Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey is missing.
New England’s star quarterback revealed in the locker room Sunday night that someone had likely stolen the jersey he wore during the Patriots’ epic 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Brady confirmed at his MVP press conference this morning that his jersey was still missing.

Some believe the jersey could be worth upwards of $500k, but it’s tough to imagine anyone being able to get away with selling such an easily recognizable stolen product.
So, who has it?
Some think it’s this guy:
The jersey does look legitimate and based on the “#stolehisjersey” hashtag, it’s fair to deduce that, yes, this guy stole Brady’s jersey.
However, a closer look (plus the “RELAX!! ITS A JOKE updated caption) reveals that it’s probably not actually the jersey.
Check out the sleeves on the jersey above:

There seems to be a lot more room under the Pats’ logo on the Instagram guy’s jersey than there is on the jersey Brady wore during the game.
