Tom Brady’s Retirement Beach Auctioned on eBay
Someone willing to pay six numbers for a full Mason jar sand where Tom Brady is said to have sat while filming his retirement video?
Once upon a time, Jack, a struggling farm boy in the English countryside, was asked to sell his family’s precious cow so that the family could have enough to eat for the rest of the week. Instead of selling the cow, he traded the cow for some magic beans. Have you heard this story? Maybe. While everyone mocked Jack for making a one-way transaction rather than DeAndre Hopkins deal back in 2020, Jack proved his intuition right when the peas sprouted a magic bean plant that grew to the sky. Yes, he is a great hero for making such a remarkable trade. Now, imagine the beans that never sprout. How stupid will he look? Probably not as stupid as anyone who spends $100,000 – or more – on the sand where Tom Brady announced his retirement.
23-year NFL vet, seven-time Super Bowl champion and recent three-time MVP announced retirement from a beach in Florida. Quickly, investigators tried to decipher where that beach was. Turns out it was a public beach in Surfside near Miami, where he was once rumored to play. Despite that, this perception has led some people to do what they do best, trying to make a quick buck, but no one succeeds as well as eBay users. utilities.
Gadgetgs quickly figured out the exact spot Brady had taken his retirement video and filled the jar with as much sand as he could. He posted a photo of the jar as well as a New York Times newspaper from February 1 to prove that the sand was taken recently. As you can see from the tweet above, people have bid close to $100,000 for the little pebbles where Brady once stood. That is completely ridiculous.
Will the sand sell for six figures?
Even crazier is that the bid has gone up since. It currently sits at $99,900. Whoever makes the next ridiculous bid will be marching into six-figure territory. That’s more than two years’ worth of an average American’s salary…being spent on sand.
You know what the saddest part about all this is though? Any remnant of Brady’s feet being on that sand is likely long gone. It’s already come out that Brady recorded that video at least a day before posting, but perhaps longer. Sources close to Brady told ESPN and NFL Network that he shot the video “a while ago.” The Boston Globe But also report that Brady told his parents he was retiring more than a week before the video was posted on social media.
With the changing tides and constant winds on the coast, chances are that any Brady county that may have crawled into the sand as Brady shuffled his feet along the rough surface may have long since disappeared. If anyone bought this vial hoping to find some Brady’s DNA and duplicate his own triple MVP, chances are they’re in luck.
Sure, many will try to cash in on this fad. Now, we’ve seen many TikToks of people finding the same spot and taking some of their own pebbles to sell on the internet.
What next though? Grass from the exact spot in Raymond James Stadium where Tom Brady made his last touch? That would be the next logical step, and if that turns out to be the case, perhaps being the custodian of the Tampa Bay estate could eventually land you a six-figure salary. So I’ll quickly go to Really Quick and see if there are any list.
