After winning his seventh Super Bowl title, establishing himself as the greatest of all time, Tom Brady memorabilia continue to sell for high prices.
The soccer ball the former New England Patriots quarterback used to throw his first career NFL touchdown pass on Oct. 4. 14 of 2001, which was auctioned 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 salesman told Daniels he caught the ball when former Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn threw it into the stands at Foxboro Stadium after the touchdown.
The seller wants to remain anonymous to avoid a possible backlash from Patriots fans who weren’t happy that he got the ball. However, he said he talked to the Patriots about the ball, but they never reached an agreement.
Lelands also recently sold an autographed Brady 2000 Playoffs Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket card 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 offseason. He won six Super Bowls in New England alongside Bill Belichick.
