Tom Brady Rookie Cards Heating Up

Collectors are jumping back on the Brady bandwagon.  With the championship round looming, bidders on eBay made Tom Brady rookie cards among the most popular cards sold last week.

In fact, Brady cards accounted for three of the top five football cards sold.

Brady’s 2000 Playoff Contenders rookie card remains the most popular.  A BGS 9.5 copy sold for a penny under $5,000 on Saturday, the day Brady threw six TD passes, leading the New England Patriots past the Denver Broncos and into the AFC title game.   An 8.5 version brought $3,925 that same day.

A Championship Rookie Refractor, graded 8.5, sold for $4,051.

The 34-year-old Brady already owns three Super Bowl rings and may be closing in on a fourth.  He’s been the game’s MVP twice.

Collectors who believed in Aaron Rodgers won’t see him again until next season, but not before they forked over some major cash.  A redemption card for a 2011 Topps Supreme triple auto featuring the autographs of Rodgers, Bart Starr and Brett Favre, numbered to 10, sold for $4,999, while a 2005 SP Authentic Gold Letter Patch Rodgers autographed card, numbered to 25, sold for $4,727 after attracting 28 bids.
