The NFL Films/Fox Sports documentary on the theft of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl game jersey is drawing some excellent reviews.
“The Great Brady Heist” chronicles the well publicized event in which a man from Mexico used a press credential to enter the New England Patriots locker room immediately following Super Bowl LI in Houston in February 2017.
It includes the first ever on-camera interview with the man who stole the valuable jersey and chronicles his fascination with the NFL and its players that led to the daring theft which involved NFL security, Houston police and even the FBI.
Brady lent his support to the project and is interviewed in the film.
The film includes interviews with auction house representatives and the young game-worn jersey collector who helped pinpoint the man who took the jersey–and other items from previous Super Bowl games.
We saw NFL Films at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland a couple of years ago, gathering video and interviews that became part of the broadcast.
“The Great Brady Heist” runs a little less than an hour. It debuted on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7:00 PM ET on FOX, the night before Super Bowl LIV. Premieres were held in Boston, Miami and Los Angeles.
