91 and counting

A long, long, time ago - the U.S. started its soccer history.

Now, we can keep up with the current edition.

This may sound a bit crazy but I would love a replica of that original USMNT jersey. The idea of wearing a jersey that looks like the one your team was wearing 91 years ago would be truely retro and really cool.

I think the MNT did have retro jerseys at one point, although I think it was to commemorate the win over England in the World Cup. Still, they looked pretty cool.

They did have those 1950 retro jerseys, for a match against Panama that was Eddie Johnson's impressive sub hat trick.

However, I'm with east river, I like the 91-year old design even better. I think a reissue of these would do well.

Toffs has a semi-similar one here:

But it's not as nice as that white one with the dark blue collar.

Hum the 1916 version do look better. The blue collar with the big crest/badge is very different from the modern look. The real 1930 jersey wasn't a bad look either. But I think the current jersey is the best look we've had in a while. That one will be the last one I buy for a few years.
