Packer fans may want to burn it, but a game-worn Brett Favre jersey from his record-breaking game against Green Bay is getting a lot of attention in an online auction.
An autographed purple Minnesota Vikings jersey, worn by Brett Favre in the October 5 game against the Green Bay Packers, is now up for bid on NFL Auctions.
With ten days remaining in the auction, the current high bid is over $12,000.
Favre’s first game against the team he played for from 1992-2007 came on a national stage. In fact, it’s ESPN’s highest-rated Monday night football game this year. Favre threw three touchdowns in leading the Vikings to a win over the Packers at the Metrodome. The game was historic for another reason, too.
By beating the team he suited up for all of those years, Favre became the first player to beat all 32 teams in the NFL.
The jersey is signed on the numerals. Thus far, 42 bids have been registered. The last Favre game-worn Vikings jersey sold in November for $16,000. The game ball used to kick off that night is also in the auction with a current high bid of just over $350.
NFL Auctions recently sold a small number of jerseys from the October 25 Patriots-Buccaneers game in London. Carrying a special patch, the jerseys wre in some demand. Four New England jerseys all sold for more than the highest priced Tampa Bay player jersey.
