For a guy that was one of the most popular players to ever play in the NFL, and certainly among the most collectible, you'd think retirement tribute items would be flowing right now.

You know, Brett Favre photos on beautiful plaques and signed jerseys with his lifetime statistics sewn into them.

But aside from a Sports Illustrated tribute and some homemade T-shirts, there's nothing out there. Why?

Well, a source tells me that the NFL Players Association informed licensees that it was Favres wish not to have any items say the words retirement on it. A NFL Players Association marketing representative could not be reached for comment. [url=index.php?name=Pro_News&aid=47]full article[/url].
