Panini HRX Video Autographed Trading Cards (Kobe, Durant, Griffin, Wall)

Panini is changing the face of the sports cards hobby by recently releasing the world's first video trading cards.
As the name implies, these cards include a small screen that can play up to 30 minutes worth of video footage of the player indicated on the card.

The cards are officially called as the Panini HRX (Highlight Reel Xperience) trading cards with the first batch featuring four of basketball's top athletes (Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, John Wall and slam-dunk champion Blake Griffin) plastered across them.

They are randomly inserted in packs of 2010-11 Totally Certified Basketball.

The cards feature 2GBs of internal storage while a micro-USB port on the side will be used for charging and connecting to standard USB cables which means fans can even add their own videos!

Cool eh?

What's even cooler is that there will be autographed versions of the cards as well. The print run for the regular video cards is 40 for each player and 10 for the autographed ones. There's also a special gold version for each player that is a 1/1.

Check out the autographed Panini HRX video cards below:

Mind you, these are not cheap.

The first Kobe Bryant autographed HRX card sold for $1,000 at eBay. The first Blake Griffin closed at $862.50. The first Kevin Durant autographed version brought more than $500 and a Griffin unsigned copy generated $400.

The Bryant Autographed Gold 1/1 was recently sold for $2,000.
