You know, there just hasn’t been enough written about Brett Favre today.
Here’s something that might not have been brought up. In fact, I’m pretty sure it hasn’t. Favre may be closing in on an autograph deal with Steiner Sports.
Like him or not, Favre stuff will sell in Minnesota (and among Wisconsin loyalists) if he gets off to a good start. He’s always been relatively inexpensive from a buyer’s perspective when compared to other big name players bound for the Hall of Fame. Favre has kept his autograph arrangements fairly small and localized (he had a deal with Ball Four–a small Milwaukee company for years) but might be looking to start amping up the income from the memorabilia market.
I’m guessing he pursued the deal thinking his career might be over, but the price may have gone up now that he’s back in the NFL.
