History: College football royalty can be found in the "Trophy" case of Penn Football History; John Heisman, namesake of the Heisman Trophy for best College Player in the country, along with John Outland, namesake of the Outland Trophy for best Lineman in the country, and "Concrete Charlie" Bednarik, namesake of the Chuck Bednarik Award for best College Defensive player of the year, ALL wore the trademark navy & red striped sleeves as players on the Penn Quakers football team. The Penn Quakers have been members of the Ivy League since 1956 (Winning 18 titles along the way) and play their home games at historic Franklin Field (oldest football stadium in the USA), Philadelphia, PA.
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.

I have been a customer since the late 80s when EFF opened. Originally just baseball, of course, and I remember first being shocked that they were adding other sports. Thank goodness they did, as I absolutely love their football jerseys. I went to Penn, so this is a natural and it is beautifully made like all EFF products. The blue/red sleeves are so gorgeous I would want it even if I did not go to Penn. I also have a LA Bulldogs jersey, that I wear so often it is ridiculous as it is so comfortable. If you have never bought from EFF, you might be put off by the price. Don't be. Their products are over the top quality, and worth the money.
Well-made jersey that is beautiful in appearance. Fit is good for a guy who is not built like a GQ model. Great product for the price.
