I received my order exactly one day before hoping on a plane to hand deliver this special gift to my father in Japan for his birthday! He proudly wore it to a Yokohama baseball game (home of the original Taiyo Whales) and he was an instant celebrity! Nostalgia fans who recognized the jersey wondered where he got it and asked to take pictures with him. He was so happy and proud! Thank you for making my fathers birthday a very special one to go down in the books! He’s already mowed to wear it to every home game! Thank you!
