Franz Beckenbauer autograph
12x8 inch colour photo signed in person by Franz Beckenbauer, West Germany.
Beckenbauer is generally regarded as the greatest German footballer of all time and one of the greatest and most decorated footballers in the history of the game. Twice selected European Footballer of the Year, Beckenbauer appeared 103 times for West Germany and played in three World Cups. He is one of only two footballers, along with Brazil's Mário Zagallo, to have won the World Cup both as a player and as a coach. He is the only one to win it as captain and coach: He lifted the World Cup trophy as captain in 1974, and repeated the feat as a manager in 1990. With the club Bayern Munich, he won the Cup Winners' Cup in 1967 and three consecutive European Cups from 1974 to 1976. The latter feat made him the only player to win three European Cups as captain of his club.
