A faded Tom Brady autograph sparked a lawsuit regarding an American flag that had been loaned to the Patriots. What better way to fix the problem than to have Brady simply sign it again?

Via TMZ.com, that’s precisely what happened.

Per the report, the Patriots helped arrange for Brady to re-sign the flag. The owner of the flag, Daniel Vitale, had loaned the item to the Patriots for display at the team’s Hall of Fame. Vitale claimed that the team mishandled the flag, allowing the signature to fade.

Vitale said that the signature is now four times larger than the original one, and that he believes it’s likely worth much more than the original appraised value of $1 million.

Maybe that should be Brady’s post-football career. He can resolve civil lawsuits from coast to coast by simply signing something for the plaintiff.

  1. It’s not the original signature. The new signature is in different color sharpie next to the faded original. It really doesn’t look that great. Maybe I’m crazy but i don’t see how the value of the piece stays the same, much less increase.

    It most certainly is an original signature. Brady physically signed the flag. It is not his first signature on it, but it is definitely original.

    I usually cringe at Mikes “humor” but you’re right. That last paragraph is hilarious

    He would be a lot better than some mediators I have worked with.

  5. A signature on a flag makes it worth a million dollars??? Give me a break. I have a Drew Brees signature on my hat. Guess that makes the hat worth at least a half million. We need to take a step back from this lunacy.

  6. I would bet dollars to donuts that the only reason he kent the flag to the Patriots for display so he could include that history in his marketing of the item.

    He’s lucky I wasn’t picked for that jury and that it didn’t go to trial.

  7. Brady now just lives in the NFL world for money.Texas is Investigating Tom Brady for an alleged FTX ‘Ponzi Scheme’. Tommy intends to remain relevant off the field for years to come. But the kind of people he has surrounded himself with are criminals, shysters, and cons. Sad legacy for the GOAT.
