Antonio Brown Autograph Leaf Cards Sell Out Within Minutes Following Caitlin Clark Controversy

Limited-edition inscription Leaf cards of controversial former NFL star Antonio Brown sold out within five minutes of release on Monday. Only 100 inaugural rapper autograph cards of Brown were produced. This product drop comes weeks after Brown made sexually-explicit social media posts about Caitlin Clark, causing the No. 1 WNBA overall pick of the Indiana Fever to block him.

The inscription packs were going for $59.99 before selling out within minutes.

“Antonio Brown’s inaugural rapper card has just dropped, featuring mind-blowing inscriptions! These are sure to become collectors’ treasures, packaged in random-inscription packs,” Leaf wrote in the cards’ description lot.

Inscriptions include “CTESPN,” “Whole Lotta Money,” and “Get In My Bag,” among others. He also inscribed one card: “I ‘heart’ Caitlin Clark.”

Brown’s problematic posts on X, formerly Twitter, about Clark began on April 17 when he criticized her appearance. He would later go on to make sexist posts about Clark, causing her to block Brown.

Brown is no stranger to controversy. In 2019, Brown was accused in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting his former trainer, Britney Taylor. The lawsuit was settled in 2021. Also in 2019, the New England Patriots released Brown after only one game when he was accused of sexual misconduct by a separate woman.

In 2020, the NFL suspended Brown for eight games after he was arrested in connection for attacking a moving company driver. The NFL suspended Brown again in 2021 for three games for supplying the league with a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. Later that season, during a Week 17 matchup against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, Brown took off his gear and ran shirtless into the locker room while the game was going on during a memorable scene, marking the official end to his career.

Following his playing career, Brown was accused of exposing himself to a woman at a hotel in Dubai in 2022. In October 2023, Brown was arrested for unpaid child support and released on bond. Also last year, the National Arena League kicked the Albany Empire, the arena football team Brown owned, out of the league after Brown failed to pay either a required fee or a fine for conduct detrimental to the NAL, according to ESPN.

Brown was a First Team All-Pro for four consecutive seasons and seven-time Pro Bowler during his playing career.
