Sports, Brady’s representatives, filed an application to trademark the phrase. This
was confirmed in a document by the US Patent and Trademark Office. This
trademark was filed on a 1b basis. In other words, it indicates an intent to
use for commerce. Brady is planning his future. This was a rather bold move.
His filing states the trademark is sought for use on “Clothing,
namely, shirts, t-shirts, pants, shorts, sweatshirts, sweaters, jerseys,
sleepwear, athletic tops and bottoms, and headwear.”
“TB x TB” refers to the initials Brady shares with his new team. The Bucs have used it recently. They were just bragging around. They have a new quarterback after all. Yes, they have the best quarterback in league history.
Brady has a long history of leveraging on his football success to sell apparel and other items. TB12 sells fitness gear, workout supplements and other branded products. They also operate a chain of fitness centers.
Tom Brady has a history of filing for a trademark
In 2019, Brady tried to trademark the phrase “Tom Terrific.” However, he was hit with a dose of criticism from fans. These people associate the nickname with New York Mets great Tom Seaver. Brady’s application was rejected and that story is over.
The six-time Super Bowl champion will have earned more than $285 million in his lucrative career. Brady ranks among the top-earning players in league history. However, he isn’t the highest-paid quarterback. But, Brady doesn’t mind any of that. He is fine with the idea of earning less money than other quarterbacks. Gisele brings the bacon to the household, remember? But, his deal with the Bucs is really thick. Brady will earn $60 million in two years. That’s not something you underestimate. Will Brady launch a new line? He is definitely off to something.
