The sale of the ball used in Tom Brady's "final" touchdown pass has been dismantled.
According to Lelands Auctions, the $518,000 sale has been voided through a mutual agreement between buyer, consigner, and auction house.
In late-January, the unnamed purchaser purchased the ball at auction just 24 hours before Brady made his surprising announcement.
According to ESPN, no money was exchanged, so the agreement was not broken.

"We wanted to do the right thing here," Mike Heffner, president and partner of Lelands, told ESPN. "It's the most unique situation that we'll probably ever encounter in our lifetimes, at least when it comes to sports memorabilia. We're still not at the end of the book yet; we've written a chapter."
The ball will still be auctioned through Lelands, but it has the appropriate framework.
By the time the 2022 NFL season begins, Brady will be 45 years old. It will be the 23rd season for the 7-time Super Bowl winner.
