Pro football GOAT Tom Brady retired - then unretired - after the 2021 season. Displayed is a giveaway towel from the game in which Brady received his first NFL action. Brady was a back-up quarterback for the New Egland Patriots as they played in the Thanksgiving Day game at Ford Field against the Detroit Lions. Brady played briefly and completed 1 of 3 passes. His first NFL completion went to tight end Todd Rutledge for a six-yard gain. The Lions won 34-9. The stadium giveaway towel measures 15.5x18.5". It reads, "61st Annual Lions Thanksgiving Day Game/Go Detroit Lions/Lions vs. Patriots November 23, 2005." It has the Detroit Lion logo and the K-Mart logo. Brady was the Patriots' starting quarterback in 2002 and the former sixth round draft choice went on to become a 7-time Super Bowl winner, a 3-time Associated Press MVP, Among the myriad records he holds are: Pass completions (7,262), passing yards (84,520), and touchdown passes (624). The towel is actually scarcer than a ticket to the game, and it is a good remembrance of the day Brady made his pro debut.
