Boca Juniors world-beater Diego Armando Maradona wore this blue and yellow Boca shirt during the 7/26/1981 match of the Metropolitano tournament of the Argentine Primera Division. At the time, the Argentine league was split into two tournaments, the Metropolitano and the Nacional, with Maradona leading Boca to their 20th league title in the 1981 Metropolitano tournament in his first campaign with the Argentine giants. Maradona, a lifelong Boca supporter, transferred to the Buenos Aires club from Argentinos Juniors for a stratospheric $4 million fee before the 1981 season. He would play two seasons for Boca before earning a transfer to Spain’s Barcelona, winning his only Primera Division title in 1981 by a single point over Ferro Carril Oeste. In total, Maradona scored 28 goals in 40 appearances during his first stint with Boca Juniors. Maradona won the title using this jersey, making it historic and one of a kind. The match was on 7/26/1981, when Boca Juniors thrashed Colón (Santa Fe) 2-0. This was the second to last match of the tournament which essentially clinched the top seed. This would be the only time Maradona ever won in Argentina. The jersey shoes heavy wear, indicating Maradona could have worn the jersey for multiple matches. Maradona gave the jersey to friend and journalist Héctor Cesar Vitale Silva. Héctor was in charge of the biggest péna for Boca Juniors (péna is a group of fans who followed the team around). Maradona inscribed the jersey “Para Yoyo, Con Carino, Diego” in black felt tip pen. This offered Boca Juniors jersey is blue, with a yellow stripe across the chest and three yellow Adidas stripes on each sleeve. Maradona’s number “10” is printed on the back of this historic jersey in white numerals. A yellow Adidas trefoil logo is sewn on the right chest with the letters C A B J embossed in gold. An Adidas size “42” tag is sewn on the back inside collar. Comes with a MEARS Letter of Authenticity, a James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
