Head back in time to the "Cold War" era, with this c.1980s Karl-Heinz Rummenigge West Germany National Team jersey. Currently the Chairman of Executive Board of FC Bayern München AG, Rummenigge's playing career as a prolific forward came to an end just about the time the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. His tenure with the West German National Team was a lengthy run, from 1976-1986. It was during this period that he presented this team issued jersey to former Brazilian footballer Afonsinho, who made it part of his personal collection. Made by Adidas, this size "L" long-sleeve jersey presents in excellent condition and does not appear to have been used. The front left breast bears a Deutscher Fussball-Bund patch and the Adidas logo is located on the right breast. Rummenigge's uniform number "11" covers a good portion of the back and a factory label is sewn inside the collar.
Accompanying is an LOA signed by Maria Auxiliadora Garcia Reis Castro Decaro, sister of Afonso Celso Garcia Reis, a Brazilian professional footballer better known as "Afonsinho". Printed in Portuguese language, this COA states that this jersey was a gift from Rummenigge to Afonsinho for his personal collection. Also included are photocopies of Maria's and Afonso's identification cards.
