As a general rule I try to add shirts to the collection which are more obscure or difficult to find and it must be said that Manchester United shirts are neither obscure or hard to pick up. I was explaining this to my neighbour, Rick, who is a devotee of Man U who was unhappy that his beloved team were not represented in the collection while may of their rival clubs were. As a result he very kindly donated this beauty as worn by Man U in their "triple winning" season in 1999 although they had a different shirt for European matches. This shirt saw Umbro venture into using a zip as trim on a shirt. This was the first Man U shirt to have this badge on it which makes no reference to football and as such is much more suitable for marketing and merchandising.
