Zico (Arthur Antunes Coimbra) was arguably the best footballer in the world from the late 1970s to early 80s. Many soccer pundits view Zico as Brazil's greatest player since Pele, and that includes Pele himself who stated, "Throughout the years, the one player that came closest to me was Zico." The attacking midfielder known for his creativity, playmaking and technical skills was also a clinical finisher and deadly free-kick specialist, tallying 157 goals in 288 games in Italy's Serie A (1971-89) and 48 goals in 71 caps for Brazil (1976-86). FIFA ranked Zico eighth on its 1999 Player of the 20th Century list.

Presented here is one of Zico's Brazil match-worn jerseys from the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico. It was his last appearance on the world's biggest stage as well as his final season with the National Team. Brazil lost to France on penalty kicks in the Quarterfinals. The short-sleeved yellow shirt with a green collar and green ribbed elastic sleeve ends has the CBF (Brazil Football Confederation) crest and "BRASIL" on the left chest; the three green stars indicate the number of World Cup Jules Rimet Trophies the nation had won at that point. The logo for manufacturer Topper appears on the right chest, with the brand's tagging with wash instructions in Portuguese and a "12" flag tag inside the collar. The reverse of the jersey has the coveted No. "10" in green block outlined numbers. Each logo and number is pressed/ironed on the yellow fabric. Overall, the shirts displays ample wear with heavy pilling. (Dark triangular shadow on upper back in image online is just the front collar design showing through.)

Includes LOA from Brazil National Team (CBF) Technical Coordinator, who is also the nephew of former CBF President Ricardo Teixeira.
