So I'm about to buy my first O's Jersey in about ten years. I figured it would be a piece of cake to go online and order a replica jersey of my man, Adam Jones. I was wrong.
First of all, I'd hoped to get a gray road jersey, but they don't seem to come with customization from the O's website. WTF? And even with the home jersey, if I order it, it will ship "in 7-10 business days", which seems a little long.... I mean, they must have a ton of Adam Jones jerseys lying around in all sizes.
Anyway, here are my questions:
1) Has anyone seen a version of the road "Baltimore" jersey with player name & number on the back?;
2) Are there stores around Camden Yards or the harbor that carry the replica jerseys pre-sewn, in stock, with players' names on them? And if so, can you tell me their names/locations, as I'd like to call arpound and see if I can get someone to ship me one off the rack.
The urgency is because I'm going to two of the Angels games the first week of July and I want to be sporting the new threads by then.
Bonus poll: I have only seen these jerseys in pictures; you who are in Smalltimore have probably actually seen them up close. If you think I should get a different jersey, I'd be curious which one. I can spend up to about a c-note, and whatever it is, I want it to be clear when I'm in an enemy stadium that I'm an Oriole fan.
