Tom Brady proclaims himself the greatest quarterback of all-time in an inscription on the jersey he wore in the last regular season game of Tampa Bay’s 2020-21 championship season. The autographed jersey—complete with captain’s patch—is at Goldin Auctions.
The dark-colored Tampa Bay Bucs jersey was donned by Brady in a win over the Atlanta Falcons last January. Brady later signed his name vertically on the back, along with several inscriptions including “SB LV MVP” next to his name, a note to the jersey being game used, his stats for the day– and a one of a kind “G.O.A.T.” inscription. It’s believed to be the only time he has ever inscribed that moniker on a game used jersey.
It carries authentication from Brady’s memorabilia partner, Fanatics, along with Sports Investors, which photomatched it to game use.
As of Sunday afternoon, the high bid was $260,000 with the auction set to run through January 8.
Christmas morning is usually a happy occasion, but for Nash Cards in Mt. Juliet, TN, it was a rude awakening.
The Nashville area store became the latest victim in an ongoing rash of burglaries at hobby shops. A thief driving a late model truck, parked it around midnight on Christmas Eve, then walked up to the store front and smashed his way into the store.

Taken in the burglary were at least 35 boxes of current era products including a pair of 2020-21 National Treasures Basketball, a box of 2019 National Treasures Football; five 2014-15 Court Kings Basketball Rookie Edition, a case of 2020-21 Mosaic Basketball blasters and 14 2020-21 Mosaic Basketball cello boxes, among others. Store owner Chris Kelsey was still taking inventory on Sunday to determine if anything else was missing.
Collectable shareholders voted to accept a $780,000 offer for a 2009-10 National Treasures Steph Curry Rookie Patch Autograph card (BGS 9.5). That’s a fairly hefty profit for shareholders who bought in to the original IPO of $497,000 back in April. The purchase price equates to about $15.51 per share—a $5.51 per share profit over the original IPO price of $10.
The card has been trading on Collectable’s secondary market and closed Friday, Dec. 17, 2021 at $599,382 ($12.06/share).
The vote wasn’t a slam dunk, with only 62% voting to accept the offer, which was passed on to Collectable’s advisory committee, which voted 5-0 to accept the deal.
After a few seasons bouncing around the league, Packers backup quarterback Kurt Benkert finally got to be on an active NFL roster earlier this month and took a knee to close out a win. Last week, he got one of the best TTM autograph requests you’ll see.
