    Wasn’t that just $2000 a few years ago? How could it jump that much already?

    The guy that bought it paid $15,000 for it 3 years ago. There's an article on him somewhere where it says he started collecting in 2010 and was buying every different brady rookie in the best condition. Smart man. He made a killing.

    Smarter than us, a lot of us fans knew Brady was special in his early years and we should have been collecting cards.

    Yup, the ones selling for 10's of thousands of dollars now were once 10-20 dollar cards. It's been said there were alot of michigan wolverine brady collectors that got in early because they knew about him before he even got into the NFL.

    I have a quantam leaf. Goes for about $100 on eBay last time I checked. A guy I worked with back then bought a pack of cards and gave it to me because he knew I was a Pats fan. Never selling it though. I have it framed.

    I actually went to school with this kid and honestly I am happy for him. He was bullied a ton and to see him come out on top like this is good to see.

    He was a GREAT young talent. He was my #1 pick in 1987 Strat-o-Matic league.

    A little long and OT, so skip unless you're interested in the Collectibles Market.

    The Collectibles Market is not for the faint of heart. For every guy like this, who buys low and smart and hits the market with a winner, there are dozens who have not done so well...but this guy sounds like he might be set for life if he really has the inventory of Brady memorabilia that he claims to have.

    Looking back, it always looks easy. But, who knew in 2011 (when he apparently started buying Brady stuff) that Brady would go to four more SB's and pick up two more Lombardi's?

    It's interesting that this was sold before Brady lost last Sunday. So, this guy isn't greedy. The Collectibles Market fluctuates wildly and auctions are a real crap shoot. He sold when 28--3 was on peoples' minds. He decided to take his profit and possibly forgo more money because he didn't know what would happen if Brady lost last week. My guess is he would have pulled the card from the market and waited before he tried to sell it again.

    A friend has his own store where he sells a wide range of collectibles. The fluctuations in markets are nerve wracking. Verified autographs by all four Beatles on a scrap of paper are probably worth $10,000 today; the same signatures on a high quality photo will get nearly $20,000; on an original Album Cover in good condition (not on pieces of paper at the bottom)? $40,000+. John Lennon's autograph on a piece of paper? $5,000. On an original Album Cover in good condition? $15,000.

    Unless he wins another SB, the market for Tom Brady memorabilia will probably never be hotter than it was after LI. It's not rational. Also, he doesn't sign a lot of stuff, so the value will probably always be there.

    The Beatles, when they were together, signed relatively little. They became popular so quickly that they didn't have to send out hundreds of promotional photos.

    Then, John's premature death made anything signed by the four of them on a quality medium become instantly collectible. Also, most "Beatles" autographs that you see online are either frauds or were signed by one of their assistants. And, they signed a lot of stuff after concerts that is low quality and sloppy. My friend is a recognized authenticator of Beatles' signatures and he said that most of what comes to him is fake.

    The Gold Standard for authenticated signatures, which never go down in value? George Washington, Marilyn Monroe and Babe Ruth. Washington sigs are very rare (Lincoln actually wrote a lot of letters and signed a lot of dispatches during the Civil War, so his sig isn't as valuable...will still get over $10,000). Monroe signed very little. A lot of Babe Ruth autographs were for fans who lost them.

    My father has a TB12 rookie that Beckett says is worth 10Gs. Anyone know where we could go to get more info?

    He doesn't really want to sell but I think he should. He's got plenty of cool stuff that he displays the card sits in a safety deposit box.

    Anyway he doesn't really want to sell but we would like to find out some info about it. What does a card market so say when a player retires or when he gets in HOF? Basically we want to research when the likely best time to sell would be and the best way to sell? If anyone has any trustworthy leads that would be cool.

    Quite honestly, if I ever want to know what something like that is worth, I go to eBay to see what they are selling for.

    Please note I said to see what they are selling for, not what they are listed for.

    Well, I guess I now know why Belichick will never be more valuable than Brady.
