I may do that at some point... I am mostly a SGC fan, but this card may be destined for a PSA slab.

Default Yep...

Top 10/20/30 of all time is still HUGE... given the number of people who have played the sport over the past century globally! And some do have him in the top 10... so Zidane is certainly "The Man"...

Default Der Kaiser

Beckenbauer is routinely cited as the best defender ever.

IFFHS #3; World Soccer #4, Top End Soccer #4, FIFA Internet #8, FIFA Grand Jury #4.

Worth a read for those who may have interest:

Default Platini

Platini is generally rated as the best French player of all time (generally ahead of Zidane - 28/29 in World Soccer and Top end Soccer and Just Fontaine - #30 in IFFHS)...

Here are some of his ratings:

IFFHS: #7, World Soccer #5, Top End Soccer #5, FIFA Internet #15 and FIFA Grand Jury #6

Default Giuseppe Meazza

Meazza is widely considered one of the great pre-war stars. In fact, many would place him at the top of the list of pre-war stars. He also rates among the greats of all time when including post-war players as denoted by:

IFFHS #21 and Top End Soccer #37 ratings.

I have not seen many of these cards.

I very few Soccer/Football cards. This is my only pre-war card. I am curious where you would rank Billy Meredith and this card in general.

Default Meredith

OK, Billy Meredith was a stud... you can learn more about him here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Meredith

He was a huge star that played 20+ years and is one of the game's early stars.

He has a rookie card prior to this Clarke's ... and many other desirable cards. I will try to post a few in the coming days.

None of the "early" players really show up in the century rankings. The key players start showing up in the 1920s plus.

Andy, that is one scary-looking card! Meredith looks like a zombie - look at his eyes!

Default Raoul Diagne

So here is an important player, but not necessarily because of his accomplishments, but because of the milestone... Raoul Diagne was the first black player on the French National Team.

I love this card and there is another cool card of Rudi Hiden from this issue that I will post as well.

Rudi was a great goal keeper from Austria and actually even got a cap for France.
