Lightning strikes twice! Back in August we picked up a 2000 Playoff Contenders Football box. We had not seen one for a very long time and frankly, did not expect to see another one. ( read older blog ). Yesterday, January 19th, we picked up our second Contenders Box. This came from an inheritance. Lucky guy! (hmmm…that’s sounds kind of morbid).
These boxes are super desirable.

- August 2017 – $2500.00
- August 2018 – $3750.00
- October 2018 – $4250.00
In August 2017, a Playoff Contenders box sold for $2500.00 on Ebay. The Contenders box we posted, in August 2018, sold for $3750.00. In October that 2000 Contenders box sold for $4250.00!! In a little more than a year, prices have jumped 70%! Amazing!
What is all the fuss about? Why are collectors bidding this box up? Ha ha! Because of this card… . This is the 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket Tom Brady Auto Rookie Card #/100. In February of 2018, this NM/MT+ card sold for $70,100.00. Now imagine if you pulled a MINT or Gem MINT version!
Imagine. What would you do with a 2000 Playoff Contenders Football box?
- Would you open it? You would have to have nerves of steel. Would you chance $4000 – $5000 for a potential $70,000.00 card?
- Perhaps you might do a box break on Youtube? There are 12 packs, 5 cards in each. Chance of two signatures. Lots of collectors might not be able to pay, say $4500.00, but at say, $450.00 a pack, you could generate $5400.00
- Why not put it away? It has value left unopened. Who knows? Twenty years from now, you might use the proceeds to help pay for your kid’s college tuition.
