1995-1996 Third Player Shirt
This third shirt was used by Liverpool in three consecutive seasons: 1993-1994, 1994-1995 and 1995-1996. The version shown here in from season 1995-1996. This third shirt is also the only one with big-Carlsberg replicas produced. There are no long sleeved replicas produced for this shirt.
1995-1996 Liverpool Third Player Shirt - Number 9 shirt belongs to legendary strker Ian Rush.
Featured Ian Rush wearing the 1995-1996 Third Player Shirt against Southhampton. Note the use of the away green shorts.
Let us look at the back side of the collar label.
Left: Replica shirt's collar label has bigger words.
Right: Player shirt's collar label has small words.
Also note that the washing instructions icons differ.
Many collector thinks that the replica counter is exactly the same as the genuine player shirt apart from no long sleeves version (this style is the only commercially released shirt with the 27cm big Carlsberg sponsor). However, I am glad to be prompted by Craig Mortimer that even if you get a short sleeved player shirt, it is different from the replica.
I place the replica shirt inline with the player shirt on the right hand.
Left: Note that the replica shirt's club crest is a bit longer and bigger than the player shirt's one. The words of "LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB" are less bolded and slimmer, so do the words of "EST. 1892". The two candle stands (black crosses) on the replica is bolder though.
Right: Note that the player shirt's club crest is a bit shorter and smaller than the player shirt's one. The words of {LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB" are bolded and thicker, so do the words of "EST. 1892". The two candle stands (black crosses) on the player shirt is slimmer though.
Besides, the two Liverbird looks a bit different.
Last but never least, the background pattern of the shirt is displaced a bit upper for the player shirt.
Let us look at the collar label.
Left: Replica shirt's collar label has bigger words. We see the three blue Adidas vertical stripes align with the words"BRAND WITH".
Right: Player shirt's collar label has smaller words. We see the three blue Adidas vertical stripes align with the words "BRAND WITH" as well as partial portion of the two words "THE".
