History: The Yale Bulldogs posted their best record since 1927 when Head Coach Jordan Olivar led them to an 8-1 finish along with capturing the championship of the newly-formed, formalized Ivy League in 1956. Before his career ended in 1963, Olivar would lead the Bulldogs to their second Ivy league title with an undefeated 9-0 record in 1960. As of today, Yale has a total of 15 Ivy League titles to their credit. The Yale Bulldogs currently remain members of the 8 -team Ivy League conference and play their home games in the Yale Bowl, in New Haven, Connecticut.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.

Its a great item! Well made. Fits well. The only thing I have to say about it is that is a much lighter blue than I saw on the website. I was expecting a dark navy and what I received was a marine blue. I am not complaining mind you, its a nice jersey, and still a nice colour. They do say that the colour can vary but I didn't realize by how much!
Thank You Ebbets Field. Im very happy with my beautifully made, custom made item. I will be back for other items. Well Done!
