Parma Will Wear A Special Edition Jersey To Mark 26 Years Since Gianluigi Buffon Made His Serie A Debut

The 17-year-old goalkeeper was a surprise pick to play against Fabio Capello’s Milan after the first choice was suspended.

He kept a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw and the career of the GOAT began.

That was on November 19, 1995, and to mark 26 years since that moment, Parma and Errea Sport have released a new special edition jersey that replicates the one Buffon was wearing on his Serie A debut.

It follows roughly the same red and white pattern with a black panel and has 1995-2021 inscribed.

Buffon will wear it during the Serie B game against Cosenza at the Stadio Tardini on November 21.

The special edition shirt is on sale in a box that includes a signed picture of Buffon in the 1995-96 season wearing that jersey.
