You think it matters whether you send Packers' or Vikings' stuff? In the long run I think a Packers' card would make more sense. Thinking I might have no choice but to send a request out. I AM in Packers' country up here in Wisconsin after all...

I wonder if Brett is signing because of all the allegations surrounding him. Either way, I think its great he signs for all of us die hard fans. I, personally dont care if he text some girl stuff. I think athletes shouldnt be judged on their off the field issues. We pay money for tickets and merch because of their talents between the lines. Although I would hope they would set an example and be a good role model. Which I think Brett has done. I hope he signs all your cards. Best of luck.

-Coach

True. Either way, I think he has had an outstanding career and wish him and his fam the best of luck in the Future. I wouldnt mind seeing him on ESPN as a Commentator.

I think its PR work to be honest. The guy went from being the NFLs darling to a redheaded stepchild (no offense to any gingers out there). I am going to unleash the wrath of god on his mailbox until I get some RTS from him. I might start sending from multiple addresses. I have a mailbox at the high school I teach at, but we are supposed to keep personal mail out of there. Screw it. I might even send them from my buddies houses all over the state and change the last name on them. I love favre as an athlete, and my hats off to him for sending pics of his hog. That chick was hott, and he is doing everything I wish I could do.

Fact.

I think I sent 2 Vikings cards, not sure which 2 though.

I know before I sent them out, I ran thru a whole bunch of common cards to see which cards had the best possible chance of getting a bubble free and smudge free signature.

I figured I have 1 shot at this and I didn't want to send something that would come back all smudged up.

ALSO...I sent my request in a bigger 8 x 10 rigid envelope and put my letter, sase and cards in a smaller #10 envelope inside. Big bold RED letters on the outside of the envelopes stating "DONATION ENCLOSED"....heck I even put tracking on it!! LOL!!

I wasn't taking a chance! LOL!

HATTIESBURG??? Thought you guys were sending to his foundation in Eden Prairie? BTW Joe if you were REALLY brave you would send it Certified or with Signature Confirmation. Maybe Favre himself would happen to sign for it!

Oh crap. Did I send to the wrong place? I found the address on the Fourward Foundation site. Oh crap. Oh Crap.

I sent it to:

Brett Favre
C/O Fourward Foundation
1 Willow Bend Dr
Hattiesburg, MS 39402-8552

Oh Crap.

BTW...I thought about sending it Certified or with Signature Confirmation...but that was too much $$ LOL!!!

Nah, looks like that's the correct address. Not sure where I saw something about a foundation address in Minnesota.

Garpike, can he legally cash your check and not send you anything? I mean there is not contract or anything, it's more like a donation instead of you straight up buying auto(s)?

The foundation cashed it, but I suppose they could not send anything but I DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THAT!!!
