Tom Brady Announces His Retirement

Tom Brady has announced his retirement after 23 years in the NFL. He will be remembered as seven-time Super Bowl champion, five-time MVP and all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns during his NFL career.

Tom Brady was a multi-sport star before he achieved fame as an NFL player at Junipero Serra High School in California, according to Monday Morning Quarterback’s Tim Rohan. He demonstrated impressive batting and ball handling prowess but preferred playing football rather than baseball due to its more comfortable environment.

He was originally drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft, but ultimately chose out of his contract and continued playing football at the University of Michigan. While this decision proved risky for them since they had no control over his baseball rights, it proved an ideal move for him as he went on to become an iconic quarterback for both New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In 2004, the Montreal Expos selected shortstop Ian Desmond. Unfortunately, Desmond never made his MLB debut as the team moved to Washington, D.C. and became known as the Nationals in 2005.

Tom Brady was an excellent baseball player, boasting a left-handed bat and strong base running skills. Additionally, he had excellent fielding ability and could play all three outfield positions.

At the start of his senior year, he hit.311 with eight home runs – good enough to earn him a place on the varsity team.

Though he was an under-the-radar prospect, he still had plenty to offer the MLB world. A great athlete, left-handed hitter, and reliable catcher all in one – there was nothing lacking for this promising youngster.

Former Expos scout John Hughes felt that despite being only an 18th-round pick, this high school star had the potential to make a major leaguer. That is why they paid him like one of their second round picks when they signed him.

Today, Brady is a retired football player and widely considered to be the greatest quarterback of all-time. His record of victories over 40 games and completion rate of 89,214 passes make him one of football’s all-time greats.

Regarding his Rookie Cards, there are plenty of options available and many have become highly sought-after on the secondary market. Some come at a higher cost than others, but all are valuable and worth searching for.
