BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — How much would you spend on one of the future Hall-of-Famer's signed rookie cards?
A rare Brady card that's part of the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket series sold for $400,000, which PWCC Marketplace CEO Brett Huigens told WBZ was especially unique.
"It's neat because the card was made in the year 2000—it wasn't made in 1935, it was made in 2000, and the general public's perception of trading cards is that they're not really worth anything unless they're really old, and that's just not true," he said.

There are only 100 of this Brady card in existence, and Huigens said this is the best of the collection that's surfaced on the open market.
He's thrilled the card went for so much.
"I think the conservative market estimate was $250,000," Huigens said. "I personally for selfish reasons was really hoping it would get up above $330,000, because that's where it would set a record for being the most expensive football card auction."
As for Brady, he posted about the card on Instagram.
Another record for the G.O.A.T.
