Alessandro Del Piero played his 500th game for Juventus on Saturday.
The 32-year-old reached the milestone against Bari in Italy's Serie B- almost 14 years after making his debut for the Turin powerhouse.
Del Piero is only the third player in history to reach the mark for Juventus. Giuseppe Furino appeared 528 times in midfield between 1969-1979, while defender Gaetano Scirea made a club record 552 appearances between 1974-1988.
Striker Del Piero joined Juventus in 1993 from Padova, the only other club he has played for as a professional. He made his Bianconeri debut on September 12 of that year as a second-half substitute against Foggia in the Serie A.
