Just a great jersey, all around!
I was really excited to get this jersey in the mail. Being a native of Detroit, MI and learning so much about the history of the ***** League, I had to get a piece of American history. It fits great and I can't wait to wear it and potentially answer questions about it. I highly recommend Ebbets for authentic ***** League jerseys. I've also purchased a second ***** League jersey, so you know they are legit!
Quality is an understatement!! Customers service was excellent!!
I was excited when I got the jersey, but had to exchange for smaller size. It is a well quality made jersey, would recommend to anyone. Waiting on the replacement one to wear and show off!
