The Green Bay Packers will commemorate future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre yet again in 2016. Fresh off his jersey retirement last November, Favre will now have his name unveiled in the ring of honor on the Lambeau Field facade during a halftime ceremony against the Dallas Cowboys on October 16.
And for fans hoping to be on hand for the festivities in October, they'll be paying up for Packers tickets on the secondary market. Following the news of Favre's latest career milestone Monday evening, Packers tickets against the Cowboys jumped in both average price and get-in price. On Monday afternoon, tickets to the Week 6 game were averaging $678.37 on TicketIQ. The average price has increased 31.4% since and now sits at a hefty $891.67.
If looking just to get past the gates at Lambeau on October 16, the cheapest tickets are now listed from $304 in Section 132, Row 35. That marks an 11.3% jump from Monday's get-in price of $273. It will be the most expensive Packers home game this season.
Favre will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio on August 6. He'll be joined by fellow inductees Marvin Harrison, Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Orlando Pace, Eddie DeBartolo, Kenny Stabler and Dick Stanfel.
