Description: Featured here is one of the most important modern trading cards in the market today - the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket Tom Brady, held firmly within a very attractive Beckett 8 holder. As everyone knows by now, Tom Brady entered the NFL with zero attention attached to his name, being drafted 199th overall in the 2000 draft. In 2001 he would take the reins of the Patriots after an injury to then starting QB Drew Bledsoe. Six Championships, three MVP awards and many records to his name since then, the evidence of Brady's success is difficult to deny. Few athletes have attained brand awareness to match Tom Brady; a figure who possesses the draw of invincibility that only comes with championships. Like Jordan, Gretzky, Woods, Ruth and Venus; Tom Brady holds the status of immortal, and is one of our culture's most active-legends, still showing attributes of youth and viability which seem to redefine what's possible within the landscape of professional sports. Presented here is his most iconic and desired trading cards, limited to just 100 copies ever made, with only a handful of copies ever maintaining the status of high-grade. Unlike the traditional Playoff Contenders, the Championship ticket is much more difficult to obtain, and possesses an exceedingly fragile refractor right edge which is commonly plagued by scuffs and/or chipping. What we have here is an irreplaceable Beckett 8 example which is positioned firmly atop the finest copies known to exist and is the only copy we've seen that boasts remarkable GEM MINT surfaces. In fact, only three examples in the world possess this quality. In hand, the aesthetics of this card takes full stage, showcasing an elegant rainbow reflective color and a tremendous action shot of the legendary #12. The card is perfectly aligned from all sides with thick gloss and superb registration. Very light wear to the extreme periphery and ultra-sensitive corner tips is all that keeps from grading higher. Finally, one of the most difficult aspects of this card, the autograph is pristine and brilliantly penned in black ink. All told, this Championship Ticket parallel represents one of the most condition sensitive trading cards ever issued, ushering in the arrival of Tom Brady's rookie campaign. There are simply not enough of these assets to be shared among investors, and as the trading card market continues to mature, assets of this caliber are expected to continue their rise towards a never ending upward trajectory. A heroic quality offering of a living immortal, exceptionally impactful to American culture and embodies the best of what trading cards have to offer to investors. We are elated to offer this world-class trading card to the investment community free of reserve. Good luck to all the bidders. Please see the video highlight for more details on this piece.
