Sports tickets have exploded in popularity in recent years with debut tickets for such legendary athletes as Michael Jordan, Mickey Mantle and Wayne Gretzky all topping six figures.
It stands to reason then that a debut ticket for Tom Brady, the greatest NFL quarterback of all time, would also fetch a high price.
Sports memorabilia investment platform Collectable is offering investors the opportunity to own shares of a full-size ticket from Brady’s NFL debut on Nov. 23, 2000.
Brady made his debut on Thanksgiving Day against the Detroit Lions, entering the game late in a 34-9 loss after starter Drew Bledsoe was injured. Brady completed one pass to tight end Rod Rutledge — his only completion of his rookie season.
Brady didn’t play again in 2000 but took over the starting role in Week 3 of the 2001 season when Bledsoe got hurt again. He wound up leading the Patriots to a Super Bowl title, launching one of the greatest careers in NFL history.
The Tom Brady 2000 NFL Debut Full Ticket is graded PSA Near Mint 7 (Pop 1), with just one known copy graded higher.
The IPO price is $107,750 and investors have the opportunity to purchase shares of the full ticket for $10 per share.
