Hand numbered limited edition #17 of only 25 produced. Authenticated by Steiner Sports, with their holograms on the ball and certificate of authenticity. IMPORTANT NOTE: Steiner did two versions of this team ball, a non-limited edition signed in blue marker, and this one. Blue marker typically fades to light aqua on white soccer balls in less than a year! Gold paint is PERMANENT and will NEVER fade! All the signatures are on one side of the ball for display purposes. NOTE: the Overbeck and Sobrero signatures were moderately smudged resulting in gold paint spots on the right sides of their signatures.
