If you’re a fan of the Madden NFL series, there is a slight chance that you already know about the Brett Favre trade this offseason. Aside from making every self-respecting NFL fan cringe at the sight of Favre in a Jets jersey with a roster update, the folks at EA Sports had to do some damage control with their Madden 09 packaging featuring Favre in his old Packers jersey. Currently, EA has a printable copy of the cover featuring the gunslinger in his new uniform available on their website.
For those with less-than-stellar printers, there is another option available. Sam’s Club will print out the optional cover for free with each purchase of Madden 09. That means no hassle with PDFs for you, and professional quality printing as well. Sam’s Club is also offering the game $55.55, which is a decent discount. I really wish I knew about this last night, because I’m currently having sizing problems with EA’s downloadable version of the artwork. Either way, it’s good to know that there are some options available for the perfectionists out there.
