Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Pelè during the game Fast Clube-AM vs Santos of the “Torneio Amazonia 1968” which took place in Manaus (Amazonas – Brazil) on August 9th 1968. It was a friendly tournament organized by Flaviano Limongi former President of the Federação Amazonense de Futebol (Amazonas Football Federation). Santos team, led by Pelè, went to play in Manaus for the first time in its history. Santos played two games. The first one against Fast Clube-AM on August 9th and the second one took place on August 11th against Nacional-AM. Santos defeated both teams, 3-0 against Fast Clube-AM and 2-1 the Nacional-AM team. With this shirt Pelè scored his goal number 914 of his incredible career. Pelè after the match gave the shirt still wet and dirty to the President Flaviano Limongi and he signed and dedicated it with the following words: “Para meu amigo President Flavio um abraço – 9/8/68”. The shirt was never washed and it became part of the President Flaviano Limongi personal sport collection. Flaviano Limongi had his own project to open a Sport Museum in Manaus but he never did due the missed promises made during the years by the local government to make it happen inside the Arena de Amazonia for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The Museum never opened and Flaviano Limongi passed in 2013 leaving his collection to his relatives, who we got this shirt from, after it was announced that the Museum would have never happened.
