Thoughts on the "Captain's Collection"?

I'm quite a fan - a lot more ummm.... 'figure friendly' for those of us who aren't elite sportsmen...

Nice to finally see the club do something with the heritage aspect of the merchandise.
One of the big +'s of getting out of that fanatics deal.

Personally I'd like all 4 of the heritage shirts, guaranteed the Next and Goldstar ones will sell very well, possibly even better than the new home shirt, glad to see some 1880's shirts too.

When I saw Captains collection I thought Birdseye or fish fingers.
But no.
Some good products which I will consider purchasing.( er indoors permitting )

Good work by the club. Took what the fans were asking for and delivered it. I can see these selling well, whether they sell well or exceptionally well will depend on price. If these are £50/£60 a pop they will be out of stock before the end of the weekend. If they are £90 a shirt then sells might be a bit slower.

Are the retro sponsors - Next and Goldstar - chipping into the Club, or free advertising? (Is Goldstar still a thing?)

Next are still a Tigers sponsor, not sure how much they'll have chipped in. Might just be a sweetner to keep them onside during the pandemic when cutting costs, particularly sponsorship might be crossing people's minds.

GoldStar, was that the electrics company that merged/got bought out with someone else to become LG?

Yep. Goldstar became Lucky Goldstar around the time they sponsored us but then rebranded (and became far bigger) as LG. :smt001

As you say, Next still a sponsor.

I think these are great. I expect people will be disappointed by the price, but then again, it’s a club shop not a charity shop, as they’ll be priced like any other sports merchandise! :smt003

Big fan of the next one so my fraying original can have a well earned retirement.

........but only at the right price.

I like the retro designs, especially the two with the really old school club crest, but at £70 I'll stick with my vintage 94/95 Cotton Oxford jumper. Not sure what the quality is like, but as a comparison Canterbury have just launched a range of Lions shirts that are less than £50.

Love the short sleeved light green one. Reckon I will be buying one of them. My favourite shirt was that with a tetley bitter logo on the right breast. Wore it to death when I was 21 travelling around the world.
£55 is a bargain to make me feel like that young buff carefree fella again.....
