Tom Brady Not Letting Jersey Out Of His Sight After Superbowl

Last season, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s Super Bowl Jersey went missing after the Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl, kicking off the infamous “Jerseygate.” Funny enough, for this Superbowl’s prop bets whether or not Brady’s jersey goes missing is an option to wager on.

The Jersey, which Brady had intended to give to his ailing mother, Galynn, was stolen from the Patriots’ locker room during the chaos after the Patriots pulled off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. It was later found at the home of Mexican journalist Martin Mauricio Ortega, who also happened to be a sports memorabilia collector.

The Mexican authorities also found Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey from their win over the Seattle Seahawks in 2015, which also disappeared after the game.

The authorities were able to recover the stolen jerseys thanks to a tip from 19-year-old Dylan Wagner, who also collects sports memorabilia.

Wagner had been doing business with Ortega and after selling Ortega a jersey, the Mexican sent Wagner a picture of his collection and that’s when Wagner noticed that Ortega had Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey in his collection
“I knew exactly who had [the jersey],” Wagner said in April. “[Ortega] sent me 30 photos of his collection. Front and center was Tom Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX Jersey. I asked him outright, ‘How did you get that?’ and he says ‘I’ll tell you later.'”

Wagner notified the authorities soon after and they were able to recover both jerseys.

Wagner was rewarded for his help with a pair of tickets to the Patriots home opener and some autographed memorabilia from Brady and Robert Kraft.

“He helped us get our jersey from the Super Bowl,” Kraft said. “We’re honored to have him here as we have a special celebration tonight.

If the Patriots win the Super Bowl this year, Brady likely won’t need Wagner’s help locating his jersey.
“I’m taking it with me, man, if we win,” Brady said Tuesday. “If we lose, I’m throwing it in the garbage.”
