Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Paulo Miranda during the 1999-00 season when the side finished 3rd in Brasileirão Serie A, thus qualifying for the knock-out stage where they reached the Quarter-Finals but lost to Vitória. Paulo Miranda featured 45 times for the side during this period, scoring 2 goals, in his first season with the club after moving from Atlético Paranaense. He spent 2 years with Vasco, where he won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A and Copa Mercosur in 2000, before moving abroad to French team Bordeaux. This shirt was also used when the side reached the final of the World Club Championship, where they also famously defeated giants Manchester United 3-1 at the Maracana, although it did not feature the reverse sponsor.
