His first official number was #10, I believe that was the 95/96 season. Before that there were no registered numbers, they were handed out 1-11 for each game.

Del Piero started to play in Juve in 1993 so he didn't start with #10 cause in seasons 1993/94 and 1994/95 # 10 was Baggio.
I don't remember which one was his number and also I didn't find it on the net. If you are really courios to know it, maybe you can look for his old pictures or goal videos, there will be one of his first seasons, I'm sure ;)

P.S.: At the time they had the numbers printed just in the back and not in the front (now is also in the schorts)... so also from the pics, is difficolt to figur out his number...

i think it was 16
I've booked him in a video with Baggio and he was wearing #9, but actually I'm almost sure it was not his first number.
16 may be the one! Looks possible... wheare did you find it?

Since numbers were not registered at the time, they could vary. Handed out 1-11 before each game he could only get 16 if he was coming off the bench, only get 9 as a starter etc.

That's why I tought that 9 is impossible... cause usually was Vialli number.
But maybe he had a "proper number" like 4 Baggio was 10, Vialli 9, Ravanelli 11, ecc... Anycase it's very difficolt to find out which one it was the first he weared.
The only way it will be to figure out wich was his first match and to find a picture or a video about this match...

If you have played CM Italia 93/94 you know that you can give the players all the numbers from 1-16.
Yeah, and 1-11 are outfield players, 12-16 is the bench. So you can't give a starter #16.
