The pernambucano Vevé and the gaúcho Saulzinho passed through São Januário for the first half of the 1960s. At the time, the "Turma da Colina" was going through an offseason and was not pinching bowls or banners. With this, the first loaned to Esporte Clube Bahia. From his stop, the second had more luck and was the leading scorer of the 1962 Carioca Championship, with 18 goals, leaving behind the great "killers" of the season - Dida, Henrique Frade, Amarildo, Quarentinha, etc -. He could have gone further, but a bruise took him out of the scene when he was in good shape, barring him, even, the chance to play in the Brazilian national team that went to the World Cup in Chile.
