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.

Take a look at Patrick Mahomes’ reaction to his autographed rookie card selling for a record-breaking price.

Despite Patrick Schmidt’s trade to the Blackhawks, the Penguins are still aiming to get Marc-Andre Fleury. Patrick Mahomes can’t believe how much his autographed Kansas City Chiefs rookie card sold for at an auction in late July.
Patrick Mahomes’ autographed rookie card from the Kansas City Chiefs is officially the most expensive NFL rookie card ever sold in an auction.
His one-of-a-kind National Treasures Autographed Rookie Card sold for $4.3 million, surpassing a Tom Brady rookie card from his time with the New England Patriots, which sold for $3.1 million in March 2021.
That may be a one-of-a-kind collector’s item, but this is a ridiculous amount of money to spend for an autographed card.
Even Mahomes is surprised at how much the card sold for.
In a quote tweet from Wednesday morning, he expressed his displeasure to the card in issue.
My goodness https://t.co/iCGgDa2dnL — Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) July 28, 2021 Patrick Mahomes Kansas City Chiefs rookie card sells for a record $4.3 million
Is he a shoe-in for the Pro Football Hall of Fame already?
One could argue that, but he hasn’t yet completed his 26th season.
Brady, on the other hand, is in his 22nd season after graduating from Michigan and his second with the Super Bowl winner Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
By the time Mahomes puts up the spikes, this one-of-a-kind autographed rookie card might be worth eight figures if he achieves similar levels of team success as Brady.
Something is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it, once again.
A Patrick Mahomes autographed rookie card is worth $4.3 million to one person.
This season, many NFL players will not be able to do so.
What kind of card, honestly, would reset the trading card market if this agreement does not?
