It is called the “Holy Grail” of Brady’s rookie card. It shows a rookie quarterback wearing a Patriots uniform. Next to it is a mock stub ticket that details the basic information of Michigan products. Friday’s card is the 99th out of 100 printed in history.
The auction house wrote in its description of the Brady rookie card: “This card was purchased on eBay ten years ago and has been hidden in private collections ever since.”
Since last year, record sales are a testament to the growing market in the sports card and souvenir industry. Given that the last Super Bowl MVP still maintained good competition at the highest level, and will continue to add a legendary career in Tampa in the next few years, perhaps this is not the last time Brady rookie card broke the record again.
