Extremely rare match worn Sampdoria away shirt during the 1982-1983 season by the number 5 Giovanni Guerrini (in multiple matches). A fanshop version was not even available in that time.
Giovanni Guerrini was the defender who almost always wore this number #5. The Italian came from Fiorentina in 1981 and played for Sampdoria until 1984.
Has the number #5 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.
Photos 15 and 16 show Guerrini wearing the number 5 in Sampdoria’s home kit. In the last photo the front of the away kit is clearly visible. Here, Roberto Mancini (number 11) is pictured during a match in the end of 1982.
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. This shirt is also available. Click here to check this beauty out.
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.
There is a short written message with signature from the person who’s father received this shirt after the season.
Size: Medium/Large (fits slim as usual in that time)
