Brett Favre “Gunslinger” Ltd. Edition Portrait Jersey
Own a piece of football history with this incredibly unique collectable jersey which has been crafted from a jersey worn by Brett Favre. Fibers from a game worn jersey throughout the fabric, individual serial number and QR code records your ownership.
This limited series of collector’s jerseys has been crafted from a jersey worn by Brett Favre on November 1, 2001 against Atlanta at Green Bay and on December 9, 2001 against Chicago at Green Bay. Favre’s stats during those two games were 3 TD’s and he passed for 469 yards. But the real significance of those games was that this is the only jersey that was worn in games against the team that first drafted him AND his arch rivals from Chicago. The Limited Edition Collectors Series have been handcrafted using fibers extracted from this twice game worn jersey to capture a piece of history for fans.
The jersey is made with our unique mid weight (7.7 ounce) fabric, 92.5% polyester/7.5% nylon. The nylon yarns contain the fabric from the game worn jersey and is knit throughout the entire body of the jersey. The feint, fine lines in the fabric are the visible confirmation that the jersey contains the original on-field nylon.
Your ownership of this item is secured by recording your name as the owner of this jersey in your own, on-line vault at authenticheroes.com/vault. Scan the QR code on your jersey and you can go to your secure on-line vault where your title to the jersey is recorded along with a Letter of Authenticity for the original jersey used to make this series.
The durable double stitch seams lay flat against the body should you choose to wear your collectible jersey. The jerseys are hand sewn in Pennsylvania by a company with a reputation for sewing for MLB, collegiate and high school sports.
The portrait was created by Tommy Alderson, a graphic artist from North Carolina. The portrait along with all of the graphics have been reproduced in fine and enduring detail through the use of dye sublimation printing. This preserves the excellent hand of the garment.
The tackle twill name and numbers are embroidered onto the garment giving the jersey a quality look and feel.
The Authentic Heroes logo emblem at the neckline has a holographic feature that allows the lettering to alternate between AUTHENTIC HEROES AND BRETT FAVRE.
Original artwork depicting Brett Favre back to throw, is featured on the front of this very unique set of jerseys. Authentic Heroes commissioned artist Tommy Aldinger to capture Favre in action for this limited series.
On the back of the “Gunslinger” jersey series, so named for Favre’s nickname, Favre’s name, number and his career overall stats appear:
TDS – 508
YDS – 71,838
RTG – 86
Career Season Games – 302
3 Time MVP
1997 Super bowl XXXI Champions
2016 Hall of Fame Induction
In addition, you’ll find the classic Favre quote, “Every game I have ever played, regardless if it was pre-season or Super Bowl, meant the same to me, and I laid it all on the line.”
Authentic Heroes has partnered with the Football Greats Alliance, whose logo also appears on the jersey. One thing that partnership means is that a portion of proceeds will go to the Greater Good Fund, which supports retired football players.
These commemorative jerseys are limited in amount; once the material from the original has been used to make the collector’s series, no more can be made.
