Match issued Juventus 2006-2007 long-sleeved home shirt for number #11 Pavel Nedvěd in the Serie B.
After playing at Lazio for 5 years, Nedved moved to Juventus in 2001. In his period in Turin (2001-2009), he played almost 250 matches for Juventus. He became Serie A league champions in the first two seasons at the club. In the 2002-03 season, Juve lost in the UEFA Champions League final to AC Milan. Nedved was part of the Czech Republic national football team between 1994 and 2006. On 22 December 2003, Nedved was awarded the Ballon d’Or for best football player who played on the European pitches. In this 2006-07 season, Juventus finished first in the Serie B.
The shirt does not have the official Serie B logo patch present on the right sleeve. Furthermore, this shirt almost has an entire black backside, which not the case throughout the season. The back was black/white vertical striped during the Serie B and Coppa Italia matches. Therefore, it may be a prototype model for the season or they played a friendly or pre-season match in this shirt. One thing is certain: it is a player shirt! On 10 January 2006, Del Piero overtook Boniperti to become the club’s all-time top goalscorer. At the end of the year, in the 2006-07 season, Del Piero wore this exact shirt model when he and Boniperti celebrated this achievement together (see photos 8 and 9).
This shirt has all the characteristics of a match shirt: the correct player size number and name in plastic are printed on the shirt; there is a black area on the back where the name/number set are present (not present on fanshop shirts); there’s no “Nike Sphere Dry” text next to the Nike swoosh above the size label in the neck and there are no internal labels, which are both present in the commercially available fanshop shirt version.
Size: XXL (Nedved frequently wore L and XL)
