1996-1998 Home Player Shirt (Big Carlsberg)
|This is the first home shirt released under the Reebok era and spanned for two seasons from 1996-1997 and 1997-1998. This shirt should be revolutionary design as it's the first time in over 30 years a Liverpool shirt comes with a neck-collar.
The genuine player shirt used for domestic competition continues to have bigger Carlsberg sponsor logo when compared with replicas.
|Liverpool 1997-1998 Home Player Shirt - Number 2 shirt belongs to defender Rob Jones. This is not a 1996-1997 shirt because unified Premier League names & numbers were started in use from season 1997-1998.|

|The major difference lies in the Carlsberg sponsor size - the upper one is from a replica shirt, the lower one is from a player shirt used for domestic competitions.|
|Upon a direct side-by-side comparison, an additional registered mark is found around the Reebok logo only on the player shirt (right side).|
|Though this shirt comes with an unprecedented neck collar design, the genuine player shirt's collars are in fact stitched down on the shoulders position. That means one cannot flip up a player shirt's collar completely.|
