Good to know

A collectible card of football superstar Tom Brady has fetched a record amount in an auction. A well-known collector and fan of the most successful quarterback in NFL history paid $1.32 million for a signed edition from the year 2000, when Brady was a rookie for the New England Patriots, in an online auction.

In February, Brady won his sixth Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the defending champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. The previous football card record for popular North American players was held by a newer edition featuring Kansas City’s quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, which sold for $861,000 (722,000 euros).

The record price is held by a 1952 card of baseball player Mickey Mantle from the New York Yankees, which a businessman acquired in January for $5.2 million.

I have been collecting memorabilia for half of my life. I started very small with a few trading cards and since then I am more and more interested in the subject. I read a lot in Facebook groups, collect especially Jordan memorabilia. I'm happy if you like my content.
