FAQ's

FLANNEL QUESTIONS

WHAT KIND OF FABRIC DO YOU USE?

  • We use authentic wool-blend baseball flannel which is the same as the fabric worn at the end of the flannel era in the late 1960s.

AREN'T THE JERSEYS ITCHY?

  • Not really. They are quite comfortable, and unlike contemporary baseball jerseys, they breathe. You do need to wear a t-shirt or other shirt underneath your flannel.

CAN I HAVE MY NAME PUT ON THE BACK?

  • Names on back were not normally worn in the flannel era. If you really want to add a name, we can do it for an extra $25. Just let us know.

DO THE SHIRTS HAVE NUMBERS ON THE BACK?

  • Numbers are included on all shirts from 1929 and later (this is when teams generally started to wear numbers). Shirts before 1929 are not made with numbers, but you can request a number (or change a number) for an extra $25.

WHY DOES IT TAKE FOUR TO SIX WEEKS TO GET A SHIRT?

  • We make over 600 different historic baseball jerseys. There is no way to keep them all in inventory. The beauty of our system is that we can make almost any historic jersey you want, since they are made one at a time. We cut, sew and letter up your flannel the minute you order it. All here in our Seattle, WA factory.

    CAP QUESTIONS

    I LIKE NEW ERA CAPS. ARE YOUR CAPS LIKE THEIRS?

    • No. A modern cap with a stiff, high crown is just not a "vintage" cap, no matter what emblem is put on it. Our caps faithfully replicate historic professional baseball caps from 1900 to 1970.

    I JUST GOT MY CAP AND IT DOESN'T FIT!

    • Don't worry. You can send it back for an exchange.

    WHY IS MY CAP VISOR "FLOPPY"

    • Caps that seem to have a softer visor are made that way on purpose! Pre 1940 ballcap visors were made with softer visors so players could fold them up and put them in their back pockets. We have found that most of our customers fall in love with this style but if it's not for you we would be happy to process a return/exchange for you.

    CUSTOM ORDERS

    CAN YOU MAKE A CUSTOM FOOTBALL OR HOCKEY JERSEY?

    • The minimum order is 12 pieces. Please email sales@ebbets.com for more information.

    I WANT TO ORDER JERSEYS / HATS FOR MY TEAM. CAN I GET A BETTER PRICE?

    • Yes. If you order 12 or more flannels or 48 or more hats (all of the same style) you qualify for a team price. Please contact us.

      I DON'T LIVE IN THE U.S. WHAT ABOUT CUSTOMS, DUTIES AND TAXES?

        • Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the U.S. may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees").
        • The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such Import Fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country.

      I HAVE A GIFT CARD, CAN I APPLY IT TO A CUSTOM ORDER?
