The promotion-winning season of 1982/83 saw the centenary badge incorporated into the home shirt for the first time. A different version was also used, with a lower first blue hoop, displaying the Adidas symbol and new badge in white.

Both designs were often used in the same match, as seen here during the victory parade after the final game of the season.

The FA Cup final shirt was used throughout the season away from home, expect for the trip to St James Park where QPR had to wear Newcastle's away strip, presumably having only travelled with the blue and white hoops.

This one sold for £127 on ebay in 2018. Think it's a modern reproduction as the first blue hoop is higher than the norm. Nice all the same.

This away replica from 82/83 sold for £235 on ebay in 2018 as being 'may have been worn by Glen Roeder'.  With an incomplete badge it's rare nonetheless.
