This shirt has the honour of being the only goalkeeper shirt in my entire collection. I don't really have any interest in goalkeeper shirts but in this instance I allowed an exception. This shirt design certainly put the club on the map. Regardless of your views on Che Guevara, his presence on the shirt certainly makes it a unique and special piece that instantly became a must have for any football shirt collector.
