Earlier this week, it was announced that Javier Zanetti will retire at the end of this season, after 19 seasons of service at Internazionale.

The Argentinean right-back/midfielder — who has won five scudetti, four Coppa Italias and a Champions League — will take a management position at the Nerazzurri, whom he joined as a 22-year-old in 1995.

As you can see from his Panini stickers above (and the missing 19th sticker here), Zanetti has managed to completely halt the aging process during his time in Italy, while keeping exactly the same haircut. 

Seeing as David Beckham has changed his hair approximately 6,456 times in that same period, Il Capitano surely deserves some kind of award for his unfaltering commitment to the side parting.
