After Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to an incredible Super Bowl 51 victory, his jersey from the big game suddenly went missing. Brady thinks it’ll end up on eBay, and if it does it should probably be listed for around $500,000.
Houston cops did write up a police report for the incident with the 6’4″, 225 pound Tom Brady as the victim. On the police report, which (of course) was obtained and posted by TMZ, the missing item (or Super Bowl winning jersey, rather) is valued at $500,000. That’s right, $500 grand.
For what it’s worth, a couple days after the game, a sports memorabilia expert pegged the price of the missing jersey on an open market at an incredible $1 million.
“I would not have a hard decision to make in pricing that at a million. I think if we auctioned it off it would probably sell for a million. That’s a lot for a modern jersey. The key is that you probably have to sell it very quickly because now is the time when people are the most excited and the most fanatic about these kinds of things. Five years from now something else will happen, something else will occur and it will probably go down in value,” Josh Evans told For The Win.
But the $1 million doesn’t really matter at the end of the day, because the jersey is currently missing and cops are saying the crime is a 1st degree felony.
What on earth was the person who actually stole it thinking when he committed the crime? That no one would notice?
