History: The second incarnation of the Pittsburgh Hornets played in Civic Arena until the NHL expansion Penguins started in 1967. This is an early example of an "alternate" sweater. Great crest on this one!
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.

Great customer service. The craftsmanship of the jersey was perfect. Fit was exact to size. I love the look and design. Love it’s made in the USA and man made. Only down side is it is a hurry up and wait. It is so worth the price and the wait. Perfect in make and customer service.
