Add another exhibit to the "Drew Brees" wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The game ball and other items from Monday night's history-making game are already on their way to Canton.

"His jersey, his pants, socks, cleats, and that'll all be on display shortly, by Wednesday or Thursday of this week," said Saleem Choudhry of the Hall of Fame. 

Choudhry says Brees' accomplishments have already contributed a lot to the hall.

"Just a couple of weeks ago, you may remember, he set the all-time career completion mark," in the Saints' 43-37 win over Atlanta, said Choudhry. "We have that ball already on exhibit."

Choudhry says they also have the ball from when Brees broke Johnny Unitas' record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass, and Brees' Super Bowl XLIV jersey.

Brees' bust is destined for the Hall of Fame, but many citizens of the Who Dat Nation hope Brees will be able to delay his eligibility for as long as possible (professional football players become eligible for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame five years after retirement).
