A partial order sent but I was chanrged for the full order. The portion that did arrive, came 5 weeks after order was placed.
Contacted Maurice via phone after 6 weeks and was disconnected while on hold.
When I attempted to call back the number was forwarded to another and went straight to voice mail. Left message. Contacted a second time with identical results the following week. Conted via phone a third time (on a Friday) and was told the item would ship in 2 days (Monday). Waited 2 weeks and nothing arrived. Started contacting via e-mail so I had a log. Sent e-mail requesting refund and was asked me for information he already knew. At this point he was stalling. He indicated a refund would be issued. No refund. Sent e-mail requesting refund. Was told the item shipped today. Asked for tracking number and advised I wanted a refund. I would send back the items if they ever arrived. No tracking number. No response.

|Recently at a D.C. sports memorabilia show, there were many of the old time baseball & football players in attendance. Fans were lining up to get autographs. Anywhere from jerseys, to balls, to sports cards. However, there was a company that had a vendors booth setup that was selling numbers. Numbers? Yes, they were selling athletic numbers that are made to be sewn onto a sports jerseys. Why would anyone do that you ask? Well, its simple. They were charge $150 to have one of the old players sign their jersey. That's pretty steep sometimes, so I thought, why not have them just sign an authentic team number that the player wore for only $10, and I can have it applied to my baseball jersey later on. What a great idea. The vendor was Eastern Lettering. www.easternlettering.net. They were selling these numbers so quickly, the table had to shut down midday to get more supplies from their shop. The line was out the door because the sew on numbers themselves were only $6.00 each. Then again, we took the numbers to get autographed for only $10 each. I mean, the table had everything from iron on letters to custom patches, to sew on nameplates, etc. Anything you could think of, they had. |
Now my only dilema was, how am I going to get these authentic sports numbers sewn onto my authentic MLB jersey? All I had to do was look up and there was the gentlemen telling me about their custom stitching service. They would take my personal blank jersey, sewn on my autographed number, then sew on the corresponding players digits and sports lettering patch onto the back. I mean, everything was right here for me to customize an entire jersey. This was 2 weeks ago. Well just the other day, I opened up my mailbox & there it was. My completely customized Willie Mays jersey. It was better than I thought. The lettering on the back was arched correctly, the jersey numbers on the front & back were spaced evenly. The stitching work was beyond my expectations. I also have another jersey at home that I will be sending to them. It has iron on letters and numbers as well as iron on patches on the sleeves. I am attempting to change the name & number on them, so they are going to custom sew the new, authentic numbers & letters right over top of the iron on numbers & letters and stitch a brand new custom nameplate over top of the old one. Now this, I wanna see. Stay tuned for the outcome.
