NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A historic time in the history of NFL quarterbacking is saluted in Catch Dat Brees, a limited edition which pairs the New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees with the famous Warner Bros. Looney Tunes characters.

The limited edition Catch Dat Brees art salutes the second time in NFL history that a quarterback, Brees, has eclipsed the 5,000-yard passing threshold. The Brees Dream Foundation will benefit from sales of Catch Dat Brees, a numbered fine art lithograph or hand-painted cel limited edition, both personally signed by Drew Brees.

This limited edition sets another record. "I am honored to be the first football player to be featured in a Warner Bros. animated fine art lithograph and cel," said Drew Brees. "I love this art and I'm excited for my son to see his Dad throwing a pass to Bugs Bunny."

The art depicts Drew completing the pass to Bugs Bunny for this colorfully captured moment in sports. Notice that Daffy Duck has just finished turning the 50-yard line into the "5000" yard line. "Bugs Bunny is wearing Billy Miller's number since Billy caught the pass that put us over 5,000 yards," said Drew. "This could not have been accomplished without my teammates, coaches, fans, and of course, the great city of New Orleans."

"I get to play a fun role in this piece as I'm immortalized as the one and only Bugs Bunny," said Billy Miller. "Catching the pass that put Drew over the 5,000 yards mark means a lot to me and helping him raise funds for The Brees Dream Foundation, our team and the city really brings it all home."

Catch Dat Brees is the first animated Warner Bros. sports limited edition to feature an athlete in nearly a decade. Drew joins an elite group of sports legends including Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, and Derek Jeter who have all been featured in a Warner Bros. Looney Tunes limited edition presented by Broadman Fine Arts, Inc.

"I am so proud of Drew and our family is very fortunate to be a part of this great city," said Brittany Brees, Drew's wife. "The Brees Dream Foundation is committed to providing care, education and opportunities for children, and this wonderful project with Warner Bros. is a part of our ongoing efforts in New Orleans."

Catch Dat Brees was created using the traditional process of animation, is hand-drawn and hand-painted, making this art truly exceptional. Each numbered limited edition is personally signed by Drew Brees, custom framed, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
