Description

West Germany's 1st captain, this 1950 Kauvit Gum card shows Andreas Kupfer, the WC38 star and legendary player of 650 club appearances over 22 years was a member of the EuroXI Select team of 1938. This unused Kauvit gum card - most were glued into the album, this not - is sold as seen. It's generally good.  Helmut Schön characterised Kupfer as follows: "I would have been glad if we could have had a player like him in our ranks in Argentina. When he played behind me, with his hardness, deftness and pace, I felt absolutely safe upfront. He played diagonal passes with his left foot towards the right wing, which tore apart the defense. An exceptionally gifted player."
