It’s safe to say that Panini America made the most of its time with Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant during a business meeting in late December. In addition to filming the compelling “Simon Says” spot that launched last week in support of the company’s new exclusive long-term business relationship with Durant, company officials also conducted a rather fluid signing session with Durant in between takes that included past, present and future card sets and several new Panini Authentic items.

The 2013-14 NBA MVP was at his multi-tasking best that afternoon in Oklahoma City, effortlessly sashaying between his starring role on the court and signing for such releases as Court Kings Basketball, Totally Certified Basketball, Absolute Basketball and Revolution Basketball off the court. Among the new items Durant signed for Panini Authentic? Sunset Orange Oklahoma City Thunder alternate jerseys, two different University of Texas basketballs and two new photographs.

Four of the new items are limited to just 35 pieces each; the alternate jersey is an open-edition item. Check out the Panini Authentic website for additional information — and enjoy the gallery below that takes you behind the scenes on that late-December meeting.
