|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."
