When the replica shirt (top one) is placed in alignment with the players shirt (bottom one), you can see the actual size difference of the Carlsberg logo.
When a replica is placed together with a player shirt, we can see a big Carlsberg (upper) reaches either sides of Reebok and club crest.
Inclusive of players shirt and replica shirts, there are three types of names & numberings adopted:
Left: Players shirts adopted the rough surface number without any logo.
Middle: Replica shirts bought from the club shop offer the number with the LFC logo and Liverbird.
Right: Replica shirts bought from one HK shop adopted the "Reebok" official number.
With different type of numberings adopted, the corresponding names are also different:
Top: Players shirts adopted the rough surface names shorter than a credit card length.
Middle: Club shop replica shirt adopted smaller sized names even much shorter than above.
Bottom: Reebok official names are comparatitvely the biggest in size.
A pair of fuse-on match worn version Premier League badges are adopted on the players shirt. Unlike those late 90's fuse-on match worn badges (ones with TM logo), this mid 90's match worn version fuse-on badges were never avaialble for public sale in Hong Kong or elsewhere - that means, it's impossible to get a pair of match worn sized fuse-on badges without the TM logo separately.
Top: Replica shirts has size tags denominated in inches numbers - 46/48
Bottom: Players shirt has size tags denominated in words instead - XL
