This Chelsea football shirt was personally signed by Didier Drogba in Ivory Coast on June 30, 2021. Drogba finished his Chelsea career having played 341 games and scored 157 goals. He won three Premiership titles, four FA Cups, and the Champions League. In November 2012 Didier was voted Chelsea's greatest ever player in a poll of 20,000 fans.
All our signed memorabilia is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity detailing when and where the product was signed. Our company number and details are included on the certificate.
Signing photo The certificate for this product includes a photo of the sportspeople or celebrity signing one of the product line at the relevant signing session. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every product being signed, but showing that the sportsperson or celebrity was present and signing items is, we believe, the best way to demonstrate the legitimacy of your products.
Numbered security hologram Your certificate will come with a numbered security hologram, which will correspond to a matching, identically numbered hologram on your product. This ensures that the certificate can only be used to authenticate the item for which there is a corresponding number. If anyone attempts to remove either hologram it will destruct, so it is impossible to transfer the holograms to other items.
