Tom Brady’s game-winning jersey was robbed after dramatic Super Bowl victory

Tom Brady will never forget Super Bowl LI.

Brady put forth an inspired performance to guide his New England Patriots to a comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Houston and was named MVP for the fourth time in his career.

It’s lucky that the experience will live long in Brady’s memory as he is without what would be a terrific memento of the event, his game-winning jersey.

As the dust settled in the NRG Stadium, Brady went looking for the jersey in the Patriots dressing room only to discover that it had gone missing.

Amid the raucous celebrations, it was the first thing that he mentioned to franchise owner Robert Kraft as he couldn’t hide his disappointment.

Security officials were tasked with searching for it but to no avail and one would imagine that it will be the subject of an intense bidding war online.

When asked by USA Today as he left whether the jersey had turned up, Brady had a succinct reply.

“No,” he said. “It is going to be on eBay soon, I guess.”
