Which Scottish Football Team has the Most Expensive Vintage Shirts?
The worlds of football and fashion have been interlinked for the longest time. Wearing a team’s shirt is not just a way of showing support but also a fashion statement – just ask the kit designers for PSG.
In this football and fashion crossover, vintage looks are definitely in and interestingly enough, classic kits of Scottish clubs are in demand.
Keeping that in mind, we researched the prices and availability of classic kits of different Scottish clubs to see which ones had the highest and lowest average price, as well as determining the most expensive kits of Scottish football clubs.
We used two marketplaces for classic shirts – classicfootballshirts.co.uk and vintagefootballshirts.com – as the sources for prices and availability. We scraped the available kits per club and calculated the average price point for a classic shirt for each Scottish club.
Here are the results:

|Queen of the South||36.495||2|
|Inverness Caledonian Thistle||30||1|
With a price point of £225 for a classic shirt, the club with the highest average price point is Falkirk.
The price for the Scottish League One outfit, however, comes with a caveat – they only have one classic shirt available in the market.
