In a storied career full of big-time accomplishments, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima spent just a single season with the Barcelona Football Club, propelling the team to a second place finish in the highly competitive "La Liga" premier Spanish football league. Net a classic keepsake from Ronaldo's brief Barcelona stint, with this 1996-1997 FCB game-used jersey. A vibrant garment produced by Kappa, this size "XL" short-sleeve jersey shows abundant signs of authentic use/wear, including multiple sweat stains and minor fabric piling. When you're as famous as this Brazilian born legend, you get to go by your first name only, as noted on the back with "Ronaldo" lettering and his uniform number "9". A Kappa factory label is sewn inside the collar and the front of the jersey is decorated with Barca's "FCB" logo patch, a Kappa logo patch and the team name is lettered just below the collar at center. Further authenticity is detected by close examination of the jersey's red and blue fabric stripes, which bear ghosted images of the team name Barca alternating with silhouette images of Kappa's logo in the form of two women sitting back to back.
The accompanying 2019 LOA reads, "I, Marcos Moura Teixeira, Brazil National Team Soccer Technical Coordinator, worked in CBF (Football Brazilian Confederation) by 15 years, Real Madrid and other Brazilian club teams, declare that this item belonged my personal collection. This is a Barcelona Match Worn Shirt used by Ronaldo in the Season 1996."
