Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Rookie Card. The Dutch legend Johan Cruyff shaped soccer in his iconoclastic image with an unparalleled career on the pitch and in management over the second half of the 20th century. The engine behind Holland’s awe-inspiring Total Football ethos, and later the architect of Barcelona’s rebirth among the global giants of the game as a coach, Cruyff’s three-time Ballon d’Or-winning career has inspired generations of footballers. The silky forward scored more than 300 goals for Ajax, with Amsterdam and the Netherlands flagship national stadium renamed “Johan Cruyff Arena” in his honor.

This breathtakingly rare Palirex Campeoes “Europeus De Futebol” card shows a gorgeous portrait of Cruyff, spelled on the card’s back as “Gruijff,” in Ajax’s recognizable white-and-red kit. Of the 41 examples of this card currently in the PSA population report, this is the only example graded at its tier, with only one graded higher! To further illustrate the historic value of this card, Goldin Auctions proudly sold a NM 7 edition of this card for a staggering $44,280 final sale price, an all-time record for any Cruyff card! A once-in-a-lifetime representation of arguably the most influential European soccer star in the game’s history, in stellar Near Mint to Mint condition.
