Favre record ball comes to Canton


The football that Green Bay Packers’ quarterback threw for his record-setting 421st career touchdown is now on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Favre surpassed Hall of Famer Dan Marino as the game’s all-time leading touchdown passer during the Packers’ 23-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings on September 30, 2007.The Hall of Fame’s Vice President – Communications/Exhibits Joe Horrigan waited on the sidelines following the record-setting touchdown pass that occurred with just under five minutes remaining in the first quarter of the Week 4 game. Immediately after connecting with wide receiver Greg Jennings on the touchdown pass, a 16-yarder that put the Packers ahead 7-0, Favre ran to the sideline to celebrate with his wife before handing over the ball to Horrigan.

The ball traveled back to Canton where it was immediately placed on display in the Pro Football Today exhibition area.
