2000 Bowman Chrome Refractor #236 Tom Brady Rookie BGS GEM MINT 9.5. One of the earliest of the now-immensely popular Chrome offerings, this has the added status of being part of The Brady Collection, as out of the 235 examples on BGS Pop Report, there are only 31 of these 9.5s. One of just two TB12 rookie cards produced by Topps companies, this is also one of the earliest refractor specimens; unlike many of today's entries with multiple colors, this is the only refractor parallel offered for this card. Spectacular BGS GEM MINT 9.5 with sub-grades: Centering 9, Corners 9.5, Edges 9.5, Surface 9.5, this is just about as good as it gets for this iconic rookie specimen. According to Beckett's listing of Brady rookies, "The 2000 Bowman Chrome Tom Brady Rookie Card is one of his most valuable," and that is in reference to the base card, not the refractor premium, which is "extremely popular today." Exquisite eye appeal, spectacular color, and a superb rookie action image of the man who would become The Best of the Best make this tour de force among the most highly coveted Tom Brady issues to come to market.
