This wonderful Argentina shirt was signed by football legend Diego Maradona during an official private autograph session in Buenos Aires. Each signed shirt is supplied with an official certificate of authenticity, which demonstrates that the signature is 100% authentic.
Approx. dimensions: 34.5 (H) x 24.5 (W) x 1 (D) inches.

Nicknamed El Pibe de Oro (the golden boy), he is considered one of the greatest footballers of all time.

In a professional career of more than twenty years, he played in Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Newell’s Old Boys. With the Argentine national team he participated in four World Cups (1982, 1986, 1990 and 1994), winning the 1986 tournament as a protagonist; the 91 matches played and the 34 goals scored in the national team became two records, which were subsequently beaten. Against England in the quarter-finals of Mexico 1986 he scored a goal considered the goal of the century, three minutes after a goal scored with his hand (known as “mano de Dios”), another episode for which he is often remembered.

He was never able to enter the Golden Ball rankings because until 1994 the award was reserved for European players: for this reason in 1995 he won the Golden Ball for career achievements. However, he received many other individual awards and he shares with Pelé the official FIFA award for Best Player of the 20th century. In 2012 he was awarded Best Footballer of the Century.
