In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol – it was the worst 20 minutes of my life. – George Best.
This classic jersey was worn by George Best when he played for the Los Angeles Aztecs in the 1970’s. He scored 15 goals in 24 games in his first season and was named as the NASL’s best midfielder in his second. His lifestyle should be a testament to young players everywhere.

Amazon.com also has another version of the LA Aztecs jersey. I’m personally more a fan of the white one but I thought I’d include both.
Not quite vintage but it is an NASL tean. This is the Carolina Railhawks. Support lower division soccer in the United States with one of these T-Shirts. I think in the future you’ll see a lot more lower division teams selling their brand nationally. This shirt is only $15! Get it at soccer.com.
Not too sure what to say about this one other than it’s blue. If you’re a fan of the St. Louis Stars then I would think this is a must have. Not many identifying marks on it. $90 from Amazon. 1970’s St. Louis Stars Track Jacket – Blue
I like to think of Pothunting as keeping American soccer history alive. They feature the authentic designs that the teams actually wore back in the day. Most of the teams are from the East Coast, which makes perfect sense. There are quite a few teams I haven’t heard of which is pretty coool.
Their website isn’t very search friendly which is a pet peeve of mine. They use images instead of text which of course has its downside. Of course this has nothing to do with the t-shirt quality but I thought I’d point it out because it is holding them back from reaching a larger audience. I’ve complied a list of teams they are currently selling.
Golden Gate Gales
Scullin Steel FC
Bethlehem Steel FC
New York Giants
New York Select
New York Brookhatten
Fall River Rovers
Fall River Marksmen

You can argue that this team is one of the reasons why we have Major League Soccer. Lamar Hunt’s team, which existed for 15 years, was the longest lasting team in the first NASL era. They won one title in 1971. As far as jerseys go, I like the stripes and the collar. Copa has made quite a few good looking retro jerseys, with this one not being an exception to the rule. Amazon is selling it for $59.99. Perfect to wear to an FC Dallas game. 1978 Dallas Tornado Home Retro Shirt
