Sankei Atoms 1966 Home Jersey
History: Minor league veteran Dave Roberts joined the Atoms in 1967 and quickly became one of Japan's premier sluggers. Roberts was replaced by Joe Pepitone in 1973. The team was named after the popular Japanese TV show "Atom Boy", and this jersey sports the Atom Boy patch on the left sleeve. The Atoms were a part of the Japanese Central League.

The receiver is certainly happy with the product. Unsure about sizing, we decided on large (because you can't add fabric but you can take it away), as on paper, there was very little difference between medium and large. Turns out large is a little too large for a tall, slim yet broad shouldered young man.
My Sankei Atoms 1966 Home Jersey arrived and it was well worth waiting for. The quality is outstanding, as advertised and by reputation, and the jersey really exceeds all my expectations. The materials look and feel like they're from another time. I immediately ran out and purchased a special garment bag with cedar inserts to protect this very special item. Hope to purchase more Ebbets Field Flannels to make a proper collection. Recently added a Tombow Unions hat; the quality matches that of the jersey. Many congratulations to your excellent company and wishing you continued success!
Easy process, and the best part is forgetting you ordered it and tracking showing up in my inbox! I am waiting to see if the production team goes with my idea so I can buy a few more!
