Barcelona 1999-00 player shirt by Nike believed to have been issued to Bogarde for the 1999-00 season.
After 3 years as a defensive stalwart for the great Ajax side that won the Champions League in '95 and reached the Final again the year after, Bogarde moved to the Nou Camp via AC Milan in January '98 and picked up a La Liga and Copa del Rey double as well as the Super Cup in his first season.
The centre back unfortunately missed most of the 98-99 campaign through injury though which was the first season that Nike produced kits for Barca and they surpassed themselves with this superb special edition shirt which was worn in select matches from January '99 of the season onwards as part of the club's centenary celebrations. This all-time classic design was then used as the club's standard home shirt throughout 99-00 when Bogarde recovered to be a regular again making 35 appearances in all competitions as the side finished runners-up and reached the Champions League Semi Finals. The Dutch international who went to both Euro '96 and France '98 signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2000.
Correct player size print, LFP patch and 1899 1999 sleeve detail professionally heat pressed, no Nike size patch on lower front or label on lower left side, size displayed differently to replica version, comes from the players own personal collection - a signed letter verifying this can be provided.
