A few minutes before France vs Brazil outstanding Quarter Finals’ game (considered one of the greatest ever played), I found Pele on the media plates. He was commenting the game for brazilian TV. I was lucky enough to get him sign my orange shirt, while my cousin capture the moment on this memorable photo. I have no words to describe what these beloved treasures mean to me, well kept at home since 1986. A dream come true jewel for any football fan, any country, any age! As a teenager football fan, I was extremely lucky at the age of 15 to be choosen as ball-catcher on the field, at Jalisco Stadium during the FIFA World Cup Mexico 1986. I was catching balls, just by the Brazilian bench, wearing this unmistakable ORANGE JERSEY AND SHORT, and carrying the other YELLOW SOUVENIR BRAZIL SMALL SHIRT for autographs. Before and after games, or during half-time, we had thechance to aproach some legendary footballers, ex-footballers and personalities to collect these valuable autographs. As you can see, most of Brazilian great players signed either shirts (in some cases, they signed on both). So you can find Zico, Socrates, Falcao & Careca; France´s star Dominique Rocheteau; Germany´s Pierre Littbarski; Poland & Juventus´ star Boniek; ex-footballers Pele & Rivelino; Argentinian 1978 Coach Cesar Luis Menotti… SEE FULL AUTOGRAPH LIST BELOW. For me, these are real prrsonal treasures. But after 34 years, I decided to sell them for personal reasons. A truly unique combo you justcan’t match anywhere. If this is a smart decision or not, time will tell. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please see photos of the actual items. All shirts & short are in good condition, well kept since 1986 at a pet-free, smoke-free house. I have never washed them (they’re clean, not smelly nor dirty), because I don´t want to damage all original autographs. Some signatures were made with marker or pen.
