United States midfielder Michelle Akers wore this uniform during the United States Women’s National Soccer Team’s victory over China in the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics women’s soccer tournament and has been photo matched. This was the first time women’s soccer was contested on the Olympic level. The Stars and Stripes beat China 2-1 in the final after goals from Shannon MacMillan and Tiffeny Milbrett powered the USA to gold. Akers played all 90 minutes of the final in midfield, instigating attacks and protecting her defensive line with trademark intensity. Akers scored one goal in the tournament, a crucial penalty conversion in the semifinals against Norway that preceded MacMillan’s golden goal winner.

This offered uniform consists of a white USWNT home jersey and shorts, both worn and signed by Akers. The jersey is white, with red and navy accents on the collar and shoulders and a USWNT crest sewn on the chest. Akers’ number “10” is sewn on the chest and back in navy and red tackle twill. “AKERS” is sewn across the back shoulders in blue tackle twill. A Nike swoosh is sewn on the right sleeve and a Nike size “L” tag is sewn on the front left tail. Akers signed the “0” digit on the back of the jersey in silver marker, inscribing “#10 USA” and “1996 Olympics Gold Medal / First Ever Womens Soccer Comp” in addition to her signature. The shorts are white, with a red and navy border on the legs. Akers’ number “10” is sewn on the right leg in navy and red tackle twill, while a Nike swoosh is sewn on the left leg. Akers has signed the “0” digit on the shorts in silver marker. This uniform has been photo matched by Sports Investors Authentication to the 1996 Olympic Gold Medal Game and also comes with a LOA signed by Michelle Akers. A portion of the proceeds shall benefit the Michelle Akers Horse Rescue & Outreach Inc.
