TEAM New York Cosmos SEASON(S) 2010
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY United States of America
MANUFACTURER Umbro

Yeah, I know. New York Cosmos. Cool isn't it? The heydays of the original Cosmos and NASL were before my time really and now from this distance in time it all seems so surreal to the point of almost mythological. I mean a club who had Pele and Beckenbauer on the books must have been quite something. This shirt is from the reformed Cosmos in 2010 who played an under 23 side in some league or other. The shirt is a straight copy of the original Cosmos shirt although the badge is slightly different. I have heard the theory that the relaunch of the Cosmos was as much about selling merchandise as playing football. If it's about selling merchandise then it worked on me.
