Default Tom Brady Rookie Card

First time posting on this side, but can a member clarify what Brady's TRUE rookie card is please and what would it cost me to obtain one?

One of the reasons I prefer vintage cards. Tom Brady probably has 100 or more cards that can be considered RCs, any from the year 2000. Prices could range from 5-10 bucks to $10k+

This one would be the one to own though:

From what I see on the PSA registry, they went with this: 2000 SP AUTHENTIC TOM BRADY

Yep, its this one that's considered his "true " rookie. Agree with another poster, the modern stuff starts to get really frustrating, I think Peyton Manning has like 250 cards issued his rookie year, whereas Steve Largent has one and only one true rookie. (for reference of course)

Default Brady's RC

Hi Greg,
The 2000 SP is his best rookie card and usually runs about $1,200 for an 8 and about $1,750 for a 9. However, it is not a very attractive card.

I personally prefer the 2000 Bowman Chrome or Bowman Chrome refractor. The regular Bowman Chrome is about $90 in a PSA 8 and $150 in a PSA 9. The refractor is probably about $600 in a PSA 8 and $850 in a PSA 9.

If you don't care for Chrome cards, you could go with the 2000 Bowman regular issue at about $50 in a PSA 8 and $85 in a PSA 9.

These are Brady's best RC's. Like I said, the best RC is the SP but I prefer the "looks" of the Bowman/Bowman Chrome more. You can have a better looking card and save some dough in the process.

Hope this helps.
Scott

Thanks all, wouldn't mind going for an SP from UD but the ones on eBay are crazy priced. Anyone know where I can buy one "reasonable"??

Isn't the Auto Playoff Contenders a very popular one as well. Maybe not classified as a true rookie because of the auto and I guess it was an insert-type card, correct?

I personally wouldn't include it because of the auto/insert aspect but yes, it is a popular card. It's all a matter of personal preference. The Bowman Chrome refractor is also an insert card but to me it it's not a chase card like the Playoff Contender.

To give you an example using vintage cards, Otto Graham's RC is listed as the 1950 Bowman on the PSA registry but if someone were to approach me with a 1946 Sears card I wouldn't dismiss them if they called it his rookie card. The argument against the 1950 Bowman is that there was actually another card issued prior to it. The argument against the 1946 Sears is that it was not nationally distributed. I feel that both sides have valid points. Again, to me it is a matter of preference.

It seems like only football cards issued from 1951 through 1988 have rookie cards that are pretty clear cut, with the exception of the 1955 Topps All-Americans & 1961 Topps/Fleer. You can't call something a rookie card 10 years after he retired (Hutson). Again, it's personal preference.

The Contenders is numbered as part of the base set and is considered a true rookie card.

I've never understood the allure of the SPA. Much like most of Rodgers' RC's, I dislike the red practice jerseys.

I agree about the Bowman Chrome. Classic product, NFL uniform, great design.
