Bid Now in Lelands Mid-Spring June 4, 2021 Auction of Amazing Memorabilia and Cards

The single greatest offering of Tom Brady cards in existence and Brady’s historic first career touchdown pass football highlight the Lelands 2021 Mid-Spring Classic Auction, which runs through June 4.  Bid, view and register for the auction at lelands.com.

The centerpiece of the collection of nearly 100 of the best Brady rookies, autographs and unopened wax boxes is the highest graded 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket autographed rookie card (a BGS MINT 9), dubbed the “Holy Grail” of Brady rookies. Lelands sold another specimen of the card (a BGS NM-MT 8.5) for a record-setting $2.25 million earlier this year. The Brady card collection up for bid also features a BGS 9.5 Bowman Chrome Refractor, numerous SP Authentic rookies, a 1/1 NFL logo shield, SPX and even a SP Authentic Football Factory Sealed Hobby Box.

Brady threw his first TD pass in the NFL on Oct. 14, 2001, in a home win against San Diego, connecting on a 21-yard strike to wide receiver Terry Glenn. And now that iconic ball, which launched Brady’s Hall of Fame career and paved the way for the Patriots’ dynasty, is up for auction. The consignor of the ball is the fan who caught it after Glenn tossed it into the stands following his TD celebration. The consignor, who has asked to remain anonymous, is a 48-year-old Rhode Island man and longtime Patriots fan and season ticket holder.

The auction also features a spectacular Kobe Bryant game-worn jersey from his days at Lower Merion High School. The incredibly rare jersey is MEARS 10 certified and sources from one of the basketball legend’s agents and then passed down to a former NBA player.

Another auction centerpiece is a 2007-08 Exquisite Collection Rookie Parallel Kevin Durant three color RPA / 35 BGS MINT 9. Extremely scarce, the Durant 3-color is one of the most iconic Exquisite Rookie Patch Auto’s ever produced.

Also on the auction block are a Juan Soto 2016 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Orange Refractors (BGS GEM MINT 9.5), a Ty Cobb T206 Red Portrait PSA 8 — there are none higher — and a Babe Ruth glass plate negative that produced his 1933 Goudey #181 card and highlights a collection of original images from the famed Brown Brothers archive up for bid.

The auction also includes a 2019 National Treasures FOTL Zion Williamson RPA / 30 BGS 9, a 2018 Panini Prizm Blue #280 Luka Doncic Rookie / 199 PSA 10, a 1986 Fleer Basketball Unopned Wax Box, and a Kawhi Leonard 2013 Spurs NBA Finals Games 6 and 7 game-worn, photo-matched jersey.

Additional auction highlights include a collection of game-worn jerseys from Steelers Hall of Famers and star players that comes directly from the team’s archives, a 2017 National Treasures Patrick Mahomes Printing Plate 1/1 RPA, Super Bowl I full unused tickets, Tom Brady’s signed, game-worn cleats from his first-ever matchup against Mahomes, a 1976 Topps #148 Walter Payton rookie card PSA GEM MINT 10, and Frank Ryan’s 1964 Browns NFL Championship ring.
