Brett Favre's Hall of Fame display has Vikings jersey, too

Whether Green Bay Packers fans like it or not, there will be a Minnesota Vikings element to Brett Favre's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

There's a No. 4 Vikings jersey hanging in a mock Favre locker at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Favre's locker at the museum also includes a white Packers No. 4, a Packers helmet and several other mementos from his career.

However, before Packers fan spew venom toward Favre like some did when he played for the rival Vikings, it appears he had nothing to do with it.

"The Hall's curatorial staff selects the artifacts for exhibit," Pete Fierle, vice president of communications for the Hall of Fame, told ESPN.com.

According to the Hall of Fame, the Packers jersey is the one Favre wore when he broke the NFL career touchdown pass record. The Vikings jersey is the one he wore when he broke Jim Marshall's NFL record for consecutive starts.

Also within the locker is the inactive sheet from the game that ended Favre's starting streak. Out of 30 million artifacts, the Hall of Fame said it is the lone inactive sheet in the Hall's collection.

The exhibit will be on display during this weekend's induction events. Favre will be inducted Saturday.

"That is an exhibit for the Class of 2016," Fierle said. "There are eight lockers created, one for each enshrinee. They contain artifacts of each Hall of Famer."

Favre spent the final two years of his career with the Vikings (2009-10). He played 16 years with the Packers before they traded him to the New York Jets in 2008.

Favre was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame last summer and had his No. 4 retired in front of a sold-out crowd at Lambeau Field.

"Playing in Lambeau Field, throwing a touchdown in Lambeau Field, certainly running out of the tunnel, there's nothing like it on this earth," Favre said last summer in front of 67,000 people in the stadium for his Packers Hall of Fame induction. Favre then joked about playing at Lambeau as a member of the Vikings.

"I'll say this, I've also run out of that tunnel," Favre told the crowd while pointing toward the path to the visitor's locker room, "and that was scary."

"I'd much rather go out of that tunnel right there," Favre said as he turned toward the Packers' tunnel.
