After winning his seventh Super Bowl title, solidifying himself as the greatest of all time, Tom Brady’s souvenirs continue to sell at high prices.
The football that the former New England Patriots quarterback had used his first NFL career-high pass on October 14, 2001, which was sold at auction by Lelands, sold for more than $ 428,000, according to Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal.
The auction started at $ 75,000 and generated 33 total bids.
The seller told Daniels he picked up the ball when former Patriots receiver Terry Glenn slammed it into the stands at Foxboro Stadium after the touchdown.
The seller wants to remain anonymous to avoid potential reaction from Patriots fans who were not happy to have kept the ball. However, he said he spoke to the Patriots about the ball, but they never reached an agreement.
Lelands also recently sold an autographed Brady 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket last Friday for a record $ 3.1 million.
Brady spent the first 20 years of his career with the Patriots before signing with Tampa Bay last season. He won six Super Bowls in New England alongside Bill Belichick.
