History: On April 18, 1946, Jackie Robinson––wearing this shirt––stepped onto the field for the Montreal Royals at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ, against the Jersey City Giants and became the first player in modern history to break Organized Baseball's unwritten "color line." Robinson (#9) went on to lead the International League in batting average and fielding percentage, and was promoted to Brooklyn the following season.

I was blown away by the quality of the garment. I stopped by a big box store and saw what they were charging for a baseball jersey, and lets just say the quality wasn't there for the price. After seeing that, I had no issue spending a little extra for something that will last for years to come.
I received my Montreal Royals road jersey and I love it. Very high quality and attention to detail. Even my wife was impressed and she is a tough critic when it comes to clothes. Price was not cheap but you get what you pay for and this jersey was worth the money. Only negative is the delay between ordering and shipping but I guess that’s a result of the hand-work required and it’s not a big deal as long as you know what to expect.
I recently received my order of this jersey and couldn't be happier! Amazing quality and fit, and it just looks amazing!
Well-made, looks exactly as expected and the stitching is phenomenal. The fit, however, isn't great - it's much looser in the mid-section than expected while being snug in the shoulders and across the back.
Bought this jersey for my brother who is a huge Jackie Robinson fan and he loved it. Definitely will buy another jersey from you guys soon!
