Tom Brady Rookie Card and Mel Ott Gamer Lead The Way in Lelands Fall Classic Auction

A Tom Brady rookie card sold for $900K and a spectacular 1931 Mel Ott New York Giants game-worn, photo-matched jersey fetched $387K in the Lelands 2021 Fall Classic Auction, which closed December 11, 2021. The 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket #144 Tom Brady Rookie Autograph is the “Holy Grail” of Brady cards, and one of the hottest cards in the history of the hobby. The card sold has an autograph grade of 9 and a NM-MT 8 grade.

The Ott jersey sold is absolutely stunning and historically exceptional. Fewer than five jerseys worn by the Hall of Fame slugger have survived the passage of time and been offered for public sale. Adding to the rarity and significance is this is the first-ever photo-matched Ott jersey.
