Match worn or issued Genoa long-sleeved home shirt by the club’s number 8 Alessandro Quaggiotto in the season 1988-1989. What a shirt… Just a beautiful design with the taped sleeves.
Alessandro Quaggiotto is a former Italian football player who played for a handful Italian club teams in his footballing career. He made his senior debut at Brescia. Here he played in the Serie B and Serie C1 in the period 1981-1984. After one season at Ospitaletto in the Serie C2 (1984-85), Quaggiotto made the move to Bologna, where he played in the Serie B until 1988.
In his last season, 1987-88, Bologna were promoted to the Serie A. Quaggiotto then moved to Genoa in the summer of 1988, who were playing in the Serie B. The midfielder was active for Genoa only during the 1988-89 season. In this season, Genoa won the Serie B and thereby promoted to the Serie A. He played all 38 matches(!) in the Serie B this season. You might think that he would stay at either Bologna or Genoa to play in the highest division… But again Quaggiotto joined a Serie B team in the following season: Pescara. After a single season at this club, he returned to Brescia to fight for promotion to the Serie A. In their second attempt he won his third promotion to the Serie A. Quaggiotto had the opportunity to play 3 matches in the highest division, all as a substitute, making his debut on 22 November 1992.
The shirt has all the characteristics of a match shirt: correct player size, style (shaded) and material (plastic) number. The shirt comes from a family member of a person who was close to the player.
Extra information: Marco Nappi was the striker wearing the number 9 this season, while Davide Fontolan wore the number 10.
