Tokyo Kyojin (Giants) 1936 Road Jersey
History: The fall season of 1936 saw the Kyojin win their first of eight consecutive Japanese Baseball League championships. The star of the club in the 1930s was pitcher Victor Starffin, an ethnic Russian who was the son of a Russian military officer. A phenom in the Japanese youth baseball ranks, Starffin originally intended to give up to go to university, but was blackmailed into playing professionally in Tokyo after his father was jailed on a charge of manslaughter.

I have had my eye on this item for over a year but could never justify the price. However, I decided to go for it and can say with absolute certainty that I’m over the moon and it’s definitely money well spent! The vintage flannel is superb quality all round and I love the look and style of this particular jersey. I went for small and it fits slightly larger than my modern, small jerseys so check carefully if going for bigger sizes. As a resident of the UK I had to wait about 5 weeks for the parcel to arrive. Again, it was worth the wait. The only down side....I need to get saving for my next purchase!
I bought this with hopes of going to Japan and wearing it to a game. Season is about over so I will do it next year. I can't wait!
Loved the shirt Just wayyy to big & im normally a 2xl I had to return for refund Didn’t want to wait another 3-4 weeks for dffrnt size
I love everything about this jersey. The chenille patch, the number on the back, the quality of the craftsmanship, everything is so great and so unique. The fit is just right and there are literally no flaws in its manufacture. My first but definitely not my last item form Ebbets. Hockey jersey next!
