The Old Lady of Italian football Juve are the most successful club historically in the country and have had some world superstars pull on their shirt – Charles, Sivori, Platini, Zidane, Rossi, Baggio and Vialli. Take a look at the vintage Juventus shirts you can get to emulate your heroes:
The classic black and white striped kit of Juventus is the thing that has always stood out most for me. I suppose as I got into football Italian football had a reputation of being dull, slow and defensive, so I never took that much notice of it – although my interest was piqued when Championship Manager Italia came out! Despite the association with defensive football they have had some amazing attacking talents – Platini, Baggio, Vialli, Del Piero, Inzaghi, etc, etc. Steve
Favourite player: Alessandro Del Piero – club and country legend.
Favourite kit: 1984 home shirt. The classic kit of all classic kits. Available from Amazon (see below for link)

1989 Home Shirt
You can get your hands on the 1989-90 home shirt (above left) worn by the likes of Baggio, Schillaci, Hassler and Reuter, when under the stewardship of Italy legend Dino Zoff the club did the UEFA Cup and Italian Cup double.
In the Italian Cup, Juve struggled in the early rounds, beating second-tier Cagliari after extra time and then only squeezing past third-tier Taranto 201 at home. They then picked up their form before beating Milan 1-0 in the two-legged Final with the goal scored by Roberto Galia.
In the UEFA Cup, they beat Italian compatriots Fiorentina in the Final, the first final between two Italian teams in the history of the competition which Juve won 3-1 on aggregate. Roberto Galia also scored in this Final, which was quite remarkable as the central defender only scored five league goals in 157 games for the club, but notched 3 in 11 in the UEFA Cup that season as well as his goal in the Italian Cup Final.
1996 Away Shirt
Or you can get the 1996-97 away shirt (above right). This retro football shirt was worn during the season Juve won the Serie A title and reached the Champions League Final, a competition they were defending having beaten Ajax the previous season. Juventus stormed through the Champions League group stages, winning 5 and drawing 1 of their six games. They made light work of their Quarter-Final and Semi-Final stages as well, scoring nine goals across the four games. However Scotland International Paul Lambert played a pivotal role in the Final, tightly marking Zinedine Zidane to negate the effects of the mercurial Frenchman, and opponents Borussia Dortmund were 3-1 winners.
Juventus led the Serie A table from December and lost only three games all season. Their miserly defence was the best in the league and played a large part in the club’s title triumph, conceding just 24 goals in 34 games. At the other end of the pitch the strike partnership of Christian Vieri and Alessandro Del Piero were equally important, with Nicola Amoruso and Michele Padovano proving able backups.

About Vintage Football Shirts
Vintage Football Shirts also offer original shirts rather than reproductions with each shirt marked for its condition – from BNIB (brand new in bag) to Excellent (may have tiny defect, may not be noticeable).
There are almost 100 Juventus shirts to choose from. You can get hold of the 1992-94 home shirt (above left).
1992 Home Shirt
The early 90s were a period of little success for Juve, despite the arrival of Roberto Baggio for a world record fee. Baggio finished second top scorer in the league with 21 goals from 26 starts, however a lack of goals from other sources, Andreas Moller was the only other player to reach double figures meant the club finished fourth in Serie A.
However, they did win the UEFA Cup thrashing Borussia Dortmund 6-1 on aggregate over two legs, a record score for a UEFA Cup Final. The Baggio’s scored 5 of the 6 goals with Roberto bagging two and Dino (who is no relation) three.
2000 Home Shirt
Alternatively there is the 2000-01 home shirt (above right). Despite it being a classic and very retro football shirt this was far from a classic season for Juve. Although they were runners-up in Seria A, they were knocked out early in the Coppa Italia and suffered the ignominy of finishing bottom of their Champions League Group behind Deportivo La Coruna, Panathinaikos and Hamburg.
However, the club’s total of 73 points was actually more than they gained the following two seasons when they won Serie A. It was Juventus’ 29th game of the season that proved pivotal when they drew 2-2 with Roma who went on to win the League. Juve were even 2-0 inside six minutes but Japan international Hidetoshi Nakarta pulled one back with 11 minutes to go and then his long-range drive was parried into the path of Vincenzo Montella for an injury-time equaliser. Juventus won their next five games, but finished two points behind Roma in the table.
CLASSIC JUVENTUS MOMENT
It is 1995-96 and Juve win their first Champions League on penalties.

1984 Away Shirt
The early to mid-80s were another hugely successful time for the club and their third scudetto of the decade in 1984 meant they had won 20 Italian titles, allowing Juve to add a second golden star to their shirt, thus becoming the only Italian club to achieve this.
The driving force behind their success in this period was Frenchman Michel Platini. The goalscoring midfielder was awarded a record three European Footballer of the Year titles in a row in 1983, 1984 and 1985 – scoring 28, 25 and then 29 goals in the respective seasons.
1967 Home Shirt
