IT'S Retro Round, which means a journey back to a time where mullets flowed as free as the beers at fulltime in the sheds.

Fox Sports commentator Andrew Voss is a big fan of the old-school jerseys.

"As a kid I was a collector of jerseys," Voss said.

"I always saved up my pocket money to buy jerseys and the first jersey I ever bought was a North Sydney jumper."

Voss singled out the North Sydney Bears jersey from the mid-1970s as his favourite "for simplicity".

"Just hoops, no sponsorship, no logo — it was just a black bear — and you put your own number on it or you got some electrical tape and made a number.

"The simple jumpers were the best. They had collars, they were long-sleeved and they were loose.

"If you tackled another kid in the backyard game you could pull the jumper and stretch it."
