Another classic Levski shirt and another classic Adidas design. This one is from the 1996-1998 seasons, when Levski thrashed “eternal” rivals CSKA Sofia in the 1998 cup final 5-0. The pictures below are from the cup final. I’m not very sure about the authenticity of this shirt, but I don’t care too much since—in my mind—it is one of Adidas’ best templates, one that was used across Europe in the mid to late 1990s. On the front is the sponsor, BKC-2, screen printed along with the club’s classic badge, also screen printed. On the back is the number 19, screen printed, in the classic three dimensional style. This shirt is sized extra large and definitely runs large in terms of fit, as shirts from the era traditionally did. For more Levski shirts please see the 1993-94 home version here and the 2006-07 home version here.
