Tom Brady is quite possibly the greatest player numerous generations of NFL fans have ever seen. With the 41-year-old signal caller looking to make history by winning his sixth Super Bowl, it should come as no surprise that a lot of his memorabilia might be worth a ton.
Especially his rookie cards.
Enter eBay power-seller Rick Probstein, who sold two autographed Tom Brady rookie cards for $110,000 and $25,655 each, respectively.
Wow. That's a lot of coin.
We all know the improbable story of Brady. He wasn't a huge star while playing collegiate ball with the Michigan Wolverines, and had a less-than-stellar NFL Draft Combine performance. The New England Patriots would end up selecting him in the sixth round of the 2000 draft, and after an injury to Drew Bledsoe in '01, the rest was history.
Five Lombardi Trophies, four Super Bowl MVPs, and three regular season MVP awards to go along with all manner of all-time records for winning and passing alike? Yeah, that's just the kind of guy he is. At this point, he's pretty much universally acknowledged as the best to ever play.
You know who's seriously the winner of all of this no matter what happens in the Super Bowl? Probstein's bank account.
