Mitchell & Ness was established in 1904 by Frank Mitchell and Charles Ness. They set the future of authentic in motion when they met up in Philadelphia to establish Mitchell & Ness Sporting Goods. At first, they specialised in stringing tennis racquets, constructing custom-made golf clubs and making uniforms for local Philly teams. In 1933, the Mitchell & Ness label made their NFL debut. They started making uniforms for the Philadelphia Eagles, a partnership that would continue for 30 years. Not long after, in 1938, the brand entered professional baseball, producing uniforms for the Philadelphia Athletics, as well as outfitting the Phillies a few years later. In 1985, the brand received a request that helped them pivot in a new direction. A customer inquired about making repairs to his game-worn 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates vest and his game-worn 1949 St. Louis Browns jersey. This sparked an idea that would change everything. Craft historically-accurate, vintage, authentic baseball jerseys and apparel. Hence, Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co. was born.
