Tom Brady Game-Worn Jersey Sells for $46,000

Each player on the losing team in Super Bowl XLVI walks away with a $44,000 check.  That’s $2,000 less than someone paid for a game-worn Tom Brady jersey on Saturday.  Brady’s shirt from a comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys October 16 sold for a remarkable $46,000 at the annual Super Bowl Auction in Indianapolis.

Game worn Tom Brady jerseyCollectors and fans bid online for a couple of weeks and then in person at the Indianapolis Convention Center on the eve of another Super Bowl appearance by Brady, the sixth round draft pick who had a chance to add another ring to his collection.  It’s believed the price is among the highest ever paid for an active player’s jersey in any sport.

Realized prices included a 15% buyer’s premium.

The Brady jersey outpaced hundreds of other vintage and modern pieces of football memorabilia offered in the sale conducted by Hunt Auctions.

The official NFL charter given to the Baltimore Colts upon their acceptance into the league in 1953 brought a realized price of $34,500.

A signed jersey won by Tim Tebow during his first start this season sold for an eye-popping $14,950, beating a 2004 Peyton Manning jersey from 2004 that was also autographed and came with a certification letter from his foundation.  That shirt brought $11,144.

A Super Bowl V salesman’s sample ring bearing Johnny Unitas’ name brought $14,375 while a game-worn Ben Roethlisberger jersey worn on the September 11 tenth anniversary game this season, signed by the Steelers’ quarterback, sold for $10,103.
