Patrick Mahomes doesn’t only own the richest contract in NFL history. Now, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is the face of the most expensive football card of all time, as well.

An autographed Mahomes rookie card sold for $4.3 million Wednesday, setting a record for any football card. It’s the fourth-highest selling card ever, regardless of the sport.

The sale of the Mahomes 2017 Panini National Treasures 1-of-1, NFL shield, was announced by PWCC Marketplace. It broke the previous record that was set in June when a Tom Brady rookie card was sold for $3.1 million.

"People see Mahomes as the next Brady," PWCC director of business development Jesse Craig said, via ESPN. "He's 25, he already has a Super Bowl and an MVP award. So, the sky's the limit for him ... and his card values."

"It's the perfect storm. It's a 1-of-1, the NFL shield an on-card auto, a rookie. You have someone betting on Mahomes' career, [and] this is as good as it gets."

LJ's Card Shop of New Albany, Ohio made the purchase.

Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Chiefs in February’s Super Bowl, but Kansas City’s quarterback is on a trajectory toward becoming one of the greatest players to ever wear an NFL uniform. In just three seasons as a starter, Mahomes has won an NFL MVP award and a Super Bowl MVP award with two trips to the Super Bowl. 

Mahomes’ 108.7 career passer rating is easily the best in league history. The Chiefs are favored to win next year’s Super Bowl.

Brady has a record seven championships and five Super Bowl MVP awards. After the 2021 season, the former New England Patriots quarterback will rank first in NFL career earnings.

Last summer, Mahomes signed a record 10-year, $450 million extension.

A LeBron James rookie card and Mickey Mantle rookie card have both been sold for a record $5.2 million. A one-of-one 2018-19 Panini National Treasures Luka Doncic Logoman RPA was sold for $4.6 million in March.
