Memphis Chicks 1944 Home Jersey
History: The Chickasaws, “Chicks” for short, represented Memphis, Tennessee, in the Southern Association from 1912-1960. In 1944, the club featured the incomparable Pete Gray, an outfielder who only had one arm after losing his right arm in a childhood accident. Yet despite having to do everything with just his one arm, Gray starred for the ‘44 Chicks, posting a .333 batting average and even adding 5 home runs en route to claiming the 1944 Southern Association MVP award.

I ordered this to replace an original jersey that I had that belonged to my grandmother when she played for the bayside Chicks as a girl. It looks and feels just like it! The detail is meticulous and the jersey itself is beautiful. It is an awesome reminder of her and her love for the sport that I can wear anytime. I received it 5 weeks after placing my order without any problems. Highly recommend to anyone looking for authenticity, both look and feel. Thanks Ebbets!
This wonderful baseball shirt looks awesome on my husband john and I can tell that he really enjoys wearing it. He said that nothing comes close to an authentic shirt like the one he now has. I made the perfect gift for his birthday.
