Tom Brady's game-worn Super Bowl jersey is still missing and now, it's an even bigger deal.

FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:

Houston police are placing the value on the missing jersey at $500,000, according to a police report released Tuesday. That makes the theft a first-degree felony.

The morning after his Super Bowl 51 victory, Brady told reporters the jersey went missing from the locker room during celebrations:

(Brady) "I put it in my bag and then I came out and it wasn't there anymore. So, it's unfortunate cause that's a nice piece of memorabilia. So if it shows up on Ebay somewhere, someone let me know. Try and track that down."

The theft of any property worth more than $200,000 qualifies as a first-degree felony in Texas, with a punishment of 5-to-99 years or life in prison, with a fine of up to $10,000.
