2012-13 Barcelona Away Shirt Size Medium – Jordi Alba #18
Era: 2012-13 (Used for the 2012-13 La Liga season)
Name/Number: Jordi Alba #18
Sadly, this particular shirt has seen better days, with the LFP badge on the left arm starting to come away, and most prominently, the name and numbering poorly attempted at being re-glued; naturally these defects are reflected in the price.
Pit to Pit Measurement: 20 inches
Shirt Length: 27 inches
Made in the Nike ‘DriFit’ style of 2012-13; the American sports giants were still trying to get the right balance on the ‘Dri-Fit’ style fitting, so this shirt offers a little more room than the more modern day ‘Dri-Fit’ offerings, and thus, if you normally wear a size large and like a tighter fit; this shirt may be perfect for you.
Nike have never shied from producing left-field away strips for Barcelona, and after the previous season’s critically acclaimed black away kit; Nike came out with what I coined the ‘Banana and Orange’ strip ahead of the 2012-13 season! A striking rendition that utilises a dip-dye effect; starting (from the top down) in orange before rendering into yellow half way down, and with the addition of yellow shorts and socks, making for an instantly memorable, if not ‘marmite’ ensemble! Hyperbole aside, the bright colours are brilliantly complemented by print on the sponsor, name and numbering, and Nike swoosh, while paying home to Barca’s ‘Blaugrana’ roots with the respect colours used as a trim along the side panel.
The notable players that season were:
Lionel Messi, David Villa, Christian Tello, Alexis Sanchez, Pedro, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Alex Song, Thiago, Sergio Busquets, Jonathan Dos Santos, Cesc Fabregas, Sergi Roberto, Dani Alves, Eric Abidal, Marc Bartra, Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Adriano, Martin Montoya, Victor Valdes, Pinto
