Collector screwed out of $518,000 by Tom Brady announcement

One sports collector is really kicking themselves after Tom Brady’s big Sunday announcement.

Brady announced on Sunday that he is not retiring and that he will be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for next season.

The news comes a day after a collector paid $518,628.00 for the football that was regarded at the time as Brady’s final touchdown pass. The item was sold via auction from Leland’s.

If Brady indeed plays in 2022, he will likely throw many more touchdown passes, rendering the ball nearly worthless.

The collector was always making a risky investment because the entire value of the ball hinged upon the belief that Brady would not be returning. Many people believed all along that Brady might change his mind and return, and that is exactly what happened.

The collector made a poor investment, though anyone who can pay $518,000 for a collector’s item probably is wealthy enough to afford the financial loss.

While the person who bought Brady’s final touchdown ball might not be too happy about Sunday’s announcement, there is one person involved in that specific play who is happy about it.
