Chunichi Dragons 1969 Road Jersey
History: The Dragons (sometimes transliterated as "Daragons" on their uniforms) started out as the Nagoya Club in 1936. Michio Nishizawa pitched 28 complete innings in one game in 1942 against the Taiyo Whales (Japan, like the U.S., continued professional baseball throughout World War II). The Dragons nickname was first adopted in 1947.

I own over 60 baseball jerseys from M and N, Ebbets, and all the modern types. This jersey is in my top five, the blue wool is so beautiful in person and I love the Dragon patch.
Got this yesterday in Seattle! Wonderful quality and so happy with my purchase.
