In June 2007 these vintage match-worn 84/85 home & away and a 1989 away liverpool football shirts were sold on Ebay. The shirts are made by Umbro and Adidas. The sellers added the following information:
1984-5 LIVERPOOL HOME PLAYERS SHIRT CROWN PAINTS
This is a genuine players shirt, prepared for the European cup match against Benfica on 24th October 1984. (note that then, only in Europe could we have more than one sub).
The ban on sponsored shirts in televised matches was not lifted until the 1983-84 season. Before then the Coventry chairman Jimmy Hill tried in vain to change their name to "Coventry Talbot" as part of a partnership with the Coventry-based car makers.
He did, however, succeed in sending them out in kits on which the Talbot logo was integral to the design .
So integral in fact that they had to wear a totally different strip whenever the cameras were present.
Coventry City thought they were on a winner when they introduced a kit that incorporated the logo of the Talbot car manufacturing company into the design but the TV companies boycotted them until they introduced an alternate strip for televised games.

Geniune Alan Ball match worn England home shirt from the successful 1966 World cup campaign. It is a white round collared Umbro no 7 number shirt.
It was worn against either Uruguay in the Opening game of the Finals, the controversial & heated Argentina quarter final or the semi final against Portugal (which was widely acclaimed as the best game of the tournament).
I have included a piece taken from the original Sothebys brochure back in 1998 to act as an indication of its authenticity - the shirt was originally given by Ball to his sister.
Any questions please contact myself directly. I am private collector not a dealer.
The shirt is supplied with full provenance from both Christies & Sothebys.
