If you thought there were just too many Brett Favre game-worn jerseys floating around, it’s starting to look like you were right.
Everyone wanted something related to Brett Favre during his tenure in Green Bay. For those who had the means, a standard-issue autographed jersey wasn’t enough. They wanted the real deal. Something Favre actually wore in one of those 200+ consecutive games.
At one point, there were so many Favre jerseys in sports memorabilia auctions, it was a little unusual not to see one. Some were legitimate. But the going rate made it tempting for those who can pull off a fake.
One Wisconsin collector found out the Favre jerseys he bought weren’t what was advertised.
It really didn’t take a lot of detective work to find out how bad they really were–but it was easy to believe when Favre himself signed off on more than one as his own game-used gear.
