Tom Brady rookie card sells for $3.1 million at auction, shattering previous record

Tom Brady just continues to put his name in the record books.

Winning six Super Bowls is one thing, as it’s hard to see anyone eclipsing that mark in the next few decades, aside from maybe Patrick Mahomes. Brady’s running out of room on his hands for all the rings he’s won, but that’s a good problem to have. And he’s not only the winningest quarterback in NFL history, in terms of Super Bowl victories, but he’s also set plenty of other milestones along the way as well.

One of them just happened, and while it’s the offseason, this particular record took place away from the gridiron, in a sense.

One of Brady’s autographed rookie cards — a 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket — recently sold for just over $3.1 million at a Lelands auction. It’s the most a football card ever fetched on the open market.

Is there anything Brady hasn’t accomplished? He’s even shown interest in cryptocurrency, and is launching an NFT company, so we wouldn’t be surprised if TB12Coin is in the cards.
