A signed New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady trading card in the NFL was sold for $ 400,100 at an auction with PWCC Marketplace and eBay.
This is a new record for the most expensive modern trading card ever sold at a public auction, breaking a PWCC record just four days earlier than a Michael Jordan trading card for 1997 $ 350,100 went.
Soon Brady himself became known again, who reacted to his Instagram story with a good mood. After posting a screenshot of a Business Insider article on the auction, the Super Bowl champion quipped, "You know, I'm cleaning the basement today."
The mind breaks the sums that such a treasure chest of sports history would auctions.
It is unlikely that Brady will ever have any money, but if that is the case, it is a comfort to know that he can easily get a high price for his old merchandise and souvenirs.
"With Brady showing no signs of slowing and probably more Super Bowl championships on the horizon, his remarkable novice could have much more room to climb," writes David Seideman Forbes .
The card belonged to the former NFL Lineman and the self-described "Super Collector" Evan Mathis, who purchased them at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland. Last year he sold a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card in pristine condition for an impressive $ 2.88 million.
"I love where the hobby is and where it's going," Mathis told Seideman.
The news has also inspired football fans to bury their own memorabilia with fantasy football co-host Rodney Knuppel: "So, a Tom Brady rookie card sold in 6 digits? I have a Tom Brady rookie card! Can I have 6 digits? "
