A new exhibit honoring Pro Football Hall of Famer Brett Favre will open Wednesday morning in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame at Lambeau Field.
Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy and Packers Hall of Fame president Perry Kidder will lead a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the exhibit at 9 a.m. Fans will be able to access the exhibit as soon as the ceremony is over.
The exhibit includes a look at his most memorable performances. There’s a display about his 297 consecutive starts — an NFL record — and another about his 40 game-winning drives for the Packers. Included is a rundown of every Packers player who ever caught a touchdown pass from the gunslinger.
“We look at every Packer that’s every caught a touchdown from Brett Favre. So it’s 442 touchdowns. At that time, that was an NFL record,” said Brett Hensel, curator, Packers Hall of Fame. “We look at 40 of Brett Favre’s game winning drives that led to comeback victories for the Packers. We have a little tribute to his induction at Canton.”
Fans will also see the locker Favre used at Lambeau Field until the 2003 stadium renovation.
“Every game before he would go out to play he had his ankles wrapped. That’s what the spats are. He would make a prediction of what he thought his stats would be for the game and then the score of the game. We have those on display. It’s kind of a unique, interesting story,” Hensel said.
The Packers say it also pays tribute to his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, earlier this month.
Favre was inducted into the local Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame in July of last year.
The Favre exhibit is open to everyone with admission to the Packers Hall of Fame in the Lambeau Field atrium.
The Hall of Fame is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
