1988-1989 Home Player Shirt
|This shirt has exactly the same style as the 1987-1988 home shirt. The only change was the sponsorship from Crownpaints to Candy in 1988-1989. Once again as this shirt was only worn in a single season, it's considered as a rather rare player shirt.|

|Typical 80s Liverpool adidas era player shirts are characterised by having the beautiful embroideries.
Left: Adidas motif is fully embroidered into the shirt with little circled-R marks.
Right: Liverbird club crest is fully embroidered too.
HOWEVER, one very interesting point to note is that - I can hardly locate any match pictures with players wearing shirts with embroidered club crest and Liverbird! Players strangely wearing replicas-specification shirts in that season - apart from the FA Cup Final 1989.
|As always, replica shirt has rubber embossed club crest only.|
|Typical machine sewn-on cloth type numbers are found on this player shirt.|
|If we view from the inner side, we can see the embroideries of both the club crest and manufacturer motif for the player shirt.|
|This is another piece of history!! The shirt is autographed by the double winners squad from the 1989season. See how many autographs you can identify.|
