A George Best Game-Used #7 Manchester United FC Home Shirt. 1960's. Umbro.
A Goerge Best Game-Used #7 Manchester United FC Umbro Manufactured Home Shirt, dating to the mid-late 1960's. George Best is regarded as one of the most skilled footballer's ever to grace the game, and in 1968 he famously led Manchester United to the European Cup as well as landing the Ballon D'Or as the best player in Europe. George Best game-used items are rarely made available to the public, and the garment up for auction today is perhaps as highly regarded as it comes. This garment is dated to the peak of George's Manchester United career and is a truly iconic style seen in some of the most memorable images of the Northern Ireland International's career. The shirt was gifted to another English First Division player and later released by this player. The shirt is believed to come from the 1968/1969 seasons.
Upon close inspection, you will come to find the following signs of use throughout this stunning Umbro manufactured top: age is evident throughout, but the garment remains in superb condition structurally for it's age. bleeding/discoloration is evident in the neck trim, sleeve cuffs and squad number. a few very small holes exist throughout the garment, but nothing terribly obvious. the Umbro manufacturer's label in the neck has faded, but is completely legible. there are some dark markings to the red fabric, determined to most likely be original markings from use/pitch markings. overall, this top shows it's age in all the right ways, while maintaining superb condition.
