Tom Brady‘s choice to retire from the NFL has actually triggered a huge spike in demand for memorabilia connected to the 7-time Super Bowl champ — and TMZ Sports has actually discovered collectors are demanding to purchase and offer memorabilia connected with the G.O.A.T.
Officials from PWCC Marketplace inform us given that Brady revealed his retirement Wednesday, purchasers are extremely looking for TB12 trading cards online. Meanwhile, sellers are attempting to discharge a few of the rarest Brady pieces they have at auction.
An associate for the auction website informs us Brady, who retired after 23 NFL seasons, is now the most browsed gamer on the PWCC Marketplace. For context, Tom was ranked 10th amongst the leading browsed gamers in the days prior to his retirement statement.
“It’s a limited data set we’re looking at due to the fact it’s just hours after he announced his retirement, but it is safe to say interest in Brady’s trading cards and collectibles has risen substantially,” PWCC officer Jesse Craig stated.
“That data is going to support what will also be the consensus market perspective that his retirement will create an increase in demand for his collectible assets.”
Craig states a seller called PWCC after Brady’s statement … and is auctioning a 2000 Brady Bowman Chrome Refractor Rookie card that’s anticipated to cost over 6 figures.
“The fact that it’s coming to auction so immediately after this announcement means there are sellers out there who were waiting for this,” Craig stated.
“They are choosing to move high-end Brady assets now because they feel this retirement will be a keystone event in his legacy.”
In November 2021, PWCC offered a BGS 9.5 copy of the exact same card in the leadup to Brady’s very first retirement for $312,000 at an auction.
Of course, Brady simply retired … so the dust hasn’t totally chosen his Hall of Fame profession, however it’s currently clear that Tom’s tradition continues to extend beyond the football field.
