Brooklyn Eagles Jersey
Beautiful jersey, but being one of my first purchases with Ebbets (waiting on other orders) I realized that for jackets I go up a size, but for jerseys I get my regular size. So this jersey is too big for me. But I can’t wait for the other items to arrive. Thanks
Very good - the jersey was of the quality expected and the sizing was correct ( I had recently bought a USA baseball 1934 Japan tour jacket and the sizing was very off - didn’t come close to fitting). It looks great and the quality is why I keep coming back.
