One of Tom Brady's rookie cards sold for a whopping $250,000 on eBay on Thursday.

It's the highest price ever paid for a Brady collectible and the second highest price ever paid for a modern-day sports card, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. The previous record for a Brady collectible sold at auction was $57,500, which someone paid for a game-used jersey last February.

The card, one of 100 produced in 2000, was purchased by Brady collector Joe Prizio three years ago for $15,000.

"I wanted to enjoy Brady cards, but I also wanted to make good investments," he said. "Brady, in the card world, is now being mentioned in the same breath as (Michael) Jordan and Mickey Mantle."
