Sports cards question (Tom Brady rookie card)

Discuss any and all other sports-related topics. From the College Sports, Fantasy Sports, Archery to Water Polo and everything in between. LANGUAGE: PG-13
  • So I see on the news lately that rookie Tom Brady football cards have been selling for a ton of money.
    One last week went for $2.25 million at auction. Wow!

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31188022/tom-brady-rookie-card-sells-record-225-million

    So I dug out my old football card collection from when I was a kid, and I found a rookie Tom Brady card. Still in a protective plastic sleeve after 21 years.

    It's a 2000 Crown Royale Rookie Royalty card.
    I looked on Ebay, and the asking prices range from $150-$10,000. This is the card (not my card): https://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-Crown-Royale-Tom-Brady-Rookie-Royalty-2-Surface-Issues-Fully-Pictured-RC-/224394087630

    Are any of you guys card collectors or know anything about this stuff? Should I sell the card to a pawn shop, or hang onto it?

    I called a sports card shop here in Spokane, and he wanted me to come in and he would appraise it. He kept asking if it's been "graded." It has not.

    Any advise or input or personal stories would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like $100-200 raw (not graded).
    If yours is in GREAT condition, it could get you $400. But that a very sensitive card condition wise because of the foil bottom corners.

  • Oh, and grading companies are BACKED up forever right now because of Covid.
    It would take 6 months to get that graded.

    This is a great place to sell it besides eBay.........

    A really good scan or photos should sell it quickly.

    No problem!
    I'm "RW3FAN" on Blowout.

    Also, if you don't trust the card stores in your area, give DJ's Sportscards in Renton a call.
    He may be able to consign it for you if you send it to him. Or outright buy it via GOOD photos.
    Honest guy, been in business for 30 years. He's about a mile from my house.

    His name is Don.

    Graded cards by reputable grading services command higher prices because there is no squabbling over the condition.
    The card store owner or buyer cannot cannot legitimately claim the card is in a worse condition than it is to lower the price they will pay.

    I used to collect and buy baseball cards. I wouldn’t buy any cards now unless they were graded by a reputable card grading service.
