We could go on and on about Tom Brady's many accomplishments as an NFL quarterback, but we'll skip right to the chase and nominate him for GOAT. With fame such as Brady's, comes all kinds of media appearances, including the offered 4/15/02 Sports Illustrated Vol. 96, #16 issue, which marks his first time on the venerable magazine's cover. Rated a respectable (8.5) by CGC, this early 21st Century publication is a must for devoted fans.
Please note the holder has a 5" crack at the bottom left corner. The magazine remains unaffected by this condition.
