Wigan Badge - Orig Or Repro?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if they did it in that colour, but if they did it would have been a late one. The original one was in red background, which I always thought was because it was a stylised Lancashire Rose. I always worried about the first almnighter badge which was similar in yellow.

That one was available from (at least) 1976 - might have been earlier, dunno, but I bought one in 76!

Been asked by a mate for some opinions on this:

Looks like an original badge to me. (lot of work for a reproduction), but I can't date it. Later than 1975 I guess...

Most of the Wigan badges were repro'd in the early 90's - quite close to the originals, but stitching was slightly narrower, giving a finer image (i.e. too good.)

Nobody bothered to do a 'Mecca' badge.

That's because Mecca folk dressed far too smartly to WEAR badges, you complete and utter divvy!
