Signed postcard of John Charles the Juventus Footballer

John Charles. This is a fabulous black and white, postcard picture of John Charles the former Juventus footballer. This postcard is one of a limited edition of 250 and shows John Charles “King John” being chaired by supporters after Juventus win the Italian championship in May 1958. In his first season in Italy, Charles was Serie A's top scorer with 28 goals, and was voted player of the season as Juventus won the Scudetto. He played in Turin for five years, scoring 93 goals in 155 matches, winning the scudetto (Italian league championship) three times, and the Italian Cup twice. He was 3rd in the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball) in 1959. Charles was dubbed as ‘Il Gigante Buono’ (The Gentle Giant) during his five seasons with Juventus. The respect Charles earned from Juventus fans was shown when, on the occasion of the club's centenary in 1997 they voted him to be the best-ever foreign player to play for their team. John Charles has provided a fabulous example of his autograph in fine black ink. John Charles played a total of 155 leagues games between 1957 and 1962 scoring 108 goals.
