Isn't it a tipically Central-South American crest?

-Founded: 21 September 1923
-Honours: 10 Salvadoran leagues (Last one: Clausura 2013)
-Biggest rival: CD FAS, CD Águila, Alianza FC 
-About: Firpo plays most of its home games at Estadio Sergio Torres Rivera, better known throughout Central America as the Devil's Cauldron. Located in Usulután, it's an exception among Salvadoran clubs: Firpo is the only team in the First Division which plays in its own stadium.

I was in a Joma official store in Madrid and then I saw this. Two completely plain football shirts with a crest on them which I hadn't seen in my life. What a great surprise when I discovered it was a club from Usulután, El Salvador. The shirts were on sale, so I bought both of them. I would have prefered the jerseys with all those sponsors on them (they make a shirt seem more 'authentic'), but anyway that made my day.
I also investigated about its price on eBay and on the CONCACAF official shop and it exceeded 50€, so I'm selling one (I fair play, only for 40€).
I will definitely visit more often that Joma store.

-Season: 2012/13
-Brand: Joma 
-Special features: replica version features (embroidered Joma logo and club crest).
-Where to buy it: my eBay profile (cheapest site, trust me)
-Approximate price: $55 / €40 / £33
