Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, have an estimated net worth of $580 million, but, hey, one can never have enough money, right? That’s apparently the mindset of the six-time Super Bowl champ, because the dude is charging outrageous prices to sign autographs of memorabilia for fans at an upcoming session.
According to TMZ Sports, Tom Brady autograph prices for an upcoming signing session range from $1,049 to $2,199 for items such as pictures to jerseys to original paintings by artists. That’s a sh*t ton of money for little work, and the best part of the whole deal? Brady doesn’t even need to interact with any of the diehard fans, because the memorabilia needs to be submitted before a deadline, meaning the future Hall of Famer’s just going to be sitting in a room signing this stuff without distraction. Genius move by the GOAT.
Here are the various prices for the different items, per TMZ Sports:
- A flat item up to and including 11×14: $1,049/each
- A flat item larger than 11×14 up to 16×20 (mini helmet of football): $1,079/each
- A full size item larger than 16×20, helmet of jersey: $1,099/each
- Reproduced artwork/canvas, multi-signed item with five or more signatures: $1,599/each
- Original artwork/canvas or any item not listed above: $2,199 each
Over the course of his playing days with the New England Patriots, it’s been reported that Tom Brady’s left about $60 million on the table to help the franchise free up salary cap space to sign other players by taking pay cuts, so this might be his way of slowly recouping some of that cash. I mean, if Brady signs 300 pieces for two hours at this upcoming autograph session and each piece averages about $1,500, he’ll walk away with $450,000 for his “hard work.” Who the hell wouldn’t take that kind of paycheck for using nothing but their right hand? Save your masturbation jokes for another day, bros.
Tom Brady’s proving that signing autographs for a couple hours is good work if you can get it — but fans and/or artists better be ready to shell out some dough in order to walk away with his signature on it. But, hey, considering these sports collectors will then go out and, presumably, sell the stuff for 10 times the price, it seems like a decent investment to take.
