-Founded: 14 April 1912 
-Honours: 3 Copa Libertadores (Last one: 2011); 3 Brasilerão (Last one: 2004) 
-Biggest rival: São Paulo 
-About: The first colors chosen for the new club were white, azure blue and golden lemon. But the difficulty to fabricate the colors on the uniform during those times forced a board meeting a year after the club's foundation. The president of Santos based the club on the new colours, white and black.

Despite I'm a Real Madrid supporter, I must say that I've been looking forward to get this shirt more than any other one in the collection.

When my Brazilian mate Henrique asked me for a Málaga shirt, I thought he could be able to get me the Santos third kit with Neymar #11 printing, but then he told me that the player issue home shirt was on sale, so I took the second option.
The only downside was that while the shirt was on the way, Barça signed Neymar. I didn't really want him for Real, but neither for Barcelona.
And thanks a million to Henrique (whose collection you can see here), who helped me to get this incredible shirt!

-Season: 2012/13
