Brady 'cleaning out the basement' after rookie card fetches $400K

Tom Brady may be selling off some of his collectibles after seeing one of his rookie trading cards sell for a record-setting $400,100 on eBay.

The New England Patriots quarterback shared a screenshot of a story about the card Wednesday on Instagram and joked about cleaning out his basement:

The autographed 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket card belonged to former NFL guard Evan Mathis, who told Forbes’ David Seideman that he acquired it at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland last summer.

“I love where the hobby is right now and where it’s headed,” Mathis said.
