Brazilian Championship - Topscorers

The former Rio-São Paulo Tournament was officially named "Torneio Roberto
Gomes Pedrosa" since 1954, in hommage to the former goalkeeper of Brazil
National Team and president of São Paulo State FA, who died that year.
In 1967, the tournament promoters (São Paulo State and Guanabara State FAs)
invited clubs from Minas Gerais, Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul. The name
"Rio-São Paulo Tournament" was obviously abandoned and the new tournament
was only referred as "Roberto Gomes Pedrosa" or "Robertão".
In 1968, the tournament turned to be organized by CBD (the Brazilian FA),
which invited clubs from Bahia and Pernambuco and created a silver trophy
to be offered to the champions (hence, the tournament was also referred
as "Taça de Prata").

Almost 40 years later, in 22/Dec/2010, CBF awarded to Taça Brasil (1959-1968)
and Roberto Gomes Pedrosa (1967-1970) tournaments the status of Brazilian
Championships.
