In 1904, Frank Mitchell and Charles Ness set the future of authentic
in motion when they met up in Philadelphia to establish Mitchell &
Ness Sporting Goods. At first, they specialized in stringing tennis
racquets, constructing custom-made golf clubs and making uniforms for
local Philly baseball and football teams. In 1933, the Mitchell
& Ness label made their NFL debut when they started making uniforms
for the Philadelphia Eagles, a partnership that would continue for 30
years. Not long after, in 1938, Mitchell & Ness entered professional
baseball, producing uniforms for the Philadelphia Athletics, as well as
outfitting the Phillies a few years later. In 1985, Mitchell
& Ness received a request that helped them pivot in a new direction.
A customer inquired about making repairs to his game-worn 1960
Pittsburgh Pirates vest and his game-worn 1949 St. Louis Browns jersey.
This sparked an idea that would change everything. Craft
historically-accurate, vintage, authentic baseball jerseys and apparel.
Hence, Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. was born. Today,
Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. offers authentic vintage jerseys and
apparel collections for the MLB, NFL, NBA, NCAA and MLS.
