Bret Favre's memorabilia collection leads annual Super Bowl auction
Memorabilia from the personal collection of Bret Favre will cross the auction block next month, as part of the annual Super Bowl sale hosted by Hunt Auctions and NFL Auction.
The Hall of Fame quarterback has consigned items from his long career to support his Favre 4 Hope Foundation, which to date has raised more than $8 million for charities throughout Mississippi and Wisconsin.
"The memories that I have during my football career, especially involving the fans of the Green Bay Packers, are priceless to me," said Favre.
"While my family and I are blessed to have many items from my career to keep and cherish I am very happy to share some of my memorabilia with the fans who have been so supportive all these many years."
Leading the collection is Favre's 1996 Jim Thorpe Most Valuable Player Award, which comes with an estimate of $100,000-$200,000. The award was presented during a season in which he led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XXXI, and completed a career-high record of 39 touchdown passes.
Favre will offer a number of rare items from the remarkable 1996 season, with notable lots including his Player of the Year MVP Award estimated at $30,000-$50,000; a Green Bay Packers game worn jersey valued at $15,000-$25,000; his Super Bowl XXXI Presentational game ball, estimated at $20,000-$40,000; his autographed Super Bowl XXXI Professional Model back up helmet, priced at $20,000-$40,000; and a pair of autographed game worn Green Bay Packers cleats, estimated at $7,500-$10,000.
Further highlights from the collection include a complete game-worn Green Bay Packers uniform from the 2006 season, estimated at $25,000-$50,000; Favre's 1995 Offensive Player of the Year Award, estimated at $10,000-$20,000; and his 1995 Sporting News Player of the Year Award by Tiffany & Co., estimated at $10,000-$20,000.
"We are honored to continue our relationship with NFL Auction with our annual Super Bowl Live Auction event," said David Hunt, President Hunt Auctions.
"This year's event promises to be an exceptional auction highlighted by an incredible grouping of items from the personal collection of Brett Favre. We applaud the charitable work that Favre 4 Hope and NFL Auction conduct and are humbled to be a small part of that process."
The Hunt Auctions Super Bowl sale takes place on February 4 at the NFL Experience Driven by Genesis, located at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
