Tom Brady’s jersey from his final NFL game is poised to make a significant splash on the auction circuit, potentially fetching an astonishing $2.5 million. This piece of sports memorabilia will soon be up for grabs as part of Sotheby’s and Wynn’s Official Auction of the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix.

The jersey in question is the white No. 12 uniform that Brady donned during his last NFL game on January 16, 2023, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers faced off against the Dallas Cowboys in a Wild Card playoff matchup during Monday Night Football. Despite Brady’s impressive performance, which included 351 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, the Buccaneers fell to the Cowboys with a final score of 31-14, marking the conclusion of Brady’s illustrious career.

Experts in the field of sports memorabilia anticipate that this item could potentially become the most valuable game-worn jersey in history, surpassing the $1.2 million price tag attached to Joe Montana’s San Francisco 49ers uniform worn during Super Bowl XIX and Super Bowl XXIII earlier this year.

Brahm Wachter, Head of Streetwear & Modern Collectibles at Sotheby’s, expressed the significance of this rare piece of sports history. He noted, “There are only a few athletes who are universally accepted as the greatest in their sport — Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth. For the National Football League, it’s Tom Brady.” Worn during the very last game of Brady’s storied career, this historic jersey serves as a tangible memento of his unparalleled legacy and is arguably the most coveted NFL jersey ever to be offered at auction.

This iconic vehicle could potentially command a staggering $15 million at auction, further adding to the excitement and prestige of the event.
