AUSTRALIA 2006/08 - HOME SHIRT - NIKE

Muddy shirt coming straight from Australian Gold Coast, were its previous owner Michael Thwaite lives. The jersey is from friendly match between Australia and Nigeria, played in London in 2007. Michael didn't play but he warm up with the shirt on and that's were the stains are coming from! He also signed it and wrote a dedication for my collection! Huge thanks Michael!

CHINA 2018 - HOME SHIRT - NIKE

One of the fastest "ask and get" stories on my blog! On 26th I finally managed to get in contact with Massimiliano Maddaloni, assistant coach of Marcello Lippi for China national team and coach of the Olympic team.
He was in China for some friendlies, and I tried asking him a jersey. He successfully got it and bring it back in Italy, where we met (he lives in Viareggio, a town just 30' far from my hometown) and he gave to me. The shirt should be from the match vs Thailand and worn by Yu Hai.


Bolivia

BOLIVIA 2000/03 - HOME SHIRT - ATLETICA

Nice and old shirt, I found it online and chatting with the previous owner he told me it's coming from Argentina (from another collector), and it's supposedly match worn or at least issued. I was in contact with a Bolivian collector, he confirmed me that at the time shirts were sold without number, and this one has all the correct features of his worn shirts.
