A football jersey that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wore in an NFL game has sold for $46,000 at an auction in Indianapolis.

Hunt Auctions says an anonymous bidder bought the 2011 game jersey at The Super Bowl XLVI Live Auction in Indianapolis on Saturday, tripling the item's presale estimated value.

Brady wore the jersey during the Oct. 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Patriots are facing the New York Giants in the Super Bowl on Sunday in Indianapolis.

In its fourth year, the auction is an annual event produced by Pennsylvania-based Hunt Auctions in partnership with NFL Auction and the NFL Players. A portion of the auction proceeds benefit NFL Charities.
