A prolific striker, Papin scored the most goals in the French league for five years in a row from 1988 to 1992. The French term ''Papinade'' came about as a way to describe Papin's powerful volley shots, and is still used to describe those types of shots today. Obverse features the FIFA trophy logo. Reverse is inscribed, ''Copa Mudial de la FIFA Mexico 1986''. Interestingly, it was at this championship that the audience activity of ''the wave'' made its debut in the stands. Medal suspends from a blue and white ribbon. Measures 2'' in diameter. Weighs 2 ounces or 67 grams. Some minor abrasions to rim and to reverse, else near fine. Obtained directly from Jean-Pierre Papin and with his LOA.
