-- Tom Brady is holding a private autograph session and prices for his signature are higher than ever.

The event is not open to the public but fans were invited to submit items by March 10 to be autographed and the prices are steeper than before.

If you want a standard flat item autographed it will run you $1,049 but if you want your original artwork or any item not listed on the pricing sheet, that will set you back $2,199.

These prices are up from two years ago when an autographed mini helmet cost $900.

-- Speaking of original Tom Brady artwork, a 10-year-old created an impressive mosaic of the Patriots quarterback using only Rubik’s Cubes.

Maxim Lin, a fourth-grader from Westwood, Mass., is a Rubik’s Cube master and spent over two months on this project. He used 999 Rubik's Cubes on the mosaic, which will be showcased at Sheehan's STEM Festival on Wednesday.

The wooden frame of the masterpiece was constructed by Maxim and his father and was designed for 999 cubes, 37 rows high and 27 rows across.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “At the end of the day, I do think this does get resolved in a plea deal, whether it’s a deferred prosecution agreement or a more traditional plea deal. But, it might take a little bit longer to play out. I don’t know if he’s going to accept the first offer. On the other hand, the benefit to that would be closure. I am sure he would like to get this behind him and face whatever consequence he will get from [Roger> Goodell.” -- Michael McCann, on the latest developments in the Robert Kraft situation
