Drew Brees broke another record.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback threw a touchdown pass in his 48th consecutive game breaking Johnny Unitas’ record on Sunday.
Brees hit Devery Henderson for a 40-yard pass in the first quarter of the Saints matchup with the San Diego Chargers.
Brees broke the single-season passing yard record last season with 5,476 yards.
The veteran quarterback is one of the most popular players on cardboard. But he has never appeared on a card with Unitas, according to the Beckett database, despite all the wacky combos card companies have put together.
Brees is a tough player to collect as well. He has more than 5,200 cards with 900 of them being autographs. He also has a remarkable 69 Rookies Cards.
Here are Brees’ basic card statistics:
Total value: $89,834
Average value: $19.98
Rookie Cards: 69
