Going back to the days of the old NASL Vancouver Whitecaps were a comparatively famous name while not perhaps on the level of the New York Cosmos. The club carried on in various guises and incarnations until 2010 when the franchise (god, I hate using that word in relation to football) were introduced into MLS. This particular shirt is an actual players shirt and I actually know the provenance of it. It came from American defender Greg Janicki who played in a pre season friendly against Manchester City. He played only ten games for the Whitecaps before being released and ironically ending up backing in the reformed NASL. The shirt is excellent as I've come to expect from Adidas and a very much valued part of the collection. I am extremely indebted to Dave from www.awaykit.com for giving me this fabulous shirt.
