Led by aging star outfielder Cool Papa Bell (#18), the Grays won back-to-back Negro World Series titles in 1943 and 1945.

EFF makes a beautiful product. And the fit is excellent too! Never take fit for granted!!!! Why some ****** decided that polyester would be superior to wool in the game of baseball is a mystery. And the opportunity to honor those Gods who played professionally before they were allowed to join the equal playing field is something that every real fan and human being should take advantage of. (They also make great hockey sweaters — yes sweaters — and I also picked up some Japanese League baseball jerseys). I’m a true EFF fan and, no, I don’t get any compensation from them or have any relationship with anyone who works there or has a financial interest in the company.
I’m enjoying my Josh Gibson Grays Jersey and Fitted Grays Hat Great fit but because it’s wool, it’s a little warm but worth it, to me. Several people have asked where I got them so I send them your way. Maybe a gift card in my future Great Jersey, I will be purchasing more in the future!
I purchased one several years ago and always get compliments wherever I wear it. Very high quality for all materials. Got to educate some of the younger crowed at a Nationals-Cubs game in Wrigley a few years ago about a team who also played in Washington, D.C.
