Lelands left the first lot in its Late Summer Classic Auction open to some mystery after it launched late last month. It’s not a high-end card or piece of memorabilia, but the GOAT is now out of the bag.
The company announced Tuesday that it would be offering the chance to bid on a meet and greet with Tom Brady with proceeds going to charity.
The date and location will be announced before the final week of the auction, which closes September 25. While the winner will undoubtedly come away with Brady autographs, no outside memorabilia will be signed. The high bidder will also receive two field passes and two tickets to the Buccaneers vs. Giants game on Monday, November 22, 2021 in Tampa. .
All proceeds from the experience will benefit “This Too Shall Pass,” which was created to fundraise for nonprofits impacted by the pandemic. The experience — being made possible by Whipe Fundraising — cannot be resold, re-auctioned or transferred. Travel and accommodations are not included.
Among other headline items up for bid is the “Holy Grail” of Brady football cards – a 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Autograph (current bid $327,432) and a 2009 National Treasures #206 Stephen Curry RPA (current bid $132,685).
Additional auction highlights include other high-end Brady cards, a 2017 Patriots Super Bowl LI player ring, a Bear Bryant personally worn houndstooth hat and a pair of LeBron James shoes worn in the 2017 Eastern Conference Playoffs that were gifted to teammate Kyrie Irving.
