US Tour Of Japan 1934 Road Jersey
History: In 1934 Connie Mack led a squadron of AL stars including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx on a wildly successful tour of Japan. The team was greeted by thousands of ecstatic Japanese fans who lined the streets of Tokyo shouting "Banzai Babe Ruth!" The goodwill did not last long, as the two countries were headed on a trajectory toward war. Catcher Moe Berg was sent along as a spy by the U.S. government.

I recently purchased the US Tour of Japan 1934 Road Jersey replica and added it to my collection of vintage era jerseys which I have purchased from EFF. Just like my other items the quality, authenticity and attention to detail are outstanding. I can not be more pleased with my EFF experience with respect to both the products themselves and the excellent customer service. Great item/s and great service -
I spoke with Ebbets Field customer service about doing a custom order for this particular jersey. I wasn't sure about how the sizing would work out until I received the jersey, but I must say that they accommodated me very nicely. The jersey didn't fit, so they sent out another one as soon as possible. Some of the best customer service I have received and I will be buying other jerseys very soon from Ebbets Field.
Looks great, fits good. Haven't worn it out yet but think it will get some positive comments.
My experience was great, start to finish. I actually received the jersey sooner than expected. It looks great, just like Moe Berg's that I saw recently at the Hall of Fame.
