France-Brazil 98: a Zidane jersey sold for more than $ 100,000 at auction

A Zidane jersey, made for the France-Brazil 98 final, was sold for 108,800 euros at auction on Sunday July 18 in the United States.

108,800 dollars is the price at which one of the jerseys made for Zinédine Zidane  for the 1998 World Cup final against Brazil was sold this Sunday  , Julien’s Auctions announced.

Although the jersey has been authenticated by  Fifa  and Adidas, the auction house was unable to say  whether or not it had been worn by the French footballer  during this final won 3-0 by the Blues, and especially during the first half where Zidane had scored twice.

In October 2018, the Parisian auction company Coutau-Bégarie had to withdraw a few days before its sale, a jersey presented like the one worn by Zizou during France-Brazil, due to doubts about its authenticity. During the sale this weekend, which took place in Beverly Hills and online, the jersey of the French  playmaker  was estimated between 80,000 and 120,000 dollars by Julien’s Auctions.
