Chiefs run AFC again, NFL power rankings, Urban Meyer issues and more
The Kansas City Chiefs have lorded over the AFC for the past two seasons. Which contender is ready to take their Kansas City's place, if any? Who is stopping Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs this year? It's been a question three years running in the AFC. So far, no answer. The last time the Chiefs didn't reach the Super Bowl was the start of this sensational run. They lost in a classic, the 2018 AFC Championship Game, a 37-31 overtime defeat to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. This year, Kansas City is attempting to host its fourth straight conference championship game. No team in NFL history has ever done so.— PWCC (@PWCCmarketplace)
It's the fourth-largest purchase price of all time for a sports card. The price of the Mahomes card is 38%.
"People see Mahomes as the next Brady," PWCC director of business development Jesse Craig said,"He's 25, he already has a Super Bowl and an MVP award. So, the sky's the limit for him ... and his card values."
"It's the perfect storm. It's a 1-of-1, the NFL shield an on-card auto, a rookie. You have someone betting on Mahomes' career, [and] this is as good as it gets."
Mahomes shared news of the sale with a mind-blown emoji alongside, "my goodness."
