The ball from Tom Brady’s last-ever touchdown has sold at auction for $518,000. 

Or rather, what people thought was Brady’s final touchdown ball after he announced his retirement.

But the halt in his lengthy career lasted just six weeks before the 44-year-old decided he isn’t quite ready to put a definitive end to his playing time.

One day after he watched 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo score a hat-trick for Manchester United, and two days after the auction closed, Brady announced that he would be returning for the upcoming season his former side.

The ball featured in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ loss to the LA Rams.

Brady thew the ball 55-years to wide receiver Mike Evans to score a touchdown – but the Bucs‘ late comeback wasn’t enough to see him off with a win.

Evans tossed the ball into the crowd and it was caught by a lucky spectator, prompting it to go to auction.
