QUESTIONS ABOUT FLANNEL JERSEYS

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.

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 one.

WHY DOES IT TAKE FOUR TO SIX WEEKS TO GET A SHIRT?
We make over 400 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.

 

GENERAL 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.

CAN YOU MAKE A CUSTOM FOOTBALL OR HOCKEY JERSEY?
The minimum order is 6 pieces. Please emaicustomorders@ebbets.com for more information.

I WANT TO ORDER JERSEYS / HATS FOR MY TEAM. CAN I GET A BETTER PRICE?
Yes. If you order six or more flannels or 24 or more hats (all of the same style) you qualify for a team price.
