Kit collection

Hello, all!

We have former Tottenham defender Jason Cundy at the top today. I promise I’m not picking pictures of people in the 1992 away shirt on purpose (but I do still love it).

Ramble of the Day

I’ve got a question: Which kits do you own? For me, it’s quite a lot.

My sisters and I have a shared collection, and if we’re not counting repeats, we have 33. The tops ended up in our collection for a few reasons: the obvious one is supporting a team, and a few were impulse buys from our travels, while a number of them are just random ones we ran into that were cheaper than usual. To list the ones you’re looking at, from left to right:

  • Rimini FC, home
  • Vintage Tampa Bay Mutiny, away
  • Afghanistan women, home
  • Vintage Chivas USA, home
  • Næstved BK, home
  • United States, 2019 home
  • United States, 2014 away
  • United States, 2019 away
  • Portland Timbers, 2017 home
  • The Netherlands, 2019 home
  • United States men, 2017 Gold Cup
  • France women, 2019 away
  • Bayern Munich, 2014-15 home
  • Albania, 2016 home
  • AS Roma, 2015-16 home
  • Australia women, 2019 home
  • Belgium, 2018 home
  • United States men, 2010 away
  • New York Red Bulls, 2011 away
  • Tottenham Hotspur, 2012-13 home
  • Atlético Madrid, 2018-19 home
  • New York Red Bulls, 2010 home
  • Colombia, 2018 home
  • Bayern Munich, 2018-19 away
  • Seattle Sounders, 2017 third
  • Valenciennes, home
  • Tottenham Hotspur, 2014-15 home
  • New York Red Bulls, 2018 home
  • Tottenham Hotspur, 2015-16 third
  • Vintage Miami Fusion, home
  • New York Red Bulls, 2015 home
  • Tottenham Hotspur, 2013-14 goalkeeper
  • New York Red Bulls, 2014 away

I didn’t realize how many it was until my sisters and I decided to find out, and it really is no wonder that we’ve had to find three different places to house them all.

tl;dr: What does your kit collection look like? (Big or small, all are welcome.)
