The seller added the following: This shirt dates to 1967/1968 is made by Bukta and is a size 38 chest. It was a gift to me when I was a schoolboy from Tony Waddington.

Bear in mind this is an age before club shops sold replica shirts so this is a rare item. There is a hem of approx. 9.5cm, overall condition is good for it's age. {the team photo is not included in sale}According to info from the Evening Sentinel this is a cold weather shirt, I can confirm the material is thick. There are no moth holes or rips or tears, on the white stripes there is the sort of foxing you find on old photos, also one tiny ink mark the size of a pen tip. The shirt has not been washed for 45 years so these issues may clean up. I do not believe it is a game worn shirt as there is no evidence of a number being sewn on the back. As a Stoke fan growing up in London I was pretty much on my own so I wrote to Tony Waddington about the team and he always found time to reply. I asked him who the supplier was of the team shirts in order to contact them myself, a few days later this shirt arrived in the mail with a note from Tony.{ I wish I still had that note} It has been one of my most prized possessions, I am emigrating and need to thin out my collection.
