    Description

    2000 Playoff Contenders Tom Brady (Rookie Ticket) #144 BGS Mint 9, Auto 10. If there had been any doubters left, Super Bowl LV silenced them forever. The quarterback who had shepherded the New England Patriots to six NFL Championships left behind that NFL juggernaut and its legendary coach for the franchise with the lowest winning percentage in league history and proceeded to lead them to Vince Lombardi's promised land in his first season under center. In displacing Michael Jordan from their shared throne with his seventh championship ring, a forty-three-year old Tom Brady set a new standard for athletic greatness and ensured for himself a brand of immortality that even the certainty of his future first-ballot Hall of Fame induction couldn't possibly supply.

    The final chapter of this epic tale has yet to be written, and Brady still has three naked fingers left and the apparent will to adorn them in gold and gemstones, Father Time be damned. Only a handful of living sports fans can claim that they saw Babe Ruth play the game, and it's a certainty that one day the elderly will be telling stories to their great-grandchildren of the time they saw Tom Brady in the flesh.

    Who can imagine how far up the pricing ladder this remarkable commemorative will climb in the years to come? The slight variation "Championship Ticket" example of this entry is now, by far, the most expensive football card on the planet at over $3 million. We doubt the rising tide will end there.

    This boat will almost certainly rise upon that tide, a marvelous specimen bested just fifteen times in Beckett history. The all-important black sharpie signature from the sport's most accomplished figure is unimprovable.

    Graded BGS Mint 9 with subgrades: Centering 10, Edges 8.5, Corners 9, Surface 9.5, Autograph 10 and a Beckett Auto 10.
