1968 would see wide stripes returning to Depor and I must say the era of my favourite shirts.
These shirts are incredibly rare and my search continues for these elusive designs
The wider stripes went down well so they would stay with one minor change; the addition of a collar.
Through the years not many shirts would have collars and this would be the first year since around the mid 50’s that a collar would return.
Unsure why the collar did not stay but the design reverted back to the previous seasons.
As was the normal the numbering would be in leather and stitched to white cloth that would then stitched to the shirt.
(Peñarol – D. L. Coruña August 1975)
At the end of the league of 1974/75 Depor did a tour of Argentina and then flew to Uruguay to play a match against Peñarol. Unfortunately that match was cancelled due to rain.
Due to the above the shirt is in almost as new condition but does show signs of ware, indicating that it was possibly used in earlier match.
The only changes through these years would be the manufacturer and perhaps the numbering.
Research is showing that Depor would use both round and V neck collards during this season.
This is the rarer V neck with red leather numbers. Shirt came directly from an ex-Depor player.
