Great job by @majesticonfield

Big thanks to @majesticonfield who surprised me with this tweet:

We know you need to look good for your event tomorrow @metspolice . Let us help you dress in style;

This beauty is on its way for Saturday Delivery.



Thanks to Majestic for following up today. Sorry I had to throw a tantrum but its really hard to argue fonts with folks on the phone. As @mediagoon knows I have been dealing with this as a quiet civilian for about a month and had shipped the other one back twice.

Original post was….

an incorrect mets jerseySince the jerseys were announced I have been trying to buy a replica 2013 blue Mets jersey customized to METS POLICE 13. Simple, right?

Well I have sent it back TWICE already with pictures and links and letters and emails. Last night I got home and had mail. I was excited. I opened the package. There strikes for @officialmlbshop and @majesticonfield.

On the left is what I keep getting – note the lettering is wrong, the number font is wrong. I have included the blue Dickey on the right as an example of what a Mets jersey should look like. See the difference?



I don’t know what else to do at this point but ramp up the complaining. I can’t keep playing mail-the-jersey every week.

Oh and now I won’t have a blue 13 to wear to tomorrow’s Mets Police Awards.

Can someone PLEASE HELP.

See the thing is – when you’re the Mets Police and you made your bones about complaining about uniforms you can’t walk around in a half-ass jersey. It’s not a proper replica. It’s t-shirt font on a replica jersey.

Mr. Majestic and Mr. MLBShop you’re welcome to hunt around this site. You will find that I have bought LOTS of jerseys. I just want what I ordered. Thanks. And since I see you aren’t offering blue custom replicas on the site anymore then I’m happy to just take the money back. I suspect that my issue and the no-more-replicas are somehow related.

Hopefully this can be a one and done post and not a daily feature….

    at this point, i’d probably ask them to mail you back a blank replica, then mail the replica to stitches and have them do the customization. it’ll be better quality than the stitched/screen that the replicas are now and you know it’ll be right.

    They did front numbers for a replica? It’s good to be the king…

  3. The replicas have numbers on the front now?

    So cool that they came through in the clutch for you. I buy a lot of jerseys / t-shirts too so I’m happy to support businesses like that.
