“and with the number 18..”. Brazil is not only the land of great football, there are other sports where great champions have been able to make a difference. Absolute myths for their country but also for the city and fans of a particular team for which they are a symbol, forever (“forever” as we like it). Caserta has never forgotten it, the Celebrative Sticker #35 is dedicated to Oscar Schmidt!
Oscar participated in 5 Olympic Games, holding records of both appearances and points scored, his love for Brazil is exemplary, in an interview he declared that he did not go to play in the NBA because then the US professional players could not participate in the commitments of the national team. USA basketball, in 2013, included him in the Hall of Fame.
As written on our celebratory card, Oscar’s period at Juvecaserta went from 1982 to 1990, almost 300 games played, almost 10,000 points scored. Legendary numbers. With the Brazilian champion, the team from region Campania makes the leap in quality in Italy and Europe, ironically the historic Scudetto in Caserta will arrive only the following year (after 2 lost finals in the 80s), but we are convinced that Oscar too, in the previous years, had contributed well to creating the foundations of the dreamed of triumph.
Oscar Bezerra Schmidt completes a special trilogy of great basketball champions celebrated with our solidarity stickers, touching Italy from north to south: Milan and Varese (Dino Meneghin), Bologna (Gary “Baron” Schull) and now Caserta, the myth of basketball in stickers. More and more hot spots of Italian basketball will arrive where we will go to celebrate them, of course.
The solidarity sticker was made possible thanks to the collaboration with the Municipality of Caserta and some Juvecaserta fans, essential for getting in touch with the great champion.
