Boca Juniors world-beater Diego Armando Maradona wore this blue and yellow Boca shirt during the 1981 Metropolitano tournament of the Argentine Primera Division. At the time, the Argentine league was split into two tournaments, the Metropolitano and the Nacional, with Maradona leading Boca to their 20th league title in the 1981 Metropolitano tournament in his first campaign with the Argentine giants. Maradona, a lifelong Boca supporter, transferred to the Buenos Aires club from Argentinos Juniors for a stratospheric $4 million fee before the 1981 season. He would play two seasons for Boca before earning a transfer to Spain’s Barcelona, winning his only Primera Division title in 1981 by a single point over Ferro Carril Oeste. Maradona and Boca began the campaign with an emphatic 4-1 win over Talleres, with season highlights including an electrifying 3-0 win over hated rivals River Plate on April 10th, 1981. Boca clinched their 20th title with a 1-1 draw against Racing Club in the final game of the season, with Maradona scoring a penalty kick for Boca’s lone goal. In total, Maradona scored 28 goals in 40 appearances during his first stint with Boca Juniors.

This offered Boca Juniors jersey is blue, with a yellow stripe across the chest and three yellow Adidas stripes on each sleeve. Maradona’s number “10” is printed on the back of this historic jersey in white numerals. A yellow Adidas trefoil logo is sewn on the right chest. An Adidas size “42” tag is sewn on the back inside collar. This incredible artifact, from Maradona’s lone title season with Boca, is accompanied by a LOA from MEARS (317606), as well as a letter of provenance from Viviana Brown.
