Growing up in the seventies and eighties have given me a certain nostalgia for shirts with diagonal stripes and this Mixto shirt is as good an example as any. It bears more than a passing similarity to a Ponte Preta shirt and is well made. The badge is a little different to the usual Brazilian club badge and Kanxa have done an excellent job in rendering it. Mixto are from the city of Cuiaba in Mato Grosso state which is interestingly enough right in the geographical centre of South America and have a good record in state competitions if not nationally. This shirt, as with so many others, was sent to me by Brazilian collector Bira Rezende.
