It is so nice I had to put it on a display case.
For a Clemente enthusiast, this is just a fantastic jersey. The blue and red go together in the fashion of the old Dodgers wool jerseys. The fabric is authentic in looks and feel. Great job!
Love the Quality of the Patches and Jersey itself. A tad bit Long but Overall a Phenomenal Jersey. Will be back for More Gear in the near Future.
I was born in Santurce, have been a Cangrejeros fan all my life but never felt as I do now with my just received road jersey on !!! Puerto Rico's winter ball league's name is the Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League and I can't wait for the season to start and go to the games wearing this fine piece of history. Love EFF, have bought this jersey, a jacket, a t-shirt and several ballcaps form you. Next: 1-derful ***** Leagues merchandise !!! Thanks, EFF, keep on playing ball !!!
EFF knocked it out of the park. The red and blue pop on this gray flannel. Fits perfect. I’m obsessed with Santruce clothing.
