Tom Brady 2000 Contenders Championship Ticket Autograph Sells for Record $1.32 Million
Not that Tom Brady needs more records attached to his name, but it has happened. This time it’s the record for the most every paid for a football card. A 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket Tom Brady Autograph fetched $1.32 million.
The new owner is James Park, CEO and co-founder of FitBit. “I lived in Boston for 10 years and so am a huge fan of Brady. The last Super Bowl win was just a mind-blowing accomplishment. I’ve also had a love of collecting cards since I was a kid,” he said in a statement put out by PWCC Marketplace on an Instagram post announcing the sale.
PWCC brokered the private sale.
Graded by BGS as a NM-MT 8, the Brady card has subgrades of 10 for centering, 8.5 for surface, 8 for edges and 7.5 for corners. It’s a parallel version of Brady’s most valuable Rookie Card and has 100 numbered copies.
The previous record for the most expensive football card ever was set just over a month ago when a BGS 9 2017 Panini National Treasures Black Patrick Mahomes Rookie Patch Autograph went for $840,000. That record was set in a Goldin Auctions sale.
This new record price might not last long, though. Another copy of the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket Tom Brady is currently up for auction at Lelands. This copy is graded a BGS 8.5. Bidding is over $740,000 (before buyer’s premium) with the auction closing on April 2.
