“It will be on eBay soon, I guess.”

Shortly after the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons during overtime at Sunday’s Super Bowl game, Tom Brady noticed that his game-winning Patriots jersey was not in the locker room where he left it.

USA Today reports that Brady, quarterback for the Patriots, appeared perplexed while searching for his lucky jersey in a Houston, Texas, locker room at the NRG Stadium, after he helped his team win their fifth Super Bowl. He called in his managers and stadium security staff to help him locate it.

“It was right here. I know exactly where I put it.”

Brady asked several other players to help him search for missing No. 12 jersey, including Backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but no matter how deeply the players searched, the jersey was nowhere to be found.

“This is not good,” Brady said. “It was right here and now I don’t have it. Not good.”

Brady finally gave up and exited the locker. He jokingly told reporters that the jersey “is going to be on eBay soon.”  Patriots owner Robert Kraft agreed, and said Brady should probably look online soon.
