  1. This is arguably the stupidest insert I have ever seen. Do they have an actual jersey to compare it to see whether whoever stitches in the Phillies names uses exactly that style of cursive? And even if they do, does anyone care? Maybe next they will do just a manufactured size patch. Schmidt’s will say “48.” Luzinski’s “52.” Freddie Patek’s will say “32” or “Child’s Large.”

    • I agree. I was giving thought to posting about what exactly they did to make “replicate his vintage jersey.” It doesn’t look any different from the Historical Stitches they made for players from other teams. I know very little about how the stitching of players’ names into jersey was done, but shouldn’t there be some sort of variation between the various teams? Furthermore, doesn’t the introduction of putting the player’s name on the back of the jersey render putting inside the jersey a moot point? I’m sure there’s someone out there who can answer these questions. Regardless, it is a fairly stupid concept.
