Extremely rare match worn/issued Sampdoria long-sleeved away shirt during the 1986-1987 season by/for a number #11 (most likely Roberto Mancini). It is a shirt from this specific season because the first letter P of the Phonola sponsor is (almost) touching the vertical colored lines. See the differences with other seasons below.
Has the number #11 stitched on the back using Ennerre’s classic zig-zag patterned stitching. The logo ‘NR’ is stitched on the right side of the chest, which are the two green letters surrounded by white on a black background. These are the initials of Nicola Raccuglia, a former football player of several Italian clubs, who started to design sportswear for Italian football teams. The club crest (sleeve) and shield (front) patches are sewn on the shirt. The sponsor Phonola is painted on the front in black.
Photo 17 shows Mancini wearing the away kit in this season. The last photo shows Gianluca Vialli with number 11 in the away game against AC Milan on 23 May 1987.
The away shirt that Sampdoria wore throughout the 1980s (1982-1988) with Ennerre as the brand and Phonola as the sponsor looked very similar. Here are the differences from season to season:
Small Phonola sponsor in the middle of the shirt (the only season in which the Phonola sponsor was this small as the shirt available here).
Slightly larger Phonola sponsor.
The same as the previous season 1983-84.
Sampdoria won the Coppa Italia in the end of the 1984-1985 season and therefore got the Coccarda sewn on the chest (which represents that the team won the Coppa Italia in the previous season).
Larger Phonola sponsor with the first letter P (almost) touching the vertical colored lines.
The shield has significantly moved downwards on the shirt, which was not the case in the previous seasons. The P of Phonola is placed between the vertical colored lines.
Size: Medium/Large (fits slim as usual in that time)
