A Tom Brady card sold for $400,000 at auction.

Brady had already won more Super Bowls than any quarterback, but then added one more for good measure after the team defeated the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

The mint 2000 Players Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket card was sold by PWCC Marketplace for just over $400K this week, easily beating the previous record that was set last week when a Michael Jordan card was sold.

In the USA and the United Kingdom , the Samsung Galaxy Buds will go on sale March 8, the same day the new Galaxy S10 phones go on sale.

PWCC's description dubbed it "certainly the most important modern football card ever auctioned publicly".

Only 100 of the cards were produced - with only two receiving a grade nine from Beckett Grading Services. "The trading card market is rapidly maturing among tangible asset investors and record prices are becoming increasingly frequent, especially among the market's most desired issues", said Brent Huigens of CEO of PWCC Marketplace.

The sale of Brady's card pales in comparison to the top prices for rare baseball cards. "We were honored to present this asset to the public and are delighted for the new owner".
