Packers get photo of Starr, Favre, Rodgers
The Green Bay Packers are working on how they will make use of photos they took Thanksgiving Day featuring their three Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks together at Lambeau Field.
Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers posed together for photographs in the hours before the Packers’ game against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving night. Starr attended the game to take part in the halftime ceremony to unveil Favre’s retired No. 4 on Lambeau’s north façade.
Though the three didn’t appear together at the halftime ceremony because Rodgers had game responsibilities, they did get together for a photo sometime before the game. The Packers on Wednesday would not say whether they will make the photo available for purchase by the public, though that presumably is one of the reasons they took it.
If they are going to sell the photo, they likely have to work out licensing agreements with all the parties first.
“(We) will be working with the Starrs, Brett and Aaron as to its future use,” said Aaron Popkey, the Packers’ director of public affairs, in a text message Wednesday evening.
Starr’s son, Bart. Jr., said he took his father to Lambeau several hours before the Thanksgiving Day game for photographs with a variety of people. He does not have a copy of the photo featuring the three quarterbacks but is hoping it eventually will be available publicly.
“That would be fabulous if they could do that and get them properly produced and everything,” Starr, Jr., said.
