The Playoff Contenders is a true rookie card, not an insert/parallel. Here are Brady's true rookie cards I would recommend, after these three there is quite a bit of a drop off.

1: Playoff Contenders
2: SP Authentic
3: SPx

bumping because I noticed a lot of Tom Brady rookie cards have doubled and even tripled in price since this thread started. Looks like they could go even higher the next few weeks.
So the two best holy grails now for football seem to be Tom Brady and Joe Namath rookie cards.

I am not sure I agree with this statement. Joe Namath RC, sure, but Brady? The big problem here is that Brady has quite a few rookies, such as the SP Authentic, Playoff Contenders, Bowman Chrome, etc. So which one is the holy grail here?

Also, would you take a Brady RC over the 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski? I sure as hell wouldn't!

If he loses this time around, I'm positive the prices will cool down. The Eagles know that in order to beat a champion you have to knock him out because there is no way they will win by decision.

I should have worded it better I should have said the holy grails of vintage and modern football cards.
Namath the grail of vintage football cards.
Brady the grails of modern football cards.

Also I would in a heartbeat take Brady rookie cards over 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski.
Why? It is so much easier to flip and the Brady card has not peaked yet.
We have to factor in modern collectors. I know of a few modern collectors who much rather have the 86 Jordan rc over the Mickey Mantle rookie for 52 Topps.
I know it's hard to believe, but the modern collectors go by nostalgia just like the vintage collectors do. Jordan was their Mantle just like Brady is their Namath.

Brady beat Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning in the Superbowl. This Philly team might be their easiest match yet with Brady going against a backup quarterback.

Brady never faced Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl. It's impossible - they both spent their whole careers in the AFC.

He did beat Kurt Warner, Donovan McNabb, Jake Delhomme, Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan.... and lost to Eli Manning.
