If you know me, you know I positively adore Phillies throwback jerseys. Heck, I own three of them personally. My first was a powder blue Mike Schmidt ’76 throwback, followed by a ’76 Carlton home jersey. Got a Burrell rookie jersey for my 33rd birthday this year. (Pat broke into the league wearing 33.) So you know I cannot tell you how excited I am to stop in and drop some coin in Mitchell & Ness’ new flagship store at 1201 Chestnut. The pictures of their new spot are simply glorious! T‑minus Christmas and counting until I grab a sweet Robin Roberts home jersey or this amazing Philadelphia Quakers throwback.
