Another Tom Brady rookie card, another record

USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady may not be as old as Honus Wagner (Brady is getting there), but Brady’s rookie cards continue to make the coveted Honus Wagner trading card seem like old news.

Specifically, a 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket No. 144 Tom Brady Rookie Autograph card went for $3.1 million through Lelands, shattering the prior record of $2.25 million.

Before that, another Brady rookie card went for $1.32 million.

As Brady continues to play and continues to compete for championships, the value of those cards presumably will only increase. For now, someone with plenty of money to spare has a piece of cardboard for which he or she has forked over $3.1 million.

  1. You have to wonder how many of these rookie cards Tom & his family have squirrelled away just waiting to be quietly released to cash in on….not that he needs the money, but he’s probably sitting on a gold mine.

  2. Lol just wait a few years when the full extent of his cheating and game fixing by the NFL is known. These cards will be worthless.

  3. Sure would be nice if that $3.1 million went to another cause – like maybe food banks, to fight abuse, organizations fighting for equal rights, animal shelters,

  4. Imagine being Tom Brady. IF he ever needed or wants to increase something of value, he just needs to sign something.

  5. I was just going to say what bigbadbills said. Spot on comment and 100% accurate. Brady is the Barry Bonds and Lance Armstrong of football. A complete fraud and sham artist who will eventually be exposed when his dad goodell is gone.

    Maybe haters like you will be gone too with heart attack if he wins another championship.

    Organizations fighting equal rights? Who in 2021 is not equal?

  8. I guess we now know what the threshold is when someone has more money than they know what to do with.

    And just think, in those same few years the Bills will still have zero championships

  10. I can’t tell which is my best investment, a signed Brady jersey back in 2002, or dogecoin in 2019. Let’s call it a draw.
