Well, it was less than two months ago that I wrote about the record-breaking Tom Brady rookie card, and it did not take long for that record of $2.25M to be sacked. A similar card as the one that sold in April just sold; this example of the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket card, with Brady’s autograph, received a Mint 9 grade, with a perfect 10 for the signature grading by BSG. There are only seven cards in this condition to still exist out of the 100 cards released. The card had a starting bid of $750K, and after receiving 32 bids, it sold for $3.1M – another new record for the champ!
On a side note, the football Brady threw to complete his first career touchdown pass sold at the same auction for $429K. Brady threw the football to Terry Glenn, who then threw it into the stands – the lucky person who caught the ball was the consignor.
