Founded in 1874, the oldest football team in Edinburgh take their name from the novel “The Heart of Midlothian” by Walter Scott. Hearts are the only team outside the Old Firm to ever do the Scottish League and Cup double, which they achieved in 1959-60. That was the last of their four titles and the high point of their most sustained period of success, under manager Tommy Walker. Famous players of this era included the so-called “Terrible Trio” of Jimmy Wardhaugh, Willie Bauld, and Alfie Conn Sr., plus Dave Mackay, John Cumming, Jimmy Murray, and Alex Young. The fourth most successful club in Scottish history, Hearts’ most recent success was winning their eighth Scottish Cup in 2012, with a 5-1 victory over local rivals Hibs. Here at New Vintage Football we have re-created some of the Jambos’ most famous shirts from 1970-2017.
