Tom Brady continues to set records, on and off the football field.
While Brady “only” threw one touchdown pass in Tampa Bay’s 38-31 victory against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, he has thrown 30 this season and 70 in 27 games since coming to the Buccaneers.
Brady’s game-used, autographed jersey from this season’s 28-22 victory against Philadelphia on Oct. 14 is for sale at NFL Auctions. The current high bid is over $200,000 and the auction still has a week to go.
All of the money raised will be donated to Brady’s TB12 Foundation.
Against the Eagles, Brady threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns, completing 34 of 42 passes as the defending Super Bowl champions won on the road to win a Thursday night game. At the time, the Bucs (8-3) improved to 5-1.
Despite playing with an injured thumb, Brady, 44, went 11-for-12 for 121 yards and two TD passes during Tampa Bay’s first two drives.
The jersey from that game has Brady’s autograph, plus inscriptions that include the notations “LFG”—which stands for let’s (expletive) go,” a phrase that has been uttered by the quarterback on the Buccaneers’ video boards before home games — “7x SB Champs,” “Go Bucs” and “10.14.21.”
The auction, which opened on Nov. 17, is scheduled to close on Dec. 7.
It has been quite a year so far for the seven-time Super Bowl champion. He has already thrown for 3,403 yards, completing 309 of 457 passes. He also has led the Bucs to three fourth-quarter comebacks this season and has 41 overall.
The TB12 Foundation was founded by Brady in 2015. According to the nonprofit’s website, the organization is dedicated to “maximizing the health, well-being, and athletic potential of underserved athletes” by providing free access to health and wellness resources to athletes.
Those resources help support their preparation, performance and recovery.
The TB12 Foundation has already donated more than $1.6 million to athletes and organizations in need of support.
Per the auction rules, no charitable deductions will be offered for the person who wins the bidding war. The NFL accepts Visa, American Express and MasterCard, but do not take personal checks, certified checks or money orders.
