ebay soccer jersey SCORE!

Yes, one of the worst football shirts of all time has finally found it's way to my collection. I've wanted one of these abominations for years and years now and recently got this one off of ebay.

It had a starting bid of $4.99 and a buy it now of $12.50. $12.50!

I'll give you $12.50 just for holding onto to it for the last 15 years instead of trying to lowball you and get it for $9 and risk losing it.

Now, without any further ado, I give you the 1991-93 Arsenal away strip!

I mean just LOOK at that thing! It really captures the times of dye sublimation gone berserk in the early 90's. It's a regular inhabitant of the "Worst Jerseys of All Time" lists adn a classic reminder of "just because you can, doesn't mean you should".

Why on Earth did the sponsors ever go along with these things when the patterns were so busy you couldn't see their logos?

Man, am I happy! :woot:

oh christ, I think my eyes are going two different directions after seeing that thing. too bad it had to be an Arsenal shirt, eh?

I still want one of the '01-02 home jerseys, if only because that was the first season I watched the EPL and adopted the Gunners.

Mother of pearl, I own the sublimation spectacles of the 1995 WLAF and the 1996-7 Baltimore Bandits, and even I wouldn't touch that thing. Guys gotta have his limits. Congratulations, though, on owning something you'll be able to post and say "Thread over!" any time the "ugliest jersey of all time" discussion pops up around here.

Now, if you can get your hands on a 1980 Tucson Toros...

So, are you gonna wear that, or just have it in your possession?

Oh hell yea, I'm going to wear it! I was thrilled to find out it's tagged as an XXL, meaning it's probably more like an XL, which means it will fit with no problems.

I was in England just before and just after they wore that style. A couple years later here in Minneapolis I saw someone wearing it at a concert and complimented them on it and they told me they got it at a thrift shop in town no less for 50¢! Fifty freakin' cents! And without having to buy a plane ticket to the UK as well. I've been on the prowl for one since, which has to be over 10 years.

I'm still jealous of Anders Limpar and his long sleeved version. Lucky bastard. That just means there's more of that pattern for others to have to look at!

Awesome. I've kept an eye out for the Norwich shirt of the same era, which also ends up on those "worst ever" lists. Of course, I'm looking for something to fit me, so I'll probably never get it. :P

Ha ha! I keep seeing that one referred to as the "bird poo" jersey. :D

If I finally got mine, here's hoping yours is just around the corner, sized appropriately of course...

Butt. Ugly.

That being said, I'd love to see some ugly 1996 L.A. Galaxy throwbacks at Beckham games (just to taunt his ass).
