Please do not confuse or compare the above jersey we are selling to other similar Majestic Cooperstown jerseys being sold by other sellers online. The jersey we are selling is made of "100% Heavyweight Polyester Fabric" which is of far superior quality to the much lighter and cheaper "Cotton" jerseys being sold elsewhere. Although the jerseys may look the same, there is no comparison in quality

The Throwback series of jerseys from Majestic are high quality and truly replicate what the players wore on the field. This particular jersey represents Orel Hershiser when he had one of the finest years any pitcher ever has for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He not only won the Cy Young award but set a new record for pitching consecutive scoreless innings and practically carried the team on his back to a World Series victory.
For those who have never worn or touched a player jersey before, you should know that they are made of heavy duty polyester. Most of us think of this material as representing poor quality clothing but this is what real major leaguers wear. It's durable, it breathes, and has many benefits, but it won't feel soft against your skin and the uninitiated might have that moment where they assume it's cheap because it isn't cotton or wool. Don't be fooled by the common perception and don't be worried, this is the real deal.
The only real drawback to this product is the price. Partly due to the quality workmanship and partly due to the licensing fees, these jerseys don't come cheap. Make sure you pick one from a player you truly love and will want to enjoy representing for years to come. If you do, then the money spent will be a great investment in the many years of enjoyment to come.
