White Sox jersey on eBay


WSU151

Recommended Posts

The seller has about 5 other jerseys available on ebay. They look hand-sewn. The seattle pilots '69 jersey looks a little off, but casual observers (meaning non readers of this board) probably would not notice.

Based on his latest, a Cubs Billy Williams, he's clearly making them himself and selling them. I think I'll e-mail and politley ask if he has the proper copyrights to do this legaly...

edit - I checked his feedback, and he has bought and sold a bunch of vintage patches and stuff lately, including the doubleknit uniform guide on CD-ROM...

So tempting... I've wanted one of those Pilots roads for the longest time. M&N actually made them for a brief period, but stopped - something about difficulty in finding the blue will blend material, which made no sense to me when I heard it.

i dont know what the deal with these are...seems he is admitting that they are reproductions, but i didnt see him saying who made them.

the pants on the cubbies ones seem to be made by wilson...im not sure if they were the actual producers then.

They could be something he put together, if so, hey they look good. I buy to wear, not to frame, so that would tempt me to buy that brewers one if i had 150 hanging around...which i dont

Were teams using standard Varsity block numbers back then? I honestly don't know, but I thought at least early on, most teams used sans serif numbers, which his #4 is not. Good work though...

I confirmend he's making them himself... I e-mailed him direct asking a question. Here's my e-mail, along with his response:

My e-mail "Do you have the proper copyrights to be making and selling these jerseys? If so, Can you make them in other sizes? I'd be interested, but they sizes you have for auction wouldn't fit me... PLMK."

His response "Sure. Some of them I can do in other sizes, some not. Were you looking for something in particular?"

Seem's fishy to me...

Yeah exactly, it's the kind of thing I'd certainly be inclined to look the other way on.

BTW what's that double knit uniform guide? I thought there was a uniform guide in pdf or html or something that was uploaded a long time ago, but I can't find it anymore - I did want to look into it about figuring out the specs to put a chief wahoo patch and maybe sabathia 52 on an Indians jersey I have.

(I wonder why I'd do that, I don't like chief wahoo PC-wise, but i still wear the hat sometimes. I got one of the I hats though :-)

It's only available as a CD-ROM for purchase now. I'm not sure the site, you could do a search, as I know it was a topic a while back...

Did you realize that in the description, he says "This jersey is approximately 40 years old"???

Based on my communications with him, yes, he is making the jerseys. Um, OK, I know this is tough to figure out, but you buy an old jersey (say a forty year old one) and then sew on a patch or two, and instant reproduction uniform. Yes, he is doing a great job. Yes, they are very accurate to the origionals. Yes it is illegal.

Chakfu...

Was this what you were looking for?

MLB Jersey Style Guide...

I'm going to try and avoid too much free pub, but there is a link to a sample chapter that covers the Angels. Extremely well done, and I would think representative of the rest of the program.
