The 20 Ugliest Goalkeeper Jerseys in History, Part I

We're taking a break from Gloves I've Loved. We will be revisiting it in a few weeks, because there's a chance I could be reunited with an actual, real-life pair of my second-favorite glove ever, the Uhlsport 023. For now, though, let's enjoy some chromatic catastrophies from the 1990s, the decade where, regarding goalkeeper jerseys, taste went to die. These are in no particular order, and I'm only including mass-produced jerseys, so don't expect to see Jorge Campos's handmade neon nightmares.


Hi, I'm Edwin Van der Sar, two-time winner of the Champions League. Do you like my jersey? No? Well, what about my haircut?


If Flock of Seagulls had a goalkeeper, this is what he would look like.


What. The. Hell.


David Seaman exults. "We've won! I can take this off now!"


Tim Flowers, you've reached the pinnacle of your profession. Congratulations, now go put this on.

Those are pretty 'loud.' Remember what we were on the cutting edge with a yellow jersey? Had to send away to NY or Cali for those babies!!!

Marino, by any chance do you remember the name of the place we ordered gloves and jerseys from? I remember it was some place that advertised in Soccer Corner magazine, but I can't remember the name.
