New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a four-time Super Bowl champ, a three-time Super Bowl MVP, a two-time league MVP and, after the last year, one of the more controversial stars in the NFL.
What he isn’t is an easy autograph.
However, TRISTAR announced a private signing with the future Hall of Famer on Tuesday with the date set early enough in December for sports fans to consider adding his ink to their collections and have it arrive just before the holidays.
The deadline for items mailed in to TRISTAR is Nov. 30, and that’s the same day that the company has placed on orders for signed items available from the company.
Autographs start at $649 for flats up to 11×14 when mailed in or bought from TRISTAR. A 16×20 photo is $699 as is a Patriots mini helmet. A signed NFL football will cost $799, while a replica helmet is $849 and an authentic helmet is $949. Jerseys are $849 and $1,049 from TRISTAR, while inscriptions are $179 or $199 while personalizations (up to 20 characters) are $299. Mailed-in items — perhaps a focus for Michigan fans — are priced about the same way.
When it comes to certified autographed football cards, Brady has fewer than 800 different cards available to collectors since he was drafted in 2000 and most of them are signed in very low volume.
