2002-04 Manchester United Home Shirt Size Medium - Beckham #7
Team: Manchester United
Era: 2002-04 (Used for the 2002-03 & 2003-04 Barclaycard Premiership seasons, the 2003 FA Community Shield match, and the 2004 FA Cup Final)
Name/Number: Beckham #7
CONDITION: VERY GOOD
I would say that this shirt is in very good condition; especially for shirt which is well over 10 years old, with the felt fully intact with minimal dis-colouring. Please bear in mind the #7 has been attempted to have been glued back on, in addition the letters are made using felt; not printed.
Pit to Pit Measurement: 21 inches
Shirt Length: 29.5 inches
Made in the vein of all Nike shirts during 2002-04 era, this shirt is quite baggy and thus I would also suggest that this shirt could fit a size large also.
After finishing in Premier League record lowest finish of 3rd place; Sir Alex Ferguson put the brakes on his retirement and made Rio Ferdinand the world’s most expensive defender when he was signed for £30 million! The moved worked to perfection as ‘the Red Devils’ reclaimed the Premier League title in 2003 and reached the Carling Cup final. While David Beckham departed in the summer of 2003, his successor to the number 7 jersey was signed in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo! While United would finish 3rd again in the league in 2004, they would win their first FA Cup since 1999! This shirt began Manchester United's 13 year association with Nike, and this was most certainly one of their best offerings during that business relationship. This was also the last United shirt to feature a felt sponsor, before transitioning to the printed decal.
