Liverpool player shirt comes without a sponsor logo Carlsberg on the crest
position owing to ban of beer sponsoring in countries like Norway and France.
Unlike usual alcoholic bans in France and Norway, Carlsberg tried to breakthrough
the advertising restrictions instead of dropping out the logo completely. I don't know
about the significance of commercial returns or promotion of the lager in Norway,
Carlsberg made use of the loophole in regulations and adopted "Probably..." in
place of "Carlsberg"!
Anyway, serious collectors should know the ultra-rarity of this shirt. It is
estimated that around 15-20 shirts of this special sponsor were ever manufactured. One of
these shirts is exhibited in Anfield Museum. One is owned by reputational collector Colin
Why Liverpool used for UEFA Cup matches shirt with small Carlsberg logo and no
REEBOK letters in Reebok logo, answer simp. The rules of UEFA has established the certain
size of advertising on a shirt and consequently some changes have been made.
|| In season 1997-98 first on shirt teams why played in
Premier League on player number in down to have Premier League logo.
Reebok's first kit design for Liverpool incorporates several
features intended to recall Liverpool teams of old. The home kit is plain red with little
trim. The current Shankly gates and Hillsborough flame badge is set into a large oval, as
in the kits of the 50s and 60s. The turn over collar is more of a break with tradition
however, and is the first to appear on a Liverpool kit since the bad old days of Second
Again the shirt sported the extra badge on the bottom of
the shirt on the outside, This time the badge said simply "Reebok, Official
Merchandise" along side a smaller version of the same Liver bird badge as seen on the
chest of the shirt, The collar was all white apart from a red stripe that ran through it,
This strip also appeared on the white band at the end of the sleeves.
The badge was a curious design as the oval badge was a completely separate piece of
material that had been sewn onto the shirt, the badge was stitched and not embossed in any
way, The shirt did not display a stripe for the first time in a while, instead a very
faint image of the Liver Bird can be seen running through out the shirts material, whether
this was great attention to detail or a way to make it harder for the shirt to be copied
by the fake market remains to be seen.
How to distinguish a shirt of a season 1996-97, from a shirt of a season 1997-98,
very difficultly. Certainly, were for this time of change in design of a family name
player and number (to look in below). Also on player of a season 1996-97 used embroidered
REEBOK logo with ONE the small registered mark (circled-R), but on player of a
season 1996-97 used embroidered Reebok logo with TWO the small registered mark

Attention! If you wish to buy a player shirt Liverpool on the
Internet auction, be close. Be careful of a fake or purchases of a player shirt a
semifinished item. The semifinished item is when on a game shirt add stripes (Premier
League or other tournaments), a logo "Carlsberg", a surname and number of the
player. It concerns shirt not only last decade, but also 80 and 90 years. If you cannot
distinguish a player shirt from a replica or a semifinished item, consult to Michael Yip
