1950 Andreas Kupfer WC38 & 1st Captain of BRD, star 650 appearances EuroXI select team of 1938



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."
