With football season around the corner, we’ll be looking into some great football cards from both veterans and rookies alike.

Screen Shot 2017-08-09 at 10.49.42 PM.pngWe might as well start with one of the greatest quarterbacks in the game today who cemented his legacy after last season’s Superbowl leading the New England Patriots in an amazing comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Tom Brady’s rookie cards will be even more popular once he retires, but at age 40, he’s still better than most of the quarterbacks half his age!

Speaking of rookie cards, here’s one his most valuable – the 2000 Playoff Contenders autographed football card.

Finding one in mint condition (BGS Graded 9) is worth a cool $12,000 (See the one in the link provided on eBay). 

But one that is BGS Graded 9.5 in Gem Mint condition is currently valued at $100,000 (Click link to see the eBay posting).

It must indicate one that’s in Gem Mint condition is really rare to find as opposed to the mint condition ones. Here’s a couple more in mint condition that’s currently available on eBay.
