The uniform jersey bearing #12 that Tom Brady wore when he won the greatest Super Bowl of all time is missing. Texas is taking this very seriously, and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has called in the Texas Rangers (the law enforcement agency, not the baseball team) to track it down.
The jersey could fetch more than $300,000 if it can be authenticated.
Brady said in the locker room after Sunday’s win that his game-worn jersey had been stolen. “It was right here. I know exactly where I put it,” he said.
As the NFL’s dogged investigation turned up, perhaps the Rangers should start here.
Pro tip: if you’re going to steal a very valuable jersey that doesn’t belong to you, don’t post it on Instagram with the hashtag #stolehisjersey.

Whoever took the jersey, realize that Texas won’t stop looking until you’re found. They don’t take well to stealing down in the Lone Star State. Plus, what are you going to do with it, sell it on eBay? The jersey belongs in the Hall of Fame. Perhaps if you fess up and return it now, you won’t face a lynch mob, or a Texas prison cell.
Just return it.
