Even in Tampa Bay, all things Tom Brady remain in high demand.

A package of four tickets to Brady’s first home game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the quarterback’s jersey and cleats from the game and dinner or a workout with him afterward closed at auction Tuesday night for the whopping price of $800,000.

The auction was part of the All In Challenge, created by Fanatics founder and Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin to fight food insecurity amid the coronavirus pandemic. Brady was one of several athletes and celebrities to offer various goods and services, like a double date with Russell Wilson and Ciara that sold for $240,000.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

The full, over-the-top Brady pitch from the auction’s site:

After 20 historic years with the powerhouse known as New England Patriots, Tom Brady is packing his bags and leaving the chilly shores of New England for the warm picturesque beaches of Tampa Bay. As a fan, you've watched him dominate the NFL with his six Super Bowl Championships, four Super Bowl MVPs, and many more impressive accolades, and now you can watch him take his talent down South. You'll get to join Tom in this historic and unprecedented experience by attending (with three friends) his first game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in addition to either a private dinner or a private workout with Tom himself - the choice is up to you and your friends! After every awe-inspiring moment with this modern legend, you'll get to take home his first game-used uniform and cleats to display and cherish with your other Brady memorabilia. A moment like this doesn't happen often in sports, and now you can be a piece of it and all it's glory. 100% of the money raised through this Game/Auction will go directly to Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry.

Also closing on Tuesday night were packages from Peyton Manning, Alex Rodriguez and Magic Johnson. Once again — at least in the dollar department — Brady topped Manning.
