Made in the USA...

Above are both colorways of the Starter jackets made for the 1984 USA baseball team. I was only four at the time so I dont remember the Olympics that year but I do know they were held at Dodger Stadium in LA and eight teams competed in the tournament. Japan would go on to win the Gold beating the US team 6-3 but the Mark McGwire USA Topps card would go on to be a big pull for collectors. To this day the card is still highly collectible and one of the most reconizable baseball rc's of all time. A game worn/autographed USA jacket sold a few years back at AUCTION for $550!!! Deadstock, lightweight and a great for warmer weather yet still gives you that oldschool satin Starter feel without all the puffines.
