Name on Back ?


I've seen these White Sox jerseys available on eBay for a couple of years. At first glance, it looks very nice and something I have considered buying. Not so fast....

I have always resisted because, despite what these sellers may want you to believe, this is not an authentic Chicago White Sox jersey.

The Sox did not have names on the back of their uniforms during this era on either their home or away jerseys.

I checked with authentic throwback jersey maker Michell & Ness and saw they no longer carry the previously available authentic DA version, but it appears they have recently released a 1972 Bill Melton Sox jersey.

No Name on Back.
