1. Tom Brady

After his Monday night assault, the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, saw his stock and prices of cards reaching the same historic levels as his Monday-night performance. Tom Brady is a once-in-a-generation quarterback and has a tremendous following from his crazed New England fans. Mix that with his three Super Bowl rings and dramatic performances he is able to pull off, and you now understand why the demand and price of his cards are so high.
