The 90s Liverpool kit worth hundreds as retro collectors drive huge demand

Liverpool fans of a certain age will remember some of the club’s more interesting kits from the 1990s and if you have held on to yours you could be in for a big pay day.

From the famous giant Adidas three stripes over the shoulder of the home shirt in the early 1990s to the cream away shirt, there are plenty of iconic designs in the Anfield club’s back catalogue. The green and white quartered kit of 1995 has even been used as inspiration for the club’s most recent away shirt by kit maker Nike.

However, it is actually a third shirt worn by the likes of Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler and John Barnes that is fetching eye-watering prices in resale markets.

The yellow third shirt worn between 1994 and 1996 was a popular choice with Liverpool fans. The design is an instant classic, with hooped Adidas stripes on the sleeve and collar instead of down the shoulders, giant Liverpool badge patterns across the main body and even a single button on the collar.

The shirt sold well during the two years it was used by the club but The Hobby spotted the kit on sale in top football shirt retailer Classic Football Shirts’ Manchester store for a whopping £200.

Classic Football Shirts does sometimes sell with a mark up but eBay sellers are also listing high prices for the shirt with good condition versions listed for anywhere between £100 and £150.

The yellow third shirt is not actually the most valuable shirt from that era. That accolade falls to the club’s series of shirts with Candy as a sponsor. Home shirts are listed for as much as £385 on eBay for shirts with the classic sponsor, while the famous green Candy away shirt from 1991 is priced at around £140.

With retro football shirts a huge industry and clubs releasing replica versions themselves it may be time for Liverpool fans to dig out their old kits if they want to make some huge profits.
