They are not cheap - but I love the quality of M&Ns stuff. Interesting choice to use Melton instead of Allen or Wood. That was Allen's MVP year, I'd think that would be a bigger seller.

I would spend that much on a floppy collar jersey. Not on this one, though.

That is, without a doubt, my least favorite jersey in our history.

Yep...collars...shorts...zippers...we have a history of odd jerseys prior to arriving on the classic Silver/Black look.

Yep...collars...shorts...zippers...we have a history of odd jerseys prior to arriving on the classic Silver/Black look.To be fair, zippers have been used by a number of teams dating back to the Cubs in 1937. In fact, during the early 40's, something like half of the teams in MLB wore zipper-front jerseys.

The Phillies wore zippers as recently as 1986, incidentally.

True...but still an oddity. Not commonplace at all - and certainly not in the last 40 years.

This one is not authentic, but looks like a decent remake. What do you guys think of it?

I kinda like 'em if only for the fact that those are the first road jerseys I really remember.

And as much as I like Melton, I'd go for the Ed Herrmann one if it were available.

This was a remake, apparently it was for a softball team.
