Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes have been battling for NFL supremacy among the league’s top quarterbacks the past few years, with Brady winning two of the last three Super Bowls and Mahomes winning one.

The GOAT and the NFL’s brightest young star have also gone head to head on the football trading card market, with both QBs setting records in recent months. A special Brady card set the all-time football record in June, selling for $3.1 million. Mahomes shattered that mark in July, with a patch, auto card selling for $4.3 million.

Cards featuring the two quarterbacks continue to fetch record prices, with Brady and Mahomes rookie cards leading the way in the October Premier Auction at PWCC Marketplace.
