Please do not confuse or compare the above jersey we are selling to other similar Majestic Cooperstown "Cool Base" jerseys being sold by other sellers online. The Majestic jersey we are selling above is made in the USA of "100% Heavyweight Polyester Fabric" which is of far superior quality to the much lighter and "flimsy" "Cool Base" jerseys being sold elsewhere. As well the jersey we are selling features the team logos, and Players Numbers fully stitched on the jersey, whereas the "Cool Base" jerseys feature the team logos "Printed" on the jersey. Although the jerseys may look the same, there is no comparison in quality

Cannot rave more about this company! Continually use top quality materials and excellent meticulous workmanship. This is the THIRD Mays jersey I've got from this company and they've all been excellent quality. I purchased several jerseys in 2016 and they're all still worn in circulation with little wear and tear.

Fantastic job. From initial call to product arriving. Owner spent plenty of time on phone so I would get exactly the jersey I wanted, from the proper era. It arrived earlier than expected. Highly recommended. I tried at least 5 different places to get. Even the SF Giants didn't have one.

The attention to detail is impressive. I like the fit and feel of this jersey. I can't decide whether a wool jersey would have been preferable. But that would be the only "criticism". I have received many compliments on the jersey already and with good reason. It looks good and really stands out. Its not like you see many people walking around in a NY Giants jersey. I will definitely be buying another jersey from Custom Throwbacks.

This is an incredible jersey for the price. The jersey material is good quality, the stitching is professional, and it looks great. Sizing is also true to standard Majestic-type sizes. Sure, it's not wool and the sleeve piping isn't an exact historical match, but very few will ever realize it. I'm getting so many compliments on the west coast and I can't wait to take it with me to NYC! Let's Go Giants!

This was a very hard jersey to find online and i was fortunate CTJ's got it. Now my only small issue with the jersey is that the black & orange ring around the arm sleeve's could have been a tad bit lower like in the willie mays photo. But other than that this is a Really Really nice jersey, the double stitching of the letters and numbers are great and it just feels like a piece of nyc history that some or most new yorkers dont know about. And the jersey looks even better with my ny giants new era cap :)
