He's the favorite target of the greatest quarterback of all time, and they'll one day share Canton immortality to go along with their fistfuls of Championship rings. Like Ruth and Gehrig, Gronk and Brady are the ultimate odd couple--one goofy and gregarious, the other deadly serious, but so massively effective together that it hardly seems fair. Whether in the prime of New England or the twilight of Tampa, the immortal pairing showcased they could bring championship results wherever they went.

The offered jersey was worn by Gronk in his final season of 2021 during an exciting and memorable overtime win against the Bills. The game saw Gronkowski register 5 receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown, including a key reception on the game's winning drive in OT.

Game use is tremendous--it's exactly the kind of wear you hope to find from a guy famous for his hard-nosed style of play. Tons of grass stains and scuff markings along the front and back numbers. The Buccaneers' red color scheme features red, white and orange number "87" on front, back and shoulders, with "Gronkowski" in white block across rear nameplate. Interior collar holds "NFL/Nike [size] 44" label with "2020" flag (though worn during 2021 season) and a "+4 length flagging as well. The former tells us that this is a shell carried over from the previous season, the latter that the sky-high Gronk needed extra body length to his jersey. A handwritten notation on the tagging--likely done by a lockeroom attendant--confirms that date and opponent.

The heavy soiling and scuffing to this coveted jersey not only give it great visual appeal, but also help to confirm exact game usage for John Robinson and the photomatching experts at Resolution Photomatching.

Gronk jerseys are rare and desirable in any form, and to date, this is the first Tampa Bay jersey worn by Gronk that has ever surfaced in the public domain. Impressive! Accompanied by a full Letter of Photomatching from Resolution Photomatching and a full Letter of Authenticity for the autograph from Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
