America from Rio De Janeiro are the grandaddy of Brazilian clubs called America. Many clubs in Brazil have adopted the name, colour scheme and a similar badge. The white stars on the shirt represent Rio state championships won by the side and the one gold star a national tournament in 1982. The shirt is very well made and reflects the way that manufacturers like Penalty have raised their standards to match or surpass some of the more established international manufacturers. This excellent historic shirt was sent to me by Brazilian collector extraordinaire, Bira Rezende.
