The V-neck collar shirts were used between 1977-1982, whereas HITACHI sponsor was added in seasons 1979-1980 and 1980-1981 only. For the 1980-1981 season, the HITACHI sponsor adopted on the shirt is bigger than that in the 1979-1980.
So what is meant by "Big Hitachi"?
It's the kind of sponsor logo adopted in season 1980-1981, with the alphabets in big-square shape and occupied bigger area on the front of the shirt.
Clearly we can see that the letter "H" and letter "I" goes beyond the Umbro motif and club crest. This will only be the case for "Big Hitachi" sponsor logo.
