Les Ferdinand PFA Player of the Year Shirt
PFA signed shirts
Les Ferdinand MBE had arguably the best period of his playing career at Newcastle United scoring 84 goals and winning the PFA Player's player of the Year award in 1996. For England, Ferdinand was capped 17 times scoring five goals. He was part of the Euro 96 and 1998 FIFA World Cup squads.
He is the joint fifth highest scorer of all time in the Premier League with 149 goals and he became the first player to score for 6 different Premier League clubs. Ferdinand also scored the 10,000th goal in Premiership history in 2001.
In both of his seasons on Tyneside, Ferdinand collected runners-up medals in the Premier League and he scored 50 goals in only 84 games at Newcastle, forming a successful partnership with Alan Shearer. He is still very highly thought of by Newcastle United and received a standing ovation when he came on as a substitute at Alan Shearer's testimonial - and subsequently scored.
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.
