A Patrick Mahomes autographed card has sold for $4.3 million, the highest price ever paid for a football card.

Although there was no Lombardi trophy on the line this time, Patrick Mahomes has dethroned Tom Brady.
PWCC Marketplace stated that a Mahomes 2017 Panini National Treasures 1-of-1, NFL shield, autographed card sold for $4.3 million, the most ever paid for a football card and the fourth-largest price ever paid for a sports card. The National Sports Collectors Convention begins on Wednesday just outside Chicago.
PWCC director of business development Jesse Craig remarked, “They envision Mahomes as the next Brady.”
“At 25, he’s won a Super Bowl and an MVP award.”
Thus, for him, the sky’s the limit…
“It’s the perfect storm,” Craig added, referring to his card values.
“It’s a one-of-one, an on-card auto with the NFL shield, a rookie.”
This is as good as it gets for someone betting on Mahomes’ career.” With this series, the complete NFL emblem from a player’s game-used jersey is wrapped in a card, enhancing its uniqueness.
LJ’s Card Shop of New Albany, Ohio, a internet business selling single cards, boxes, cases, and memorabilia that recently built a brick-and-mortar shop, is betting on Mahomes.
A Patrick Mahomes 2017 Panini National Treasures 1-of-1 NFL shield autographed card sold for $4.3 million, the highest price ever paid for a football card and the fourth-highest price ever paid for a sports card.
“At LJ’s, our goal has always been to establish the best modern-day card collection,” a store representative said.
“We’re always on the lookout for cards that will add value to our collection, and the Mahomes is certainly a work of art.”
The Mahomes card will be on display at the National Sports Center before being returned to the PWCC Vault for safekeeping.
“I feel it will be a long-term investment,” Craig remarked.
“[It] probably won’t see the light of day for quite some time,” Beckett Grading Services said of the card, which adds to its worth.
The previous high of $3.1 million was reached at a June Lelands auction, when a Brady 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket Signed card sold for that amount.
The card was numbered 8/100 and had a Beckett grade of 9 with a 10 signature.
There is no memorabilia swatch on it.
“When Brady was a rookie in 2000, there were no 1-of-1s,” Craig noted.
“Because, look, if you invest in a player who is still active and young, there is inherently more risk.”
Tomorrow, Mahomes might be hurt.
He also has a chance to win another MVP award and a Super Bowl ring.
“What we found about modern stars is that [fans] like to feel invested in them when they appear on the field or court,” says PWCC Marketplace, which has brokenred three of the top four sports card sales of all time, all since January: the $5.2 million sale of a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, the 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection LeBron James RPA (rookie patch signature), and the Mahomes.
