Yesterday, on the hallowed ground of Butlin's Minehead Resort, the 2013 Players Championship began.

The darts world's great and good have assembled for three-days of action from the oche, as heroes including The Power and Raymond van Barneveld dig deep for a chance to win the £250,000 purse.

Like cricket, the history of darts is littered with legends, so it seems an appropriate time to take a look at the glory days, when a player's shirt was an extension of his personality, rather than a billboard. Gentlemen, we salute you.
