Football fans of a certain age love nothing more than a weird, confusing or downright kaleidoscopic kit…
a weakness which is lovingly pandered to in the latest Got, Not Got: Lost World of Football books, stuffed with fab York Y-fronts, matchworn yellow Admiral Wales away with Rasta tramlines, sock tags and… we could go on.
How much would you pay for one of these 1976 Admiral Man U pyjama tracky jobs today? The book is considerably cheaper!
Elsewhere in the world of memorabilia and confusing rose-tinted memories, how about these footy cards off eBay? Jimmy Greaves in Liverpool kit? Maradona playing for Spurs? Charlie George for Forest? Eh?
As featured in The Lost World of Football, here’s David Harvey of Leeds mixing and matching his club and country kit in 1978. Yet more Smiley surprises and Leeds in red kit in the Leeds edition!
Here’s an exclusive peek at the Chelsea and Cov pages in The Lost World – featuring the infamous ‘T’-shirt and Peter Osgood in the most bizarre Chelsea kit in history!
Finally, the ultimate baad (as in otherly great) reference page, our favourite on the ace Historical Football Kits site.
It’s Christmas! Time for Subbuteo accessories, new kit and supersonic football annuals under the tree!
