Sorelian's Ghost: Guy was an idiot and as proof.

A game worn pair of of Nike's worn by Michael Jordan his rookie season sold for 1.47 million dollars yesterday.

I wonder what the 600th touchdown ball (the only one in the world) would have netted at Sotheby's.


- $62,000 (effectively in cash)
- $1,000 Gift Card
- A game used football
- 2 Signed brady jerseys
- Helmet
- 2 tickets to the four remaining games (and I expect they will be pretty damned good tickets)
- 2 season tickets for next year
- Signed Evans Jersey
- Evans game worn cleats
- Probably gets to meet Brady
- An awesome story

That isn't chump change. And it avoids potential issues where as soon as he leaves the stadium cameras there is a question of the authenticity of the ball which is indistinguishable from any other game ball, and the Bucs sure as shiat aren't going to certify it in any way.

Not to mention that legally he has no right to it, but of course the Bucs don't want to have a PR disaster so they will pay him off.

Hillbilly Jim: Not quite sure what the market would be on the 600th TD football. In 35 years is anyone really going to care about it?


No one has 600. No one will have 600 again. 

He has 308 games under his belt, so he is effectively averaging 2 TD's a game. For 22 years.

ChrisDe: I'd settle for an hour with Giselle.

Actually, I wouldn't need more than 4 minutes.


You gonna cuddle for those other 3 minutes and 10 seconds?

Not quite sure what the market would be on the 600th TD football. In 35 years is anyone really going to care about it? Brady is probably going to throw another 70-80 touchdowns.


It will have a market, but it won't be nearly as valuable as his last TD or the one that broke the record.

Three things:

1) The stadium staff could easily just take it from you if you were difficult about it. 
2) Not being difficult about it essentially netted him close to $100k in rewards. 
3) An authentication sticker is required for items of this type, a screenshot isn't gonna cover it. You get things authenticated through the team. They could refuse to do so if they wanted.

Sounds like the price, unlike the ball, suffered from inflation.

Good to know that Brady drinks the crypto bs for real and not just for his commercial.
