By contrast you have Ebbets Field Flannels. They don’t deal with the here-and-now. Rather, they specialize in “once upon a time.” I look forward to receiving their mailings. It’s almost like a museum catalog, with its colorful offerings of an historical nature. (I’ll even forgive that they also sell some non-baseball items.)

So many T-shirts (and caps and sweaters and jackets), so little time.

I spoke recently with EFF co-founder Jerry Cohen about the history and expansion of this unique company.
