Just as Ralph Parker yearned for an official Red Ryder carbine action 200 shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time, I longed for a Sears Roebuck catalog Washington Diplomats official replica NASL game jersey, which Santa brought in 1979. It was impressive looking, with the only alteration being the removal of the third stripe across the chest not to infringe on the Adidas logo. Happy Holidays.

Rod Sangala was kind enough to send along this beautiful signed Johan Cruyff cover of Soccer Digest. Check out his blog at http://myvintageautographs.blogspot.com/. This photo provides a beautiful close up of what I think were the most unique jerseys in the NASL. Below are front and rear views of a Cruyff gamer that came straight from the team.
