|HOME/AWAY||Away||COUNTRY||Brazil Sao Paulo|
To a casual observer it may look like I have some sort of obsessive compulsive disorder about collecting black and white striped shirts. Maybe I do but surely nobody can blame for adding this magnificent specimen to the collection. This is Santos' traditional away shirt as opposed the classic white shirt we're all familiar with as worn by Pele amongst others. I'm told by Bira, who you won't be surprised to learn sourced this shirt for me, that this was originally Santos' home shirt and it was only later on in the club's history (pre Pele's era) that they changed to the all white shirt. Apparently Santos is Portuguese for "Saints" which is strangely apt given the similarity between this shirt and the shirts of the mighty St Mirren.
