How much is Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl game jersey worth?
ESPN’s Darren Rovell estimates that Brady’s game jersey would be worth up to $500K if it sold at auction.
“You can’t put this on eBay, you can’t put it in regular auction,’ Rovell said. “I think the thief – let’s assume it’s a thief and not a misunderstanding – didn’t think it through how this would go. You’re certainly not maximizing your earnings because you can’t post it in a public setting.”
Soon after the Patriots won the Super Bowl Sunday night, the top quarterback’s jersey was reportedly stolen from the locker room.
Brady’s Super Bowl jersey could even be worth upwards of $500,000 – or as little as zero, if it’s not recovered soon and authenticated, according to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions in New Jersey.
“I would say it’s worth somewhere north of $300,000 and maybe close to a half million dollars – but, that’s based on it not being stolen and being free of any incumbrances, liens or other claims,” Goldin told the NY Post. “He’s the most popular and most collectible football player ever,” Goldin said, “He likely comes right after Michael Jordan in terms of athletes who have played in the last 40 years.”
Offering some advice, Goldin said, whoever has it should hire a lawyer, turn it over to the lawyer, see if there’s a reward and be happy with that.
“Those are pretty special ones to keep. What can you do?” Brady said that night. “I’ll take the ring and that’s good enough for me.”
