2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket Tom Brady RC AUTO /100 #144 BGS 9
This $2,400,000 sale is the highest price for any football card at public auction this year. It is also tied for the third highest public auction sale for a trading card this year. It places as the third highest public auction sale for a Brady card ever. This issue is considered by most collectors to be the blue-chip Tom Brady asset. Its allure is compounded by the fact that it remains incredibly difficult to find in high quality.

It is just the second time a Trout card has ever sold for over a million dollars.
1998 Kobe Bryant All-Star Game Crazy 8 Game Worn Sneakers – Kobe’s First All-Star Game
Bryant was the third player in NBA history to serve in a bench role throughout the season and get elected as an All-Star starter. To celebrate the occasion, he wore the black and white colorway of his Adidas Crazy 8 sneakers that featured trimmings in the purple and gold of the Lakers and saw his jersey No. 8 stitched into the base of the tongue.
The sneakers sold for $87,000 on Thursday night.
“These are the sneakers worn by the youngest All-Star in NBA history,” said Nick Cepero, Head of Memorabilia at PWCC Marketplace. “Kobe Bryant’s debut on the All-Star court at 19 beat Magic Johnson’s record and held out against LeBron James’s debut as both were 20 at the time. On top of the historical significance, these are tremendously beautiful in terms of design with the elegant purple Lakers color match and an understated number 8 sneakerheads have come to adore.”
