TEAM Sampaio Correa SEASON(S) Early 2000s?
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Brazil Maranhao
MANUFACTURER Finta

Oh dear god what on Earth did Sampaio Correa do to deserve this shirt? It's mental. The club's nickname is "The Bolivians" as they play in the national colours. As far as I know they don't have any link to Brazil's mountainous neighbour. The club is apparently named after a seaplane which visited Sao Luis in the 1920s. It's a strange thing to name a club after and it's lucky the plane didn't have an embarrassing name. The shirt is a lightweight design and not the best quality shirt which Finta have ever made. As the picture (left) suggests this shirt was sent to me by Brazilian collector, Bira.
