This offering is a unique 1998 FIFA World Cup Final Draw medal presented to the member of the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) who represented Brazil at the official group drawing for the 16th World Cup held in France. These final draw medals are apparently only awarded to one representative from each of the 32 teams that qualify for the world's biggest sporting event, making them particularly rare.

The 1998 World Cup official draw took place in Marseilles, France on December 4, 1997. Brazil drew into Group A along with Norway, Morocco and Scotland. The Brazilians finished atop their group with six points to advance to elimination play in the Round of 16. They would beat Chile, Denmark and Netherlands in succession before facing France in the Finals. Thanks to a clutch performance from Zidane who came through with a brace in the final match, the host nation won 3-0 to claim their first ever World Cup title.

This lovely final draw medal features a raised, gold-plated FIFA World Cup trophy on the front with "FIFA WORLD CUP" on the top. The reverse features "DRAW" at top and "MARSEILLES 4.12.97" at bottom with the FIFA World Cup 1998 France logo in the center. The silver-plated bronze medal, made by renowned Italian manufacturer Bertoni, measures 60 mm in diameter, 4-5 mm thick, and weighs 90 grams. It presents NM-MT and comes in its original blue Bertoni presentation case. Includes LOA from a longtime Brazil National Team coordinator.
