Hardly Roberto Clemente or Mickey Mantle.
They hate him now but in 10 years they will appreciate him.
Also he is modern superstar in the age of Facebook,Twitter,Youtube and internet which I could see him having more demand than Mantle in 20 years.

Think of Clark Gable. He is the king of Hollywood,but anybody under 40 would rather have Leonardo DiCaprio or Tom Cruise's autograph.
Why? Gable was never part of thier childhood like DiCaprio or Cruise were,similar to how it will be in 20 years when people will remember Tom Brady in the Superbowl and have no memories of the Mick.

If he has more demand than Mantle, he will have 100x the supply.

agreed .... if it was sold, there is the chance that it was sold to someone who just wanted a Brady RC, and may not have another sports card

It would not have gone for that after this loss ... and I'd bet Brady never sees another Super Bowl, save the box seats

I'm guessing you are either a SUPER FAN or someone who will be looking to cash in on Brady cards that you may have

In any event, if there are collectors in 20 years, Mantle is certainly going to be remembered. In the sports card hobby, baseball is clearly the most collected sport.

I just meant did a real bidder win the card. Sometimes people bid without any intention of paying, but just to bump the price up.

I agreed with you ... maybe it didn't come out that way

I was also adding that the price could have been just one person wanting to own a Brady without regard

I collect Ruth Gehrig and Joe Jackson. Three of the most coveted players in all sports collecting. What is the logic that no one will remember Mickey Mantle in 20 years. That’s just idiotic.

Idiotic may be an understatement imo
