France kits in braille?

The French Football Federation as a cool tribute to Louis Braille lined up.

To honor the 200th anniversary of his birth, the French national soccer team will have jerseys made with the names written in braille.
Coach Raymond Domenech said Monday the jerseys will be worn for the exhibition game against Nigeria on June 2 in Saint-Etienne.
The team is joined with a federation for the blind and some uniforms will be available for sale through auction.

Sounds like a great idea, definitely original, and for a good cause.
