Liverpool was the first-ever team in history adopting commercial sponsorship on the chest. The Japanese electronics company HITACHI appeared on Liverpoool shirts in season 1979-1980.
If we view from the inner side, the effect of embroidery is more conspicous.
Again, only for the geniune player shirt, you will have both the club crest and manufacturer motif embroidered.
As usual, the collar tag of UMBRO era Liverpool player shirt is different from the replicas. Size information is always written in WORDS (MEN) instead of numbers in inches.
The numbers on the backside are machine-stitched pieces of cloth.
Sir Jock Stein retired from professional football coaching. A Testimonial Game between Liverpool and Celtic was held. It was that time King Kenny gifted his autographed shirt to Stein.
This shirt was originally a gift to Sir Jock Stein by Kenny Dalglish. It bears the autograph (washed out) of "Good Luck Kenny Dalglish".
