‘Holy Grail’ Rare Tom Brady Rookie Card Sells for Record-Breaking $1.2 Million (PIC)
On the field isn’t the only place Tom Brady is setting records.
One of his rookie cards from the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket collection just sold for $1.2 million, which made it the highest-selling football card ever, PWCC Marketplace announced on Thursday.
“This is the best of the best, the Holy Grail,” says Jordan Gilroy, Lelands’s Director of Acquisitions.
The card, which is one of just 100 in existence, was purchased by longtime Brady fan James Parker.
“I lived in Boston for 10 years and so am a huge fan of Brady,” Parker said in a statement. “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.”
This sale happens one month after the future hall of fame QB won his seventh Super Bowl, this time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
