PAUL BUTLER, HOST: Well, trading sports cards is making a comeback.

An autographed rookie card of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes recently sold at auction.

Even Mahomes himself was impressed when he found out how much it sold for. He told WDAF-tv...

MAHOMES: That’s a lot of money. I’ll say that. I knew that it was going up for auction. I found out. But for it to go for that much, it shows that that business has been growing.

The 2017 mint condition card sold for—are you ready for this?—$4.3 million dollars!

That surpassed the previous record by more than a million bucks. A Tom Brady rookie card sold at auction for $3.1 million back in March.

REICHARD: I need to change up my hobbies.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
