Jan. 26 (UPI) -- An autographed Tom Brady rookie card rated in "virtually perfect" condition was auctioned for a staggering $555,988.
The card, listed by PWCC Marketplace, was rated by PSA Authentication and Grading Services as "Gem Mint," a designation that means the card has been kept in "virtually perfect" condition.
PWCC Marketplace's description said the card is "what we personally believe to be the single most important modern football card ever produced."
"The fragile gold foil ticket truly excites as it possesses no visual scuffs, scratches, or imperfections. All four corners are uniformly untouched with the fragile periphery being entirely clean; rare as this card is typically plagued by edge chipping.
"Furthermore, one of the most difficult aspects of this card, the autograph is seemingly pristine and brilliantly penned in black ink," the description read.
