When the A’s wore their Oakland Oaks throwbacks on my birthday, I realized that I had to get it. I unfortunately live in LA and the opportunity to buy the limited supply at the Coliseum didn’t happen for me.
But I found out that Ebbets Field Flannels makes them but for at a crazy $200 per jersey. I followed them on Twitter hoping that maybe one day they would have a sale. They did.
They said earlier in the week they would reveal a half-off sale on Facebook before sending out an email to the newsletter subscribers. Since I am on the Facebook, this was easy for me.
The problem was that they didn’t say when the sale would begin. They just told people to watch out. But I wasn’t going to hang onto the computer all day. I just had to hope I was online when the sale went live.
