Tom Brady is big everywhere. The collectibles market is no exception.

An autographed rookie card of the G.O.A.T. sold on Thursday for $1.32M.

“I lived in Boston for 10 years and so am a huge fan of Brady,” purchaser James Park said on PWCC Marketplace’s Instagram account. “I’ve also had a love of collecting cards since I was a kid. Given Brady’s uncontested status as GOAT in football, this card is an important piece of sports history and of any collection.”

ESPN noted the record price might not last long. The sold card was graded as an eight with a 10 grading on the signature. However …

… there is already a similar card being sold at Lelands auction house. The same Brady card is up for auction, but it’s graded an 8.5 with the signature graded a nine.

The card at Lelands currently has a bid at $707,565 with 29 days still remaining in the lot.

“This is the best of the best, the Holy Grail,” says Jordan Gilroy, Lelands’s Director of Acquisitions.

Per Boston.com:

Lelands said early bids for the card have already hit $700,000 since the auction opened last Thursday, which represents a total sale value of $849,000 once the auction house’s 20 percent premium fee is accounted for. And that’s with nearly a month left to go in the bidding process, which will continue until April 2.

“We’re a few bids away from getting to $1 million,” Gilroy said, “which would be the most expensive football card to ever sell in a public auction.
