I've been perusing Ebbets Field jerseys from afar since 1988. I love the idea of faithfully reproducing vintage jerseys for contemporary baseball fans. I'd never bought one...until I saw this beauty. As a Knoxville-area native and Tennessee Smokies fan who watched games in old Bill Meyer Stadium, I couldn't resist. Great jersey. Amazing quality. Authentic vintage to the smallest stitch. This jersey was definitely worth the wait.
