History: The Bisons were charter members of the AAFC a major pro league that gave the NFL a run for its money from 1946 to 1949. Three of its teams were eventually absorbed into the NFL but Buffalo (who changed their name to Bills in 1947) did not make the cut despite an enthusiastic effort by its loyal fans to save the club. Although the NFL voted 9-4 to accept Buffalo, it took a unanimous vote, and Chicago's George Halas was a main force in blocking Buffalo's entry into the NFL. The Bisons played in the old War Memorial Stadium.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.

Yes waiting 8 weeks is a long time, but it was worth it. This is a great wool football jersey. Every time I have worn this jersey I have received compliments - people really seem to like the striped sleeve look. Can only give this 4 out of 5 stars, as it came with white (instead of gray) numbers and stripes on the sleeves. Still looks great, but would have liked to have received what was advertised, and what the actual team wore back in the day.
This is a great jersey! It has a great color scheme, very comfortable, and yet feels like an old football jersey.
I was pleased with the jersey, but the production time was entirely too long. As a result, I'm hesitant to order again.
