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.
Original artwork depicting Brett Favre in a celebratory, clenched fist pose, 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 “IronMan” jersey series, so named for Favre’s longevity in the game, Favre’s name, number and key stats related to longevity and persistence appear:
CONSECUTIVE GAME STARTS: Regular season 297, Playoff 24, Total 321
MOST REGULAR SEASON GAMES WITH PASSING OVER 300 YDS: 6
MOST PASSING TD’S FOR A QB OVER 40: 36
MOST PASSING YARDS FOR A QB OVER 40: 5874
In addition, you’ll find the classic Favre quote, “I think my stubbornness, hardheadedness and stupidity is what allowed me to play for 20 years.”
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.
