2009 Hillsborough Memorial Match
All Stars XI Player Shirt of captain Dave Watson
Note that this is a genuine match supplied shirt instead of the notorious counterfeit made by Hong Kong con-artists as discussed below.
I won't show up any close-up zoom photos of the MDA ribbon as well as embroideries.
Fake alert! This is the root of evil, a so-called "Official Adidas Shirt" cloned up by Hong Kong con-artists as "LFC Legends Hillsborough Memorial Shirt".
This shirt is 100% uncorrelated to any genuine sources of match shirts. It's actually a plain red Adidas brand template soccer shirt self-embroidered with the MDA ribbon and match details, a DIY oversized Carlsberg PU sponsor.
Once you hold a genuine match shirt on hand, you can tell how pathetic the bad mistakes were found on the counterfeit.
After circulations of the counterfeit started from the aforesaid Hong Kong shop, the infinite numbers of "Original Adidas Shirt" flow to ebay.
Note that the seller gives assurance it is an "Original Adidas Shirt", which simply means it's an Adidas brand shirt.
Will you be assured that it's a real deal and this is actually the shirt used in the Hillsborough Memorial Match instead of DIY details / sponsor logo etc? Absolutely not!
