Default Brett Favre's 1st Vikings' Card...

Will be released exclusively in blaster boxes and packs at Target and Wal-Mart...for those that care. I just hope they don't bring some crazy value just because it's the first...

The announced print run will be 4,444 so it doesn't deserve any type of premium IMO...

It will be just like last year with his Jets uni. Start out hot then cool off. Seeing him in that jersey still looks weird. I'm gonna have to get one and put it on my dresser just to get used to it.

They will probably go for $10-15 right out of the gate, $5-10 by mid-season, and $2-5 by the end of the season. Thats about what his first Jets card did, and those weren't short printed at all.

Yeah I remember Favre's LCM base card last season selling for $10-$15 out of the gate. Mind you, he is in a Jets t-shirt in that card...

I wonder how many of the 4,444 will be left after Packers fans get their hands on them?

With today's technology, you could easily buy a card, and have it enlarged to use as a dartboard, or put it on a punching bag, etc...

BTW I still want to know how companies can pull off products like Prestige, which comes out weeks after the draft, something like this, (that pic is from the preseason game on Thursday), and then it takes them forever to fulfill (if they do at all) redemptions.
