Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Brett Favre led the Green Bay Packers to five touchdown drives and a 35-13 victory over his former head coach, Mike Holmgren and the Seattle Seahawks on October 5, 2003, the same game he wore this offered home jersey. Accompanied with an LOA signed by Favre and attesting to its game use, in addition to a "2003 Game Used 10-5-03 Pack 35 Hawks 13" black Sharpie autograph and inscription, this shirt also includes an LOA from highly-regarded Brett Favre/Packers game-worn jersey expert Guy Hankel. Extensively photo and video matched to every attribute of the shirt by Hankel, this piece is unquestionably one of a very small number of authentic gamers worn by the future Hall of Famer that have been offered at auction. All the proper characteristics are featured on this stunning shirt, from the correct "03-52" tag in the neckline (20" from armpit to armpit), Favre's typical custom tail (black snap fasteners, which were put on the jersey for the game and were removed afterwards and replaced by the snap enclosures/photomatched), to the "NFL Equipment" shield in the proper position, this jersey is rock solid. As expected, light, but evident game use is exhibited on this jersey, from a day that Favre barely got touched by the Seahawks' defense in tossing two touchdown passes and handing off to Ahman Green for 118 yards rushing and two more scores.
The jersey comes with Letters of Authenticity from Favre, Hankel, Heritage Auctions and full LOA's from James Spence Authentication and PSA/DNA for the autograph.
