I wouldn't lose any sleep over it they couldn't get half the kits right when they only produced 55 teams and teams didn't change kit every five minutes :lol: ... I think Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles must have worked in that department at SSG :wink:

They had an away kit very similar to the 302 at one stage, so maybe that is where the kit came from.

Only saw this now. Oddly, I spent an hour yesterday looking at Nacional kits. I have been using a Ref. 18 or Ref. 271 or a Ref. 447 as my Nacional teams when I play derbies against Penarol 8) The contrast between a Ref. 271 and Ref. 030 is stunning, my friend :)

It's possible that SSG got mixed up with the word 'Nacional'.

The 'Nacional Torneo' is the equivalent of the FA Cup.

Won in 1978, when SSG introduced the kit, by Independiente wearing the same kit SSG produced.

'National'...Champions...could easily be misconstrued.

That's a good call and thinking outside the box ian, and you know what?..it wouldn't surprise me one bit if you ain't right.

SSG should stand for 'Someone Stupid Guessed' :lol!: :lol!: :lol!:

Wouldn't surprise me either Mark.

It's easy finding pics on the internet now...back then, how did you find pics of a team from Uruguay easily? I guess that's why so much got misinterpreted back then.

I wonder if that's how they actually did get their kit info Mark.

I think I read somewhere before on here, that SSG used to write to the different FA's of each country. I may stand corrected on that.

However...when you look at some of the mistakes made, and photographs around and misunderstandings like maybe on this kit, then you can see why they did make so many mistakes.

I guess Nacional was added to the Catalogue as they won their Championship in 1977. Shame they got the kit wrong, as it would have been a lovely team for any collector to have. This was my interpretation of it on Santiago a while back. Sun faded blue shorts in the photograph may have been how SSG would have interpreted it as well. :roll: :lol!:

No idea Ian, surely there was a worldwide list or chart of who played in what each season in case of ECWC/European colour clashes??

This info must have been available to clubs on some level, or maybe it was literally 'Boss!, We got Bilbao next round, pass me the blower and who out the kit staff speak Spanish?'

I doubt whether Associations were that fickle, as to what teams played in what colours, as much as they are now Mark.

When you look back at old photographs and footage, it was a right mish mash of kit colours. Often thrown together so as not to colour clash with the other team. Or...because it was often on black and white tv, teams would have to go light/dark...as in one team dark shirt, light shorts, dark socks. The other light shirt, dark shorts, light socks. For example...A box set of ref 1 and 2 playing together on black and white tv, would look exactly the same, if you get my drift.

Seems so much easier these days with the advent of the Internet.

I have a friend who wrote to a number of European FA headquarters back in the day he got official lists back from most but they would say things like ...

Ajax White and Red
Feyenoord Red and White
Sparta Red and White
AZ Red and White

:rolleyes: :lol!:

Try finding on the internet, a list of Official Club colours from the FA and other Countries Associations from the 70's and other era's...I can't find anything.

Just the usual Historical kit type websites.

You'd think something would be out there.
