The difference is... the tables have turned. Back then, I always felt confident that the Packers would handle their business... especially if they were playing at Lambeau Field. However in the last sixteen months they've gone 0-3 against the red and gold.
So today, I figured I'd bring back some of that old school 90's mojo with my first Sports Card Trifecta in eleven months.
Brett Favre helped turn the Green Bay Packers franchise around and he quickly became a fan favorite. He became my favorite. He was the centerpiece of my football collection for many, many years. In fact when I sold off my collection in 2001, I held onto several Favres for sentimental reasons.
Now I'm not going to lie... it was hard to like him those two seasons he wore a Minnesota Vikings jersey. But thankfully, those days are behind him.
And today I present to you my Brett Favre Sports Card Trifecta:
Memorabilia Card: 2008 UD Masterpieces "Captured on Canvas" #CC11
Rookie Card: 1991 Stadium Club #94
Autographed Card: 2006 Sweet Spot #36
During the 90's, Favre led the Packers to a 6-1 record against the 49ers. And although I'm not too superstitious... I'm hoping Favre and this post can bring a little luck to Rodgers and company... because they're going to need all the help they can get if they want to take down one of the best teams in the league.
Go Pack Go!
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
