Great style and true to size.
The color combination is different but a great shirt & a great way to honor the Philadelphia Stars.
This shirt is a great homage to the players of the Philadelphia Stars and the Negro Leagues, who were unjustly denied the ability to play in MLB, but shined nonetheless. It's a great shirt, and people comment on it all the time.
