His name appears near or at the top of just about every career quarterback statistic that exists, but arguably no superlative is quite as impressive as the Gunslinger's iron man streak of 297 regular season starts (and twenty-four more in the postseason), an unbroken chain stretching from September 27, 1992 through December 5, 2010. The presented garment finds him at a towering milestone of 250, already far beyond the ultimate end of the line for the statistic's runner-up, the great Peyton Manning (208). The frigid December 9, 2007 contest at Lambeau Field saw Favre at his veteran best, completing fifteen of twenty-three passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns to record a passer rating of 115.5. The thirty-eight to seven result over the visiting Oakland Raiders would lift the Pack to an eleven-and-two record en route to an eventual NFC North Championship.

This is the green mesh gamer worn in the second half of that decisive victory, exhibiting light but definite wear from a contest in which Favre saw little danger from Raiders pass rushing. We find the wide sleeve cuffs and elasticized bottom hem typical of Favre representations, with his now-retired number "4" applied in white tackle twill to chest, back and shoulders. "Favre" stands in three-inch block across rear nameplate, and the gorgeous Lambeau Field Golden Anniversary patch is applied to upper left chest. Interior collar holds proper "07-52" label.

Favre himself twice attests to the garment's validity, first in the form of a black sharpie inscription on the rear numeral that reads, "Game Used 12/9/07, Raiders 7, Pack 38" below his signature (9/10), and again with a signed letter of provenance. A second letter from esteemed Packers jersey expert Guy Hankel confirms authenticity through photographic and film analysis. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. Letter of provenance from Brett Favre. LOA from Guy Hankel. LOA from Heritage Sports. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
