(LOT 171)
2006 Panini World Cup #169 Cristiano Ronaldo - Germany PSA 10 GEM MINT

Across the globe, futball, football or soccer, depending on your geographic location, is the most watched and played sports in the world. Millions of children, no matter their socioeconomic status learn to play every day and the popularity of the game has likely never been greater than now. Currently, there are two players that stand head-and-shoulders above the rest in soccer as Portugal/Juventas' Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina/Barcelona's Lionel Messi mercilessly assault the record books with year after year of spectacular play.

Few players transcend the sport and these two can easily be grouped among their generational equals like Pele, Diego Maradona, Franz Beckenbauer, Johan Cruyff, Zinedine Zidane and more. Offered here is a 2006 Panini World Cup #169 Cristiano Ronaldo – Germany PSA GEM MINT 10. This was Cristiano Ronaldo's first FIFA World Cup appearance for Portugal leading his home country to a fourth place finish. With the increasing values of the modern era cards of premier athletes, it is hard to argue with this tribute to perhaps one of the most heralded players of his time encapsulated in a PSA GEM MINT 10 holder for eternity; forever encasing his greatness!
