Goldin Auctions is partnering with the New England Patriots to auction a collection of 30 game-worn jerseys from several different decades and has them up for sale as part of the company’s latest auction.
Two of the jerseys date to the 1971 season while the rest are primarily from the last 20 years, including those worn by Kevin Faulk, Logan Mankins and Chandler Jones in game action. Each comes with a letter of authenticity from the Patriots.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to partner with the Patriots to auction this collection of game-worn jerseys that tells the storied history of this franchise,” said Goldin Auctions Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin. “Many of the jerseys come from the Brady–Belichick era, regarded as one of sports’ longest and most dominant dynasties.
The auction includes several thousand lots and the big money is expected to go to marquee cards featuring some modern era greats. One of the 99 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite LeBron James Rookie Patch Autograph cards (#32/99) graded BGS 8.5/10 has already pushed past $600,000 in early bidding.
A 2000 Tom Brady Championship Ticket Autograph card—the first in a print run of 100—is also included in the auction. Graded BGS 7/9, it was sitting at $220,000 as of Wednesday afternoon with bidding set to run through early October.
There’s also a PSA 10 Michael Jordan 1986-87 Fleer rookie and a 2003-04 UD Exquisite Jordan patch card (#029/100) graded BGS 9.5/10 that have both pushed past the six-figure mark. A PSA 10 copy of the 2002-03 Panini Mega Craques Cristiano Ronaldo rookie card is expected to bring a big price as well.
“In addition to our perennial big-ticket items like LeBron and Brady, we’re also continuing to also see huge interest in soccer, making it the hobby’s fastest growing area by popularity, and we’re excited to see the bids come in for the Ronaldo rookie card,” Goldin stated.
The auction features a 2010 Bowman Platinum Prospects Mike Trout SuperFractor (PSA 9), a 2016 Panini gold Prizm Patrick Mahomes rookie card (BGS 9.5), a 2018-19 Flawless Luka Doncic RPA (BGS 9.5/10) and a 2018 Bowman Chrome Orange Refractor Shohei Ohtani rookie auto (BGS 9.5/10).
