Art of Football presents: Bootleg Legends Football idols with their loyal jersey sponsor

We talked about it many times: tifo and passion for football lead us not only to affect us tremendously not only with our favorite footballers, but also to become attached to the jersey sponsors who have positively marked a positive period of our life. How can we not think about Nintendo when we hear about Gabriel Batistuta? How can we not imagine the historic Dr. Martens badge when Paolo Di Canio appears on TV show? How not to connect Diego Armando Maradona and iconic Mars sponsor, or Steven Gerrard with Carlsberg? It's such a deep relationship, that between great champions and historical brands, that the British collective Art of Football (which only a few days ago presented the new collection of bucket hats made with football shirts) tried to remake it, focusing strongly on the nostalgic and evocative effect that this mix is able to arouse on the fans from all over world. 

As you can see, the final result of this experiment is really cool: the prints, reproduced on t-shirts and sweatshirts in various colorways, are already on sale for just £ 20 on the official Art of Football online store.
