Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Bogarde in the 1995-96 Champions League campaign. Bogarde spent 3 years as part of the great Ajax team of this era that won the Champions League in '95 and reached the Final again the year after. The defender was ever present in the defence of the Champions League title in this season as the side made it all the way to the Final again before suffering an agonising penalty shoot-out defeat to Juventus in Roma. Louis van Gaal's iconic team had beaten Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund home and away before knocking out Panathinaikos to reach the Final. The left-sided centre back's great form earned him an Oranje debut in this season and he would go on to star at Euro 96 this summer.
