The ball from the last career touchdown pass quarterback Tom Brady threw as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has sold for $518,000
With 3:20 to go in the fourth quarter of the NFC divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams,
Brady heaved a 55-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mike Evans, cutting the Rams' lead to 27-20.
Because Brady had not given any indication that he would retire
at that point, there were only rumors that he was contemplating hanging it up,
Evans threw the ball into the stands. The fan who caught the ball consigned the item.
