It’s not the Championship Ticket version numbered to 100, but another record-setting sale of a Tom Brady 2000 Playoff Contenders autograph card is in the works.
Heritage Auctions is offering a PSA 10 Rookie Ticket auto in its current catalog and bidding has already reached $140,000 ($168,000 with the buyer’s premium factored in). It’s already the most ever paid for that version of Brady’s most popular rookie card.
In January, a Championship Ticket version of Brady’s Contenders rookie, one of only 100 issued, generated national headlines when it sold for $400,100. The unnumbered Rookie Ticket autographs are more plentiful but prices are climbing at a rapid pace. The last PSA 10 version offered at auction sold on eBay in January for $110,000. Another sold last year for $93,100. Only 14 Rookie Ticket autographs have been rated 10 (Gem Mint) by PSA.
The card is part of the current Heritage catalog with bidding set to continue through Thursday, April 18.
