The jersey went missing following the Patriots’ stunning 34-28 comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5. According to league officials, Brady realized the jersey was stolen immediately after the game.

“It’s unfortunate, because that’s a nice piece of memorabilia,” said Brady, speaking to the press after the game. “Those are pretty special ones to keep. But what can you do? I’ll take the ring. That’s good enough for me.”

According to a report issued by the Houston police department, the jersey’s estimated value is $500,000.
