Quarterback Tom Brady’s New England Patriots rookie card continued to break its own record in latest auction sale.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady continues to win the offseason. Not only is virtually the whole band back together for the 2021 season, but his name on the card-selling market continues to be the most valuable in the NFL.
On Friday, Brady’s 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket #144 card sold for a record-breaking $2,252,855 million following 67 bids at the 2021 Lelands Spring Classic Auction. The record was previously held by the exact same card, which was sold last month for $1.32 million to FItbit CEO James Park.
Tom Brady’s New England Patriots rookie card continues to break records at the auction market
The rise in the selling price for this card was quite interesting. Out of 10, the card itself received an 8.5 grade and the autographed was graded with a 9. The card that sold for over $1 million last month received an 8-out-of-10 in quality and a 10-out-of-10 for autograph quality.
Prior to Brady’s sold card, the record for highest-selling NFL rookie card was set by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. That autographed card was sold for a rather cheap $861,000, when you consider how much the Brady cards have now sold for.
It comes as no shock that Brady’s value on the rookie card market is skyrocketing. In his age 43 season, Brady led the once laughingstock Tampa Bay Buccaneers to their second Super Bowl championship in franchise history in his very first year with the team. In his 10 trips to the big game, Brady has walked away with seven rings.
As if Brady did not already have enough bragging rights among his NFL colleagues, he can now say that his autographed rookie card sold for over $2 million. Like we said in the past, this is the cheapest autographed Brady memorabilia is going to get, especially if he wins his eighth Super Bowl next season.
