New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of the most popular and best-selling players in the sports memorabilia and cards market. That’s not much of a surprise because he’s a four-time Super Bowl champion and arguably the best quarterback in NFL history.
Brady’s excellent performance in a Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns — his first game after serving a four-game Deflategate suspension — has made him an even hotter commodity among sports card collectors. It’s one of the reasons why a rare rookie card of Brady graded a Pristine 10 by Beckett went for an insanely high price in a recent eBay auction. The card was a 0.5 on the surface subgrade away from earning a perfect grade.
There are just 11 other cards of 2000 SP Authentic #118 Tom Brady — one of the most sought after rookie cards of the Patriots legend — graded a Pristine 10 by Beckett. This helps makes it a very valuable item.
