New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady made a whole lot of history Sunday night, leading the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, winning his fifth Super Bowl ring (more than any quarterback) and his fourth Super Bowl MVP award (more than anyone). However, the jersey he wore doing so appears to have disappeared after the game, and Brady suspects foul play.
Here’s video (from NFL.com’s Dan Hanzus) of Brady talking with Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft after the game and saying “Somebody stole my game jersey”:

“It was right here. I know exactly where I put it,” Brady said as he called the security staff and team equipment managers to assist in the search.
…Backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo told other players to look for the jersey, but the longer he searched, the more Brady seemed to grow concerned it had been stolen.
“This is not good,” he said. “It was right here and now I don’t have it. Not good.”
While walking out of the stadium, Brady was asked by USA TODAY Sports if he had managed to locate the jersey during his extensive search.
“No,” he replied. “It is going to be on eBay soon, I guess.”
It will be interesting to see if the jersey turns up. It certainly could carry a lot of value, but with Brady being so public about it going missing, it may be difficult to sell.
