Personalized Cooperstown Replica Jerseys

One of the more frequent questions I'm asked by readers is how they can find an "authentic" Rickey Henderson jersey. You can always find numerous jerseys for sale on eBay, but most of these are manufactured second hand, and are not direct from the manufacturers.

Other than Rickey's yellow throwback A's jersey that was released during Hall of Fame Weekend, and can still be purchased here for $119.99, I did not know of any official sources of Rickey jerseys. Until now, that is!

I received an e-mail from the Hall of Fame's Online Store that there are now select jerseys available that can be customized with not only your own name, but that of any player as well. You could always buy personalized jerseys for yourself, but they would not allow you to get a name/number combination of an actual player (ie Henderson/24, Mantle/7, etc.).

Now you can get your own pinstriped Henderson jersey, or if you're not a fan of pinstripes, the Yanks road grays are also available. I guess, technically, there shouldn't be a name on the back of home jersey, but that's a technicality I guess you'll have to overlook.

Not a Yankees fan? Why not celebrate Rickey's World Series championship with the Blue Jays. Not many people remember, but Rickey was standing on 2nd base when Joe Carter hit his now famous home run.

There are currently 18 different jerseys to choose from, so not all teams are represented. I was really hoping for an early 1980's button-up A's jersey, so hopefully these will prove popular, and they'll add more teams and styles at a later date. I'll never be able to own a real vintage Rickey jersey, but a nice throwback, that I could actually wear, would definitely be an acceptable alternative.

I've scoured eBay for many many hours over the past 5 years or so. I was able to acquire around 50 authentic jerseys made by the correct manufacturer (old school Rawlings, Russell and current Majestic) for all the teams Rickey played for. Liebe in Missouri makes the authentic lettering for all teams and actually letters some of the teams uniforms. I even have any patches if they were worn. I'll show you some pictures when I find some.

Thanks for all the info! You can definitely find some authentic jerseys, but as you said, you need to look closely for them, and can usually only get them on the secondary market. This now allows you to get one straight from the source!
