Seattle Steelheads 1946 Home Jersey

History: The West Coast Baseball Association was an attempt at a western Negro League competitor, but it only lasted one season. The Seattle entry in the league was actually Abe Saperstein's Harlem Globetrotter baseball team under a new name, that of a local variety of salmon. We created this jersey for the Seattle Mariners' salute to the Steelheads in 1995.

This is my ninth jersey (and a similar number of caps … alright, maybe 10). Once again, I am very pleased. The jersey is of the finest quality flannel, thicj and warm (thank God no one plays in these nowadays in July or August in the South!! Thw workmanship and attention to detail are great. Too bad there is no accompanying cap to purchase!!
As I said in my initial review, the jersey was too small. They were very helpful in rectifying the situation. I'd tried a medium jersey on in the store, it fit perfectly, but when I ordered the jersey I wanted in medium, it was too small. They made me a large one, and while it took some time, it's a very nice looking jersey and fits pretty well. As it's made of wool, it's a great jersey to wear to the ballpark for those chilly nights in April and September. I wish they'd make a matching hat, as the only hat I have to go with it is a kind of crummy stadium give-away Steelheads hat the Mariners gave out to honor Seattle's one team from the ***** Leagues.
My experience so far is incomplete. I brought the jersey back to the EFF production site and they were very helpful and understanding, they took the jersey and are currently making me a new one that will fit. So far, happy with the customer service, and the jersey I received, while it didn't fit, was really nice. I'm looking forward to getting the larger jersey.
