Is there a set amount/percent of sale that County boards get for O'Neill's or other merchandise sold by them and other companies like through Elverys or Lifestyle?

Question some people here may know the answer to. In the old days had all GAA jerseys white collars?. Say for example since the time of colour photography the Meath or Longford jerseys I think have always had gold collars to match the gold in the county flags (or if not a collar at least a gold trim around the kneck). But was this the case back in the old days when GAA jerseys had 'rugby' style collars? (it's impossible to tell when looking at black and white photos)?.

Bigger clubs in Dublin have their own O'Neills outlets and online stores. None of them sell Dublin Inter-County Apparel. County boards make money from merchandise, clubs same with own brands. It is quite lucrative especially for larger clubs with thousands of members.

I dont know the answer to be honest, your question though stoked the memory of teams have unusual coloured numbers on their jerseys...Laois had their traditional two blue hoops top and bottom with a white centre hoop and then a yellow number on the back which was fierce hard to see against the white hoop...Kilkenny had a black square for years with a white number, and when the black square was discontinued they just went with a white number for a few years, again a bit of an eyeful to see against the black and amber stripes...I think Laois might have went with a red number too in fairly recent times...
