  In a season 1981-82, Liverpool playing in home shirt without embroidery UMBRO writing:  This was used only on home shirt in European Cup matches and World Club Championship match.

               

  First in history of Liverpool F C, on back side shirt there was a surname of the player. This was in neutral World Club Championship (Toyota Cup) match versus Flamengo (Brazil) on 13th March 1981. Again surname player back on Liverpool shirt only in season 1993-94, when English Premier League to go Fixed numbers of players atop of which there was a surname of the player (look below).

 

  In League Cup Final (14.03.1981) match was used simple home shirt (photo in top left page, Graeme Souness H 1.2), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches League Cup Final 1981, 1982, 1983 & 1984.

  In World Club Championship (14.03.1981) match was used simple home shirt (photo in top left page, Graeme Souness H 1.4), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches World Club Championship 1981 & 1984.

  I now not know in season 1979-80, Liverpool used home shirt with small UMBRO logo & small HITACHI logo or big UMBRO logo & small HITACHI logo. May be I mistake and you have other information and photo with season 1979-80. In Liverpool programmes have player photo in home shirt with small UMBRO logo & small HITACHI logo, this was image Colin Irwin (Liverpool home programme with match versus Bristol City, 06.10.1979).

  The name of the electrical company Hitachi was added to the current kit without any further change. However, as sponsorship was not allowed in several competitions, including Europe, or in televised matches the shirts did not display the word 'HITACHI' for many games and the unsponsored shirt continued to be used.

  
                              

  Big Hitachi letters, used Liverpool in seasons 1979-81, small Hitachi letters, used Liverpool in seasons 1980-82.

  Indeed, UEFA even insisted on the Umbro badge being covered in European matches, hence photographs showing Liverpool in a kit with a white rectangle on the righthand side of the shirt where the Umbro logo had been covered, usually with something as crude as sticky tape, The days of having different shirts produced specifically for different tournaments was years ahead in the future, It has been said recently that Liverpool now use between 500 and 700 shirts a year from Reebok, Yet during the late 70s they probably used no more than around 200 from Umbro per season and shirts were adapted from tournament to tournament.

  This Hitachi sponsored shirt is a favourite with Liverpool shirt collectors including myself and sells for probably more than any other standard season shirt, Although this is also due to the fact that it is one of the oldest and becoming hard to find.

  The telling factors that make this an authentic match worn players shirt are the size label in the collar of the shirt, This is shown in the images below, Although the label is slightly creased the size of this shirt can still be clearly seen as 'Large', The replica shirts were sized in inches, for example, 34"/36" and only the players shirts were sized in words, Medium, Large etc...

  Also the Umbro badge on the shirt is fully embroidered into the shirt as is found on the players shirts of this era, Replica Hitachi shirt's sometimes had embroidered Liver-bird badges, but never for the Umbro logo also, The players shirts also had the numbers fully stitched onto the back of the shirt in a separate piece of white material, This can also be seen in one of the images below.

  The height of the Hitachi letters are 6cm, the width of the logo is 29cm.

  These shirts would have been worn for more than one game, Sponsorship and kit manufacturing was very basic in the late 70s, This shirt would have been used in many games during the season, This can be seen from the shirt label showing it has been laundered, This would not have happened once the signatures were put onto the shirt , Thus proving the shirt was washed a used a few times by Kenny Dalglish prior to him having it signed and passing this onto a friend of the club.

  The small Hitachi letter is 20 cm wide, and the letters are 5 cm high. This type of smaller Hitachi logo was used for some televised games where allowed, as the full sized logo was used for the standard un-televised home and away games.


  In 1982 the agreement with Japan firm Hitachi has ended three-year and Liverpool has signed three-year the agreement with United  Kingdom firm Crown Paints.

  BEWARE: Despite the common misunderstanding, long sleeve versions of this shirt were released as both player issue AND standard club shop replicas. Many replicas from this season also contained embroidered badges, or a combination of one embroidered badge and one embossed badge, so please do not be fooled by ebay sellers claiming there shirt is match worn simply because of long sleeves and embroidered badges.
