For years, I have waited in vain for them to produce a blank floppy collar jersey, so that I could wear it with shorts. I'm now convinced that it will never happen, so I'm willing to buy this obviously non-1976 jersey because I still love the floppy collars. I want to wear it when the White Sox come to Washington this April.

Does anyone own this? A bad review from a WSI poster is the last thing that could prevent me from spending $200 on this.

I think those jerseys get a bad rap. I prefer the all black away jersey. Either way, throwing down $200 for a novelty item in the wardrobe never made sense to me.

The away jersey was navy blue, not black.

They are kinda expensive but i've been looking for those uniforms for a long time too.

I've got some hideous sport jackets and ties from the 70's and 80's if you guys are interested.

I don't think I would buy a original 1983 jersey but these new 83 jerseys really don't look too bad. I'm thinking they can do the same thing for the 1976-1981 jerseys.

No they didn't. They were horrible. :D:

I'm still waiting for Mitchell & Ness to make this one in blue. I'd buy a blue one in a heartbeat.

The road jersey has been available for awhile.

I think you should match up the jersey with a nice pair of dark navy umpire shorts and some "white socks" with sandles to complete the look! :tongue:

Pesonally, I would have a hard time forking over $225 for arguably the ugliest jersey in team or MLB history, however I can appreciate your love of nostalgia. Not sure if you checked e-Bay, but I haven't seen too many authentic throwback jerseys for less than $150.00.

Good luck!

As a middle schooler growing up in Beverly, I sported the Chet Lemon #44 version of that jersey ... and dreamed wistfully of one day also owning an Eric Soderholm #12.

Looking at them now ... wow.

I've never seen one anywhere. Care to share where you've come across one?

I bought a Fisk road jersey at Grandstand back in 2007. It's been awhile since I've been in Grandstand but I would imagine they are still there.

I actually have two of these jersies. (Fisk) I bought an XL and a 2XL last year when Mitchell and Ness had a Black Friday sale. I tried to return the 2XL, but couldn't because of a no return on sale items policy. I have been thinking about putting the 2XL on ebay.
