Rekindle your favorite moments as an Orioles fan with this Cal Ripken Jr. #8 Cooperstown replica jersey. Made of 100-percent polyester double-knit, the jersey looks just like a Ripken-era orange jersey, with the authentic printed twill team name across the chest and Ripken's name and number displayed on the back. In addition, the jersey includes a team-specific Cooperstown woven locker tag along the bottom. As with every Majestic garment, the jersey carries itself with the same qualities--commitment, tenacity, and persistence--as every Major Leaguer who's ever stolen home, thrown a 100 mph fastball, or batted in the winning run. Easy to care for, the jersey is officially licensed by Major League Baseball.
The Ripken jersey hails from Majestic's Cooperstown Collection, a celebration of the timeless heritage and tradition of America's pastime and its greatest players. The collection includes a unique blend of historical icons, emblems, and colors with both classical and modern designs and fabric innovation. Baseball's golden age is eternal in Majestic.
About Majestic Athletic
The Majestic Athletic story began in the 1950s, when Mary Capobianco endeavored to open her own sewing mill. After working in the booming garment industry of Bangor, Pennsylvania, she realized she could work just as hard for herself and get much more in return. She started with women's clothing, blouses mostly. The company was called Maria Rose Fashions, and served well-dressed women from coast to coast. It was a far cry from athletic apparel, but it demanded the same attention to detail.
After learning the garment business first-hand, her son Faust Capobianco III followed in her footsteps. In 1976, he founded the Majestic Athletic you know today. Well, almost. The spirit was there, but the company hadn't made it to the big leagues yet. That happened in 1982, when Majestic introduced its first Major League Baseball batting practice jersey. This relationship grew in 1984 when the company signed its first MLB National Licensing Agreement, which brought fans the high-quality apparel they needed to truly show their team's colors.
From the beginning, Majestic Athletic's philosophy has been simple: create the highest-quality athletic wear with a commitment to heritage, craftsmanship, and authenticity. And even though the company has hit the big leagues, the employee still takes time to add the hand-stitched details that got them where they are. But now they do it for every Major League Baseball club, the National Basketball Association, the National Pro Fastpitch Softball association, and most major colleges and universities.
Proudly wear the name of one of MLB's great players, Cal Ripkin Jr., on the back of Majestic's Cooperstown 1965-66 Orioles Replica Jersey. He did not play on the '65 team, but he will always be a part of Oriole history.
