Prices for Tom Brady memorabilia were already among the highest around and a third Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award should ensure the trend continues long after he finally hangs up his cleats. Brady was 37 of 50 for 328 yards and four touchdowns in Super Bowl XLIX, rallying the New England Patriots to a fourth Super Bowl title.
Here’s a look at the top 5 most expensive Brady memorabilia items sold at public auction.
1. $46,000. Game-used jersey from 2011 win over Dallas Cowboys. Brady wore this jersey during one of his late comebacks. Sold at the Hunt Auctions/NFL Auctions event three years ago.
2. $27,600. Game-used jersey from 2012 International Series win over St. Louis. Brady donned this away jersey in a 45-7 win in London. This one was sold at the 2013 NFL Super Bowl Auction.
3. $26,290. Game-used jersey from 2012 loss at Seattle. Brady’s MVP effort in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday night should make the pain from this one finally go away. The Pats blew a big lead that day against the Seahawks but the losing result didn’t affect the price of the jersey, which was sold last August by Heritage Auctions.
4. $16,698. Game-used jersey from AFL Legacy game in 2009. This old Boston Patriots style shirt was sold by Grey Flannel Auctions in June of last year.
5. $4,915.20. 2002 Super Bowl game-used, autographed football. This might turn out to be a pretty good investment. Purchased less than two months ago via SCP Auctions, the ball comes from the game that launched the Brady legend, a come-from-behind win in the Super Bowl against the heavily favored St. Louis Rams.
Expect the demand for Brady’s rookie cards from 2000 to continue to grow and prices to rise after his fourth Super Bowl victory (see an up to the minute ‘most watched’ list here). Depending on grade, brand and population, they can sell for several thousand dollars or well under $100.
Brady autographs aren’t cheap, with prices from one online retailer generally starting at $700 and going up, depending on the item signed.
