Patrick Mahomes is truly one of a kind. He knows how to win football games from impossible situations and on top of that, he knows how to stay humble upon accomplishing what many can t even dream of achieving. These factors, along with the fact that he has 2 Super Bowl titles in just 6 seasons, have contributed to making Patrick one of the most marketable athletes in the competition.

Something exactly like that happened when Mahomes rookie card went up for sale. While people were expecting Patrick s card to rake in the moolah, not many had thought that he will end up shattering GOAT Tom Brady s card-sale record.
