In 1999, the quest for the Patriots to get a new stadium was headed nowhere. After the initial plans fell through in Foxboro, the Pats looked toward Hartford, Connecticut. While Hartford was still in the hunt, the Massachusetts legislature swooped in, endorsing Gillette Stadium back in Foxboro. Cementing in history the “Inaugural Game Day” (9-9-02) at Gillette Stadium is this football presented to front office associate, Bob Denham. It’s an official Wilson NFL (Tagliabue) football commemoratively adorned on one panel and signed (on the same) by owner, Robert Kraft and his son Jamie, in blue felt tip (“6-7” faded). Since Kraft bought the Pats, they have been in the playoffs nine out of thirteen years and have appeared in more playoff games (19) than in their 34-season history. With their undefeated season fresh in memory, this would be the perfect accent to any collection appreciating the Patriots’ rise under Kraft’s regime and the Tom Brady era.
