This is an extremely rare, authentic 1977 Novostil Gios team jersey. It has long sleeves, feels like 100% acrylic, and measures 51 centimetres armpit to armpit. It would have been used for the cold early season races, almost certainly in Spain, and probably by Blas Domingo. He was a neopro' from Valencia who died the following year. The jersey is ideal for L'Eroica, but more importantly it was never made available commercially.
As such you literally never see them, and it's inconceivable it wasn't issued by the team. Given that it's 40 years old, the jersey is in fantastic condition. There are no holes, the fabric and felt lettering are great, and the zip works perfectly.There's very slight discoloration here and there, but it's only perceptable if you're looking for it. It has three rear pockets. Gios' sponsorship is explained by the fact that they wanted a foothold in the Spanish market. They'd been hugely successful in Italy and Belgium with Roger De Vlaeminck's Brooklyn, and Spain was a natural fit. In the event the team would continue until 1979, by which time it had eveolved into Novostil Helios, and included the great Basque champion Marino Lejarreta.
