  In a season 1996-97 the design home shirt has changed. Liverpool used home shirt two seasons, 1996-97 & 1997-98. Liverpool used home shirt how in all home, as and in more away matches.

  In Liverpool Youth team players shirt without a without REEBOK logo & without Carlsberg logo. Reserves and Youth teams not have family name players in back side shirt. Number player (start line numbers only with 1 on 11) in Reserves and Youth teams in back shirt not how shirt 1st team.

  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 Wright.

                                           

  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 Division football.

  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 (circled-R).
 
  Distinction between a player shirt used in matchs Premier League and used in matchs European Cup in seasons 1996-98

  Player shirt used in the European Cup ties differs from the standard Premier League player shirt in having small Carlsberg sponsor logo as well as the simplified manufacturer motif Reebok on the chest.



  On shirt in UEFA Cup have embrouder logo Reebok, when we not to look writen name Reebok (in left), im right usual REEBOK logo for player shirt (season 1997-98).



  In European Cup matches in Liverpool shirt rubber embossed Carlsberg logo, have small size, not how in Premier League shirt. Also in shirt for Cup Winners Cup not have the "Official Licensed Product" tag (right side).

  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 (www.liverpoolkits.com).
