My boyfriend and I had visited the ***** League Museum in Kansas City and he marveled at the Leones jersey. This was a perfect Christmas gift that took him by surprise and also surprised him!
Beautiful jersey!!! Thank you for everything you guys do to keep us up on the vintage apparel.
The flannel is expertly constructed -- you can sense the quality of the materials and accents, as well the time and care, used in creating the piece. Fits a bit big but as designed. Very happy with it and would order another from EFF in the future.
