The Celtic Jersey: The story of the famous green and white hoops told through historic match worn shirts

Paul John Dykes

Regular price £30.00

Tax included.

From the publisher:

The Celtic Jersey is a comprehensive and evocative history of one of the most famous and iconic football shirts of them all. Through a breathtaking collection of historic match-worn jerseys, this stunning coffee table book tells the story of the green-and-white hoops, and the great players who have pulled it on. In doing so The Celtic Jersey also provides a unique insight into the history of the club itself.

So much more than a football shirt, 'the Hoops' are steeped in cultural and political significance which makes them sacred to followers of Celtic Football Club and instantly recognised the world over. Compiled with the help of the key collectors of match worn Celtic shirts, this unique publication showcases both home and away jerseys worn by club legends from Jimmy Johnstone and Henrik Larsson, to current icon Scott Brown. With many of the jerseys originating from the personal collection of legendary kit man Neilly Mochan, the book includes several opposition jerseys swapped during Celtic's glorious 1960s and 1970s European Cup campaigns, and a jersey from the infamous Intercontinental Cup tie against Racing Club of Argentina in 1967.

In the words of the late Tommy Burns, "When you pull on that jersey, you're not just playing for a football team. You're playing for a people and a cause."

Message from Stanchion:

This was a preorder, where all preorders received £5 off the RRP, a bookplate signed by the author and a free A4 Celtic FC-related print from madebyfrankie. Frankie is an illustrator and lifelong Celtic fan based in Scotland. Her work focuses primarily on football and can be found on Twitter and Instagram. All prints are printed on 210gsm photo paper.

Preorders closed on Friday 2nd December - the book was originally scheduled to published on 25th October but this has now been delayed until 15th December. Orders have been placed with supplier. Please allow two weeks for delivery within the UK and please see our website for shipping times for internatonal orders.

Please note the slightly higher postage cost - this is because the book is heavier than usual and packaging it up takes it over the 2kg limit for small parcels as outlined by the Royal Mail, so it will be sent as a 'medium parcel' which costs slightly more. You can get free shipping on all orders over £50 so it's worth combining this preorder with other products to take you over the £50 threshold.

If the preorder was combined with any other product, they will be sent as one order once the preorder has arrived - they will not be sent separately.
