It would have been one last Favre-powered boost to football card sales. A special ‘retirement’ set or chase card. Unless a certain quarterback said in the immortal words of Lee Corso… not so fast, my friend.
Like smoke signals tinged with mylar wrapping, another tidbit has lent some credence to the story of Brett Favre unretiring.
A source told CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell that Favre relayed to the NFL Players Association that he wasn’t crazy about any tribute or retirement pieces those companies were certainly dying to release. That group would include trading card and other memorabilia licensees.
It’s another Duraflame in the fireplace of crackling Favre rumors.
