Reading had a bit of a split personality with this one. In one way it's very retro with the oversize old fashioned badge but at the same time there's amore contemporary (for 1996) feel with the white distortion pattern in the blue hoops. The badge on the shirt celebrates 100 years of football at Elm Park. Ironically the club left Elm park a year later to go to the newly built Madjeski Stadium. Mizuno did very few football shirts in England so this is a rare and valuable addition to the collection.
