    Description

    1998 Tom Brady Game Worn/Game Issued Michigan Wolverines Jersey.

    UPDATE: The MEARS letter of evaluation states that there has been a nameplate change, but our experts disagree. We are providing highly-magnified images of this area of the jersey that will allow interested bidders to make their own determination. If there had been a nameplate removal, the outline of the original stitching path should be visible, particularly on the interior collar tagging.

    Just as he began his NFL career as a backup to Drew Bledsoe on the Patriots, Tom Brady began his collegiate career backing up Scot Dreisback and Brian Griese as a Wolverine. With Griese's departure after the 1997 championship season, the future Hall of Famer took on greater quarterbacking duties for Michigan as a junior and senior, performing admirably.

    During his junior campaign in 1998, Brady threw for 2,427 yards and fourteen touchdowns, while completing 61.9 percent of his passes and leading Michigan to a 10-3 mark. And as a senior in 1999, he recorded 2,217 yards and sixteen TD's while completing his passes at a 61.0 percent clip and leading the team to a 10-2 mark. The jersey offered here dates from that junior year.

    Road white wide mesh displays dazzle cloth shoulders, elasticized sleeve cuffs, Spandex pleated side panels, ribbed knit v-neck collar, custom hemmed tail, and striped sleeves. Meanwhile, all of the player and team identifiers, which include "10" (on the front, back, and shoulders), "Brady (on the verso nameplate), and "M" (on the sleeves), are screened-on in midnight navy and yellow paint transfers. Also, tagging is limited to a singular Nike size "50" label sewn into the back collar.

    Completely original, with absolutely no changes to the player identifiers, this stunning exemplar is perfectly spec'd and style-matched to 9/5 versus Notre Dame (See Getty Images 81474516 and 72463678) and 11/21 versus Ohio State (see Getty Images 397898).

    Brady wore a road white jersey in six of the twelve regular season games he played for Michigan as a junior. We have only been able to find high resolution images for two of those seven contests. While we able to ascertain a definitive style-match from those two games, the dearth of high resolution images currently available to us from the remaining four contests of the 1998 season has prevented us ascertaining a definitive photomatch. As images of the four missing games become available in the future, that fact may change. With his six Super Bowl MVPs, unchallenged mantle as the best quarterback ever, dawn of a new chapter in Tampa Bay, and limited supply of known Brady gamers, we expect the bidding on this exemplar to be robust and and spirited. LOA from MEARS, A5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
