Kevin Keegan joined Liverpool in 1971 and immediately became a favorite amongst the kop.
During his time with Liverpool he won the league title, UEFA Cup, FA Cup, and in his final
game, the European Cup. When Keegan left in the summer of 1977, he had ensured his
status as one of the greatest Liverpool players of all time.
The white away shirt was an exact reversal of the traditional red home shirt utilised
during the same period. The home shirt featured an all-red body with
white cuffs, whilst the away shirt simply reversed the colours, an all-white body with
red cuffs. This shirt has long sleeves, embroidered badges, and a stitched-on number 7
to the rear of the shirt.
Kevin Keegan wore this paricular shirt between 1974 and 1976. In stark
contrast to the modern game, where players and coaches receive countless items of
branded LFC clothing, it was likley that only one set of these shirts was ever produced.
The sheer rarity of this shirt, and the events that must have been witnessed during the
multiple times it was worn, makes this shirt possibly the most valuable shirt in my collection.

The white away shirt is considerably harder to find than the traditional red home shirt as it
was worn only around 3 or 4 times a season (usually in away games against Nottingham Forest,
Arsenal and Manchester United). Genuine match worn shirts will have embroidered
Liverbird badges and either embroidered or rubber embossed Umbro logos.
