    2010 Aaron Rodgers Game Worn Green Bay Packers Throwback Helmet--Super Bowl Championship Season.
    For the professional athlete, next to earning a World Championship, there's no feeling quite like redemption. Ask Aaron Rodgers-he knows a thing or two about both. It was a long, steep climb out of the shadow of his predecessor Brett Favre, the most prolific passer in NFL history and the athletic embodiment of the noble Midwestern work ethic for a consecutive games streak that belongs on the shelf next to Ripken and Gehrig's. Many Green Bay fans took the news of a 2008 quarterback change like children of a divorce, with Rodgers in the role of evil stepmother.

    Today, of course, that sentiment is as dead as Curly Lambeau, and Aaron Rodgers tops many sportswriters' lists for the best at his position. While Rodgers graciously acknowledges the value of his three seasons of apprenticeship under The Gunslinger, it's clear that he is no Favre clone, similar only in his coolness under pressure and uncanny knack for dramatic victory. A Super Bowl XLV Championship, for which Rodgers likewise earned the game's MVP Award, officially established the team as his own.

    We believe this to be not only the sole Rodgers game worn helmet to emerge from that NFL Championship season, but the only Rodgers helmet in the hobby, full stop.

    We suspect you've noticed that the chocolate brown Riddell gamer is not the style normally associated with the Pack, but it's a perfect match to their thirty-four to sixteen victory over the San Francisco 49ers on December 5, 2010, a nod to the "leatherhead" era and the 1929 undefeated World Champs.

    But if the Packers' uniforms recalled the pre-war game, Rodgers high-flying attack certainly did not, as he went twenty-one of thirty (21/30) for 298 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a sky-high quarterback rating of 135.1. He'd suffer just a single defeat the next week before stringing together an unbroken chain of six victories, the last coming at Arlington, Texas in Super Bowl XLV.

    The helmet exhibits appropriate wear for a single game's action, with a few small scuffs likely inflicted during one of Rodgers' four sacks or his three rushes. The exterior shell is blank except for four decals on verso: NFL shield, American flag, warning label and an NFL lightning bold indicating Rodgers' helmet as wired for sound. We find the velcro attachment for the monitor inside, as well as a "Rodgers 12" identifier and Packers holographic authentication sticker. This is the first, and possibly last, opportunity to compete for a Rodgers game worn helmet at auction, and what a remarkable specimen to break the drought. Letter from the Green Bay Packers. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
