Favre jersey a hot sales item

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis-based official merchandiser of Minnesota Vikings gear is anticipating a spike in business that Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson likely wouldn't provide.

MainGate stands to be among the beneficiaries of fabled quarterback Brett Favre's signing with Minnesota this week.

The company's product line includes jerseys, men's and women's T-shirts and one-pint beer glasses -- many emblazoned with the name or the No.4 worn by the 39-year-old Favre during his 16 seasons with the Green Bay Packers sandwiched around one each with Atlanta and the New York Jets.

MainGate president and CEO Dave Moroknek says the company has spent months preparing for Favre's comeback with the Vikings -- fellow QBs Rosenfels' and Jackson's presence on the roster notwithstanding.
