This Shirt Is Legendary In Celtics History. It Symbolises The Arrival Of Our Rebel Leader Fergus ' The Bunnett ' McCann Who Saved Our Club From Administration / Liquidation At The 11th Hour. The Canadian Businessman Not Only Envisioned But Literally Rebuilt Celtic Park Into The Stadium Now Renowned Throughout The Footballing World. The Doubters In The Scottish Media Mocked His Dream Of Celtic Building a 60,000 Plus Stadium Capacity Consisting Of 50,000 Season Ticket Holders. Decades Of Domination Then Followed.

Differences Between Player Issue And Replica Issue Shirts:-
This Listing Is Primarily Aimed At Highlighting To The Celtic Faithful The Numerous Differences Between Player And Replica Shirts Regarding This Iconic 1990's Celtic Shirt. Far Too Many Fellow Celtic Fans In The Past Have Been hoodwinked Into Believing They Were Purchasing A Bona Fide Players Jersey - When They Weren't.
Examination Of The Player Shirt Material Reveals It To Be Softer To The Feel With A Diamond Embossed Pattern Repeated Throughout. This Is Entirely Different To The Replica Shirt - Hence The Reason I've Included, For Your Perusal, A Close-Up Image Of The Diamond Pattern.
The ' UMBRO ' Manufacturers Logo Sited On The Front Upper Right Chest Section Is Merely Screen Printed Onto The Replica Product Coarser Material Whilst Elaborately Embroidered In White Silk Type Threading On The Players Version.
The White Sponsorship Logo ' CRSMITH ' Is Likewise Screen Printed On The Replica Shirt Yet Displayed In A More Vibrant, Elegant, White Coloured, Protruding, Felt Type Material On The Players Version For A More Profound Affect On The Television Camera Visuals.
The Club Badges Are Entirely Different. The Replica Size Measures Approximately 110mm In Height By 91mm In Width. The White Coloured Background Comprises Of A Thin White Diagonal Lined Pattern. The Overall Size Of The Celtic Badge Is Approximately 65mm In Diameter. The Player Issue Size Is Generally Smaller In Comparison, Measuring Approximately 105mm In Height By 85mm In Width. The White Coloured Background Is Formed By A Plain Cotton Finish. The Size Of The Club Badge Is 70mm In Diameter, Which Is Slightly Bigger Due To The Embroidered Letters And Thread Inside The Players Badge Being Much Thicker.
The Collar Dimensions Are Notably Bigger On The Replica Version. Please Note When Comparing Player V Replica Garments I Intentionally Compared Player Issue Size XXL Against Replica Issue Size XXL Shirts
