NBA Players Sue Over Being Traded

8/28/2009 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
