A Quarter Million Dollar Tom Brady Rookie Card Sold On eBay
Tom Brady is arguably the greatest NFL player of all time. With a Super Bowl win earlier this year, Brady established himself as the greatest quarterback ever, but best NFL player can still be a debate (I guess).
But at this point, there's one thing you really can't argue about. The value of Tom Brady's rookie cards.
Over the last year, maybe year and a half, the prices of collectibles have exploded. Comic books, Star Wars toys, sports cards, and more have all had prices jump by 100%, 200%, and even 500% in some cases. With isolated collectibles jumping even more.
It feels like every week I see sports cards sell for over $200,000 on eBay. Most of the time, they're NBA players. But occasionally a baseball star like Mike Trout, or in this case, it's an NFL player. With NFL stars, it's not always Tom Brady though. Sometimes its Patrick Mahomes, sometimes Josh Allen. Honestly though, it doesn't really matter who it is, $200,000 is a lot of money.
So when you combine those two concepts, Tom Brady being the G.O.A.T. and sports cards selling for stupid money, it was bound to reach this type of level. Tom Brady had a rookie card go for over $251,000 last week on eBay.
MORE THAN $250,000! That's a quarter of a million dollars, for one card.
The sale was for a 2000 SP Authentic Tom Brady rookie card, serial numbered out of 1250. But beyond that, its graded at a Pristine 10. It is an extremely rare, extremely mint card, and based on recent sales, it's probably about the right price for it.
