An eBay seller took swift action when NFL star Tom Brady made his retirement announcement on Wednesday at a Miami beach.
The listing on the website titled “Tom Brady’s exact retirement spot – Bottled Sand” has six days left before the auction ends.
As of Sunday afternoon, the current bid stands at $99,900.00. The listing reads:
Bid for 1 of 2 samples taken from Tom Brady’s exact retirement spot on February 1st 2023. Only 2 samples taken on the day of retirement just hours after his video was posted online. Proof in photos. You will be receiving an 8oz mason jar bottled with the exact sand the GOAT Tom Brady made his retirement video on.
Brady reportedly made the announcement while relaxing on Surfside Beach near the home he shared with ex-wife Gisele Bundchen, the New York Post reported.
