Goldin Auctions is teaming up with the New England Patriots to auction off a collection of 30 jerseys worn from games from several different decades and put them up for sale in the company’s latest auction.
Two of the jerseys are from the 1971 season while the rest are primarily from the past 20 years, including those worn by Kevin Faulk, Logan Mankins and Chandler Jones in playing action. Each comes with a letter of authenticity from the Patriots.
“We couldn’t be happier to partner with the Patriots to auction this collection of match-worn shirts that tell the story of this franchise,” said Executive Chairman and Founder of Goldin Auctions, Ken Goldin. “A lot of jerseys come from the Brady-Belichick era, considered one of the longest and most dominant dynasties in the sport.
The auction includes several thousand lots and the money is expected to go to reputable cards featuring some of the greats of the modern age. One of 99 LeBron James Rookie Patch Exquisite 2003-04 Upper Deck autograph cards (# 32/99) rated BGS 8.5 / 10 has already exceeded $ 600,000 in the first auction.
A 2000 Tom Brady Championship ticket autograph card – the first of a draw of 100 – is also included in the auction. Rated BGS 7/9, it stood at $ 220,000 on Wednesday afternoon and auctions are expected to run until early October.
There’s also a PSA 10 rookie Michael Jordan 1986-87 Fleer and a UD Exquisite Jordan 2003-04 patch card (# 029/100) rated BGS 9.5 / 10 both of which have passed the six-digit mark. A PSA 10 copy of the Panini Mega Craques rookie card Cristiano Ronaldo 2002-03 should also fetch a hefty price tag.
“In addition to our perennial big-priced items like LeBron and Brady, we also continue to see tremendous interest in football, making it the fastest growing hobby area in terms of popularity, and we are delighted to see the offers coming in for the Ronaldo rookie card, ”said Goldin.
