The uniform worn by Brett Favre on December 16, 2007, when he surpassed Dan Marino to become the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards.
More Brett Favre memorabilia has arrived at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
The uniform - including the jersey, helmet, shoulder pads, and socks - worn by Favre when he became the NFL's all-time leader in passing yardage last season is now on display. Favre broke Dan Marino's record for passing yards with a 7-yard completion to Donald Driver early in the fourth quarter of the Packers' 33-14 victory over the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome on Dec. 16, 2007.
Favre retired with 61,655 career passing yards. Marino's previous record was 61,361.
The uniform is on display next to the football Favre threw to Greg Jennings for his 421st career touchdown pass, breaking Marino's mark of 420. That TD pass came 2 1/2 months earlier, on Sept. 30, 2007, at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, in a 23-16 victory over the Vikings. Favre finished his career with 442 touchdown passes.
Also on display is the jersey Favre wore on Nov. 17, 1999, at Lambeau Field against the Chicago Bears, when he started his 117th consecutive game. That day Favre broke the previous record for NFL quarterbacks, held by Ron Jaworski, and Favre retired with his streak of 253 consecutive starts (275 including playoffs) in tact.
Favre, who announced his retirement March 6 after 17 NFL seasons, including 16 with the Packers, is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013.
