Look: Tom Brady rookie card fetches over $500K at auction

It seems like forever since Tom Brady was a rookie, and maybe that’s why his memorabilia continues to increase in value with each passing year.

Brady has already won six Super Bowls since entering the league in 2000, and at 43 years of age, he’s only one win away from winning another title in February.

There’s a lot of debate about whether or not Brady’s the greatest quarterback to have ever played the game, given that he’s played on some excellent teams, with one of the smartest head coaches in Bill Belichick. One thing’s for sure, though, as numbers never lie: He’s the most accomplished quarterback, with more Super Bowl rings than he can fit on one hand.

And that’s why there’s so much interest in his memorabilia. Just recently, a rookie card from the 2000 Playoff Contenders series, sold for $555,988 at the popular PWCC Marketplace.

For that price, we’d prefer a house, or a car, or a house and a car, but some people have far too much disposable income to spend, so they have no problem opening up their checkbook for a piece of cardboard.
