    1992 Brett Favre First Game-Winning Touchdown Football, 2nd Career Touchdown Reception. The included letter from Kitrick Taylor is so perfect that we will transcribe it here and allow him to personally recount the story that made him the owner of one of the most significant pieces ever to surface from the Hall of Fame career of Brett Favre:


    To whom it may concern,

    My Greatest Moment

    I can remember in the month of September of 1992, standing on the sidelines as a back-up to Sterling Sharpe. We were playing against the Bengals. It was a very exciting game. Brett Favre had to come in for Don (Majkowski) because Don was injured. Ironically the last minutes of the game, Sterling was injured. He tried to continue but the last 23 seconds of the game he could not go any longer, so I had to come in. We were losing by 6 points so we had to score a touchdown. So the play was called and it was instructed that all wideouts go deep. As I was running my route I looked up and there was not a defender in sight. So at this time I knew that I was going to get the ball. Sure enough here comes the ball and all I can remember was silence and Touchdown Kitrick Taylor, then the crowd going wild.

    I kept the ball as for keep sakes; I even tossed it around a few times, not really knowing that this ball was going to be a part of history and not even knowing that Brett was going to be in the Hall of Fame. After following his career further, I saw what was going to happen, so I started to cherish the ball more, now knowing it is going to be an historic piece of property. So now I can say that this is the ball that was thrown to me by Brett Favre who will be inducted to the Hall of Fame, and this catch is my greatest moment.

    (signed) Kittrick Taylor



    Though a touchdown pass to Sharpe earlier in the game was the first of Favre's record 442 (as of the time of this writing), this second toss is arguably even more famous, seen in countless replays whenever a retrospective of the Packers legends' remarkable career is televised. The thirty-five yard rocket with thirteen seconds remaining in regulation secured a twenty-four to twenty-three victory over the Bengals, and provided an opening chapter to the story of Favre's greatness. The Official NFL ball exhibits a fair amount of wear but remains perfectly displayable. Taylor's black marker autograph appears to have been applied at the time, and is notated "1992 Packers." Favre's gold sharpie autograph dates from years later, and rates a 9+/10. Included is an 8x10" of a jubilant Taylor seconds after his game-winning grab, inscribed, "Hope you enjoy owning this football as much as I enjoyed catching it, September 20, 1992, Kittrick Taylor #85." COA from Favre's marketing company (autograph). LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
