Tom Brady’s Super Bowl rings displayed at Las Vegas resort


Tom Brady’s Super Bowl rings displayed at Las Vegas resort NFL legend Tom Brady and broadcast great Jim Gray are partnering in Hall of Excellence at Fontainebleau. Updated February 9, 2024 – 2:35 pm Tom Brady won seven Super Bowl rings with the Patriots and Bucs. But as he tells it, they don’t belong in his possession. “Artifacts like those, they don’t belong in closets, they don’t belong hidden away in safes,” Brady said Friday morning during a media event at Fontainebleau Las Vegas. “These rings represent so much more than just accomplishments. They belong to the people.” Specifically, they will “belong” to those visiting Fontainebleau’s Hall of Excellence. The display of Brady’s personal items is planned to open by July, on the hotel’s second level. Sportscasting great Jim Gray and his wife, Frann; and The Brady Family Collection are partners in the project.

The rings are set under glass in the resort’s Urs Fischer Gallery, flanked by security guards. In prepared remarks, Brady said participating in Super Bowl weekend events such as this one had a novel appeal. “I’ve never really been to one of these, outside of playing, so it’s new to me,” Brady said from the podium. “It’s pretty new for me, as well, but it’s an exciting time for everyone who is involved in sports to come here. This is a magical weekend, and a magical place with amazing friends.” Post by @johnnykats1 View on Threads Brady said memorabilia from athletic icons such as Muhammad Ali will be part of the future exhibition. “We have a Smithsonian of artifacts, I don’t think Jeff has enough room in this casino to display all of the cool things that we have.” A sports fan since childhood and an avid collector, Gray “scratched” at Brady to collect his most prized personal items for public display. The two are partners in media, on the SiriusXM sports show “Let’s Go!” The Grays have collected and organized dozens of Brady items over the years. Fontainebleau Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Soffer also happens to be Brady’s neighbor in the famed Indian Creek Village in Miami-Dade County. Soffer said Brady’s investment in the Raiders and Aces is an indication of his commitment to Las Vegas. “I think it’s just an opportunity for Tom, who obviously has ties here, he is close to the Raiders and Aces,” Soffer said after the event. “It’s just coincidence that he is out here, and I am out here, and we spend a lot of time together in Las Vegas. He’s going to be a great addition to the city.” Gray said the title of the attraction was inspired by the late Al Davis’ Raiders motto, “Commitment To Excellence.” Gray’s passion for sports has become a long-running partnership with a legend on the Strip. As expected, the broadcast vet is thrilled. “I love what I do,” Gray said. “Because I love what I do, I’ve gotten to meet so many of these folks, like Tom. It’s just been great.” John Katsilometes’ column runs daily in the A section. His “PodKats!” podcast can be found at reviewjournal.com/podcasts. Contact him at jkatsilometes@reviewjournal.com.
