players played in away FA Cup Final shirt with short sleeve, in right sleeve have plastic
logo "HYDROMOVE", haw on replicas shirt, why was as, answer may be you find read
Was made Commemorative shirts with special embroidery "F.A. CUP WINNERS
I have since received an email from a former director of a
national children's charity which will also shed some light on the provenance of these
"FA Cup Final" Shirts, The main part of the text from this email is copied here
in yellow text:
"I am looking for a gold 'FA Cup Final' - Cardiff 2001 (not 'Winners') shirt,
to add to the other shirts kindly donated to me by Reebok. These are to go directly to
Melwood to be fully signed by the squad, and to go into a charity auction in the second
week of September in London. Reebok informed me that the 'FA Cup Final' shirt was not an
officially endorsed shirt, and was not to be mass produced in the public domain, (so that
the players might have something to keep for themselves), However, a long standing client
of Reeboks, in Wales, purchased an embroidery disk after it was stolen from Reebok and
produced some of the shirts that are in the market place at present, without authority, To
combat the affect of this small number of shirts selling for large sums of money. (over
J200.00) Reebok then commissioned a small number to be produced and sold in the resale
market to bring the prices down and make more available to the general public.
In as much as Reebok have been kind enough to donate every other shirt, free of
charge, from the fully commemorative range from last season, they cannot not supply me
with an FA Cup Final shirt, because the shirt itself was not an official Reebok shirt
originally. As a result, your name and site were offered to me by Liverpool's PR section
as a possible option for obtaining one of these. "
So it would seem that the "FA CUP FINAL" shirt was not an officially
endorsed Reebok shirt originally and was sold to combat the effects of the black market.
The shirt seen here (№ 2 Stepfan Henchoz) is the uniquely rare Long Sleeve 'FA
Cup Final' replica shirt, This was sold through the Liverpool Mail Order club shop in
extremely small numbers, the short sleeve version will be rare in years to come and this
long sleeve type in adult sizes will be mega rare.
