Dennis Bergkamp PFA Player of the Year Shirt
PFA signed shirts
Arsenal and Holland legend Denis Bergkamp was the club's top goal-scorer with 22 goals in 1997/98 and the PFA Players' Player of the Year, becoming only the second foreign player to be recognised by his fellow professionals as the outstanding performer in English football.
Bergkamp helped Arsenal win 3 Premiership titles and 4 FA Cups. He represented the Netherlands finishing his international career top of the all-time list of goal scorers for the Dutch national team, with 37 goals in 79 games. Bergkamp was selected by Pele as one of the FIFA 100 greatest living players and is widely regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest players. In 2007, he was inducted into the FIFA Hall of Fame, the first and so far only Dutch player ever to receive such honour, and also finished third in the FIFA World Player of the Year award twice.
Afghan Heroes have been donated this official Professional Footballers Association framed and signed shirt, which has been valued and is estimated to be worth up to £10,000. This shirt was made as part of a collection spanning from the inaugural PFA awards in 1974 to 1997 when the PFA celebrated their centenary.
Only four sets of the shirts have been made, or will ever be made:
• The PFA own the first set • The second set was sold at an auction held at the PFA Centenary banquet in Manchester, with the proceeds contributing towards the PFA's charitable causes • Shirts from the third set were presented by the PFA to the respective Footballer of the Year. • The fourth and remaining set is now being offered for public raffle with proceeds going to charities.
The shirt is made in halved colours of the player's club and country, wire woven gold and silver official Club badges matched with the official badge of their Country. It has the winning player’s signature digitised and embroidered on the shirt between the badges, mounted on gold board within an archival quality sealed frame above a printed player profile personally signed by the Footballer of the Year. Two photographs; one portraying the player in match action, the other a portrait of the footballer receiving the PFA trophy. To complete the framed shirts the logos of the PFA Centenary year and the manufacturers 4 Club & Country Ltd are included. The shirt has a separate certificate of authenticity signed by Gordon Taylor, CEO of the PFA.
