Six months after signing an exclusive autograph deal with Fanatics, the seven-time Super Bowl champ stopped by the company’s offices to sign more than just a contract.
When Fanatics announced its new deal with Brady, he was barely into his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While another title seemed like a bit of a longshot at that point, it couldn’t have worked out any better for the the sports memorabilia giant. Brady captured his fifth MVP award and fans were again lining up to spend some serious cash on Brady signed jerseys, footballs, photos, helmets and other items.
It’s not known how many items were signed in all, but the long line of helmets alone that were awaiting his signature–Michigan, New England and Tampa Bay–was impressive.

On Thursday, Fanatics tweeted out a short series of images showing Brady–or at least his hand–getting down to business with the marker, signing and inscribing in rapid succession.

Each one of those scribbles netted Brady a lot more than the 20 cents or so he says he got for signing his rookie cards back in the day. Full-sized helmets, without an inscription, run about $3,000 on Fanatics’ partner site, SportsMemorabilia.com. Jerseys net $3,400-$3,800. A Super Bowl football with inscription goes for $3,200.
