Lot 613. Autographed Books by Soccer Stars Michelle Akers and Brandi Chastain Akers ranks among the world’s best female soccer players of all time. In 2002, she and Sun Wen of China shared FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) recognition as the “Female Player of the Century.” In 2004, she and Mia Ham were the only women selected by Pelé for a FIFA list of 125 greatest living soccer players. She was inducted into the Soccer Hall of Fame in 2004. Chastain became a Hall of Fame member in 2017. A two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, she played on two FIFA Women’s World Cup Championship teams. In 1999, her penalty shot goal against China gave the U.S. the FIFA World Cup title. Akers’ autograph is mint 9 to gem mint 10 on the title page of her autobiography, “The Game and the Glory,” a 2000 apparent first edition hardback, nm-m book, nm dust jacket. Chastain’s hardback book is titled “It’s Not About the Bra: How to Play Hard, Play Fair and Put the Fun Back into Competitive Sports,” 2004 stated first edition, mint book and nm+ dust jacket. In her book, written with Gloria Averbuch, Chastain takes on the issues of sportsmanship, gamesmanship and excessive parental involvement. She outlines how young players can develop leadership skills and argues for rediscovering respect for the game, for teammates and adversaries, for coaches and referees, and for the players themselves. Her title-page autograph is a gem mint 10 beauty with “Dreams do come true!” added above and “6 USA” added below. Winning Bid $20.
