Baseball Has Arrived: A look At Mitchell & Ness And The MLB BP Jersey

In 1904, two athletes, Frank P. Mitchell and Charles M. Ness partnered up to create a small sporting goods store in Philadelphia, PA.

They couldn’t have known then that over 110 years later their company, Mitchell & Ness, would be one of the biggest names in the licensed apparel business — selling unique hats, jerseys, and other clothing items to sports fans all over the world.

The two got started by handcrafting sporting equipment such as golf clubs and tennis rackets. After over 20 years of specializing in sports equipment, Mitchell & Ness got into the apparel business by manufacturing uniforms for high school, college, and semi-pro sports teams.

As 1933 rolled around, the company hit it big, making it to the big leagues as the on-field outfitter for the Philadelphia Eagles. After becoming the on-field outfitter for a number of other teams and growing the brand, the company found their niche in 1983. While helping a man repair game-worn jerseys, Peter Sisto, the son of the owner at the time discovered thousands of yards of discarded wool flannel which gave him the idea to make vintage uniforms and clothing.

Since that time, Mitchell & Ness has become the leader in the vintage-style team apparel, offering classic versions of jerseys, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and hats. Whether it is the NBA, NFL, NHL, or MLB, Mitchell & Ness has the throwback gear today’s fans crave, including the MLB Player BP Jersey, a unique style statement that allows you to show off your favorite former player or team this baseball season.

This authentic, mesh, team-color jersey is an exact match to what was seen on the field in the late 1970s. These jerseys, made from lightweight, breathable materials, were an ideal piece because they kept players cool and comfortable in the sun.

All of these unique characteristics of the original batting practice jersey from Mitchell & Ness still ring true in today’s model, as each jersey shows off the spirit and style of the era that it was originally worn in — making your look as authentic as possible.

These jerseys contain either the large team logo on the left chest or the team name across the chest, the player number, and a few select teams offer player name above the number on the back.

Looking to cheer the Cubs on to a second straight title? Hoping your small market team makes the leap to the postseason this year? Or hoping your playoff regular makes a run to win it all?  As another season arrives, anything could happen.

With 28 different options of the authentic Mitchell & Ness BP Jersey in stock, you can find the style you need to cheer on your favorite team or simply remember your favorite classic player this season at Eastbay.com.
