John Barnes PFA Player of the Year Shirt
PFA signed shirts
Liverpool and Engand legend John Barnes made 586 club career appearances scoring 183 goals, and in a 10 year stint with Liverpool winning several trophies. Barnes scored 15 league goals in his first season at Anfield and was voted overwhelmingly PFA Player Of The Year. Many observers on and off the pitch saw him as the most devastating player in a team many regarded as Liverpool's most exciting of all time.
Barnes played for England winning 79 caps and scored 11 goals for England including the famous goal against Brazil. He scored one of the most breathtaking individual goals ever seen, when he outpaced and out-thought several Brazilian defenders before rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into an empty net at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio.
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.
