Sports Illustrated Blog #91 – Brady’s Back!

Welcome to my Sports Illustrated/TIME magazine blog – Your collector’s guide to the latest hobby updates and insight into what’s trending now.

Yes, Brady’s Back!  A race between the Energizer Bunny and Brady – who wins?  I wonder if Brady’s back will be on the cover of the next SI.

Why is it important?  Every update, every breaking story, every tidbit in our collector/memorabilia business, is relevant.  With few exceptions, notably the $500,000 football you’ve heard tell about, Brady back in the headlines is great for the hobby and great for Brady memorabilia holders.

More touchdowns, more yards, more wins, the possibility of another Super Bowl – it couldn’t be more fascinating.  Pricing on Brady magazines has been based on what we knew – the numbers were final and in the books.  That’s all changed.  Now, Brady is another year on the front page.  Whatever his value was, it just got a spike. 

For all you Brady holders, the fairy tale lives on.  What happens if he has another MVP year?  Super Bowl?  Smart betters have quit doubting Brady.  In my opinion, if that happens, Brady will have to be included in any goat debate naming Jordan/Mantle/Gretzky/Clay and his collector value will move from the super bargain to six or seven figures.  Considering Brady mags are much newer, that’s a big ask – watch and see.

Don’t be on the outside looking in.  It’s a great time to be a buyer.

I hope you are enjoying the reads on the history of SI, SPORT, and TIME magazines as well as an insight into relevant magazine collecting.

Great collecting to you and best fortunes with Sports Illustrated/SPORT magazines.
