Jari Litmanen’s football jersey
Jari Litmanen was Finland’s first world class football star. In 1995 he won the Champions League with Ajax Amsterdam and placed third in the vote for European Footballer of the Year (Ballon d’Or).
Litmanen wore this number 10 Ajax home shirt in the 1997–98 season, when the club won both the Dutch League and the Dutch Cup. Made by Umbro, the shirt features the logo of Ajax’s main sponsor ABN AMRO, the largest bank in the Netherlands. Litmanen’s signature can be seen on the back of the shirt. Litmanen wore the number 10 shirt in the Finnish national team as well.
