable than fellow baller Deandre Jordan’s — this courtesy of a lawsuit filed against a trading card company.
Nine NBAers — McGrady, Jordan, Brandon Roy, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, D.J. Augustin, T.J. Ford, Antawn Jamison, Anthony Randolph and DeAndre Jordan — are suing Topps, claiming they were all only partially paid for their autograph deals.
The most interesting part … how much Topps paid per autograph.
McGrady — $50
Rose — $25
Roy — $18
Westbrook — $10
Jamison — $10
Ausgustin — $8
Randolph — $7
Ford — $6
Jordon — $3
All nine combined are suing for $300,000
The one positive that we learn from this story is that DeAndre Jordan has a little bit of catching up to do in terms of how much his autograph is worth. Three Dollars?
Hell, my autograph is at least worth $2 on the open market.
