Here is a link to a site selling MLB jerseys for $19.00. As for the Braves gotta go with Gene Garber



8-o B-) ;-D


Are these the same jerseys the MLB.com sells? Why are they so cheap? I hope it's the same materials and everything...



I'd guess Korean made, doubt they're the same as what MLB.com sells.

They're not close. I have a couple football ones that I got from a Chinese wholesale site like this one. I have a Peyton Manning "Nike" jersey that feels/looks good around the numbers, but the rest of the jersey is mesh. I also got a "Mitchell & Ness" throwback Elway jersey. This one is sweet though. You can't tell the difference.

Finally, I did get a white Matt Kemp one too and it is a mesh material. The neck is a little funny and the "Dodgers" across the chest is a little low. It's fine for the price, but don't expect anything resembling a decent replica.

For the classic, I'd go Hank.

If you are a fan from the 90's forward and want to instantly connect with other people from that era then the recommendation of Mark Lemke is a great one. Everyone from that era loves the Lemmer.

Any of the stars of the last 25 years or so would be great if they are someone that you personally connect with: Murphy, Maddox, Glavine, Smoltz, Avery, Chipper, McGriff, Gant, Justice, etc. Same with the next tier guys or more obscure fan favorites (like Otis Nixon or Sid Bream).

Tons of great choices so decide what you want and go for it! The only way you can go wrong is with some well known overpriced, underachieving player who was a star somewhere else and then didn't move the needle in Atlanta like Kenny Lofton, Mike Hampton, etc.

Just put Puig's name and number on the Braves jersey. Or Matt Harvey and 33.
