Whether or not his story continues on the field, Tom Brady's legend has already been well written into the pages of sports history for generations to come. That will surely extend to his influence on American popular culture, as evidenced by the soaring figures commanded by his most high-end collectibles. Brady-to-Lelands has become the most formidable combination in the industry as evidenced by record-setting bids offered for numerous TB12 items in the past year alone. Another such (dwindling) opportunity is present in this 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket #144 Tom Brady Rookie Autograph card, numbered 48/100. Over a dozen of these Champ Tickets have sold since the 2021 Super Bowl, and no one has handled more than Lelands. This is also the second PSA graded example to hit a major sports auction since the 2021 Super Bowl, this being the highest graded, and we're confident in stating that the PSA NM-MT 8 grade with 9 Autograph compares favourably to BGS 9s that we have handled in the past. Not only do the crisp autograph and beautiful edges place this issue among the best offered to date, but it is also an incredibly rare example that does not display the two-dots near the Playoff logo present in most. It's impossible to say how many - if any - more of these treasures will come to the open market, but offerings of this caliber are sure to become few and far between in the years to come.
