Texas lieutenant governor Dan Patrick has asked the Texas Rangers to assist in the search to find new England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl LI jersey.
The jersey went missing sometime after the game and has not yet been found.
“In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football. Tom Brady’s jersey has great historical value and is already being called ‘the most valuable NFL collectible ever,’ Patrick said in a statement Monday. “It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day.”
Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions in New Jersey told the New York Post said the jersey could be worth as much as $500,000 if it can be authenticated.
In Super Bowl LI, Brady, a former Michigan quarterback, led the Patriots back from a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons, 34-28, in overtime. It was his fifth Super Bowl victory in seven appearances.
Brady also won Super Bowl MVP honors for the fourth time after throwing for 466 yards and two touchdowns to one interception in the win.
