Grey outline around the number panel? The bottom might be shadow, but the vertical line doesn't look that way.
Black stitching up the side of the Macron jumper and a convenient fold at the bottom of the panel giving an almost perfect illusion of a grey outline.

Prototype PI 2006 Crows jumper. Quite different compared to final thing, as it didn't have the weird side panels. Featuring different Camry box too.

(It is certainly not a prototype replica because the material is of the PI kind and its missing cuffs.)

The jumper also explains a couple of irregulaties on the 2006 replicas.
It explains why the home replicas did not have side panels in 2006, the replicas were going off that early side panel-less design that the prototype used.

Also explains why the red clash guernsey replicas had a different Camry box. Adidas/AFC did not get around to updating the Camry box to the final version instead of the prototype version (as seen on the prototype) on the red guernsey replicas.

It was probably just me, but I always liked those side panels. Probably my favourite Crows home jumper ever.

It's a strange one, almost like the gold/blue dress viral photo.

I wouldn't have even thought it was silver until it was pointed out! My eye went to the Coopers logo haha. Depends on what computer screen I look at it on, one definitely looks silver the other looks teal

Seen on Instagram today 👀. Complete with NRL logo at the bottom right. Any ideas on what this might be?

Factory stuff-up, probably. I can't explain the weird shoulder panels – maybe a prototype design? – but Reebok were manufacturing for the Melbourne Storm at the time, so that would explain the accidental jock tag error

This explains why the crows randomly stuck with the 2016-17 clash after the poll.......

Wonder if there's a prototype of option E somewhere?
It's because a member on here beat them at their own game. The Poll opened and Option E was miles ahead. Going by what Mero has stated, their would be a bunch of Option Es packed away in boxes somewhere.

Anyone know much about this early 2000's richmond jumper? It looks grey in all of the photos but that could just be the lighting.

Depending on the number on the back it's either 2004, 2005 R1-12, or 2005 R13-23. Because those were the only years that Richmond had the tiger on the collar.

Also it must be the lighting that makes it look grey since:
