20-year-old Tom Brady relic going up for auction
The precious football from Tom Brady’s first-ever touchdown pass is set to go up for auction after being held tightly for 20 years by the respective owner. According to Tom VanHaaren of ESPN, the owner has kept the football in his possession since the legendary game in October of 2001 and has decided it’s time to put it for sale. With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback winning another Super Bowl, maybe it’s a perfect time.
Brady is often referred to as the GOAT and will end up in history as one of the best- if not the best- quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. The Buccaneers star has seen much of his memorabilia hit the shelves and go for sale.
In fact, one of Brady’s cards was expected to be sold for around $2.5 million. How much will his first-ever touchdown pass football go for? Who knows.
That card was graded as an 8.5. They have the same card graded as a Beckett 9 up for auction Sunday. Only 7 of those cards graded at 9, none higher.

Collectors obsess at the chance to own a piece of history as precious as this one, especially considering the historic number of accolades Brady has on his resume as he is undoubtedly destined for the Hall of Fame and should hold the reign of the greatest to ever play the position.
Even more, Brady is returning for another year and the Bucs have returned all of their starters from the Super Bowl-winning team, putting Brady in firm control of getting title number eight.
For the lucky fan in attendance who caught the football from Terry Glenn, his bank account will look enormous after the historic sale of a once-in-a-lifetime piece of sports memorabilia.
