Patrick Mahomes’ rookie card becomes most expensive football card ever sold
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The Super Bowl is less than a week away, where Texas Tech alumus and Super Bowl Champ Patrick Mahomes will face off with NFL legend Tom Brady.
If Kansas City wins, Mahomes will be the youngest quarterback to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
On Monday, he broke another record, for most valuable football card ever sold at $861,000.
A 2017 Panini National Treasures #161 Patrick Mahomes Signed Patch Rookie Card, of which only five exist, was purchased for $861,000, making it the most expensive football card ever sold according to Forbes.
Meanwhile, the second highest selling football card is an autographed Tom Brady 2000 Playoff Contenders rookie card.
That sold for more than $550,000 just last week.
The National Treasures #161 Mahomes is widely considered the most sought-after Patrick Mahomes card in the industry. This particular card is limited to just five copies ever issued, and is what is known as the “Black” version; represented by the accent printing in black on the card.
