I'm adding this here in an effort to get some board memebers' help in stopping 2 ebay sellers: johnrockafella  and  thesepatchesaremakingmethirsty

These sellers have been taking images of mine as well as other posters and making "new old stock" iron on patches. I feel like if enough people turn them in to ebay VeRO then we may get them to stop. Here are some of the items I recognized:

That Carolina Panthers one reminds me of another Panthers logo...

This one is interesting, more of a custom than a fake... the seller claims it was a team prototype, but the 2002 Nike Team Canada base says otherwise... still makes for a cool era mashup:

Even for a fake jersey, how did they let this pass?

If you showed me Chinese characters upside down I wouldn't know the difference either

I frequent thrift stores and I would say literally 95% of the Nike-era NFL jerseys I find are fake... the weird thing is how every jersey seems off in its own way - some have bad flywire, some have bad NFL logo chips, some are the completely wrong color... I guess the counterfeiters aren't as close to nailing it as I used to think.

 

To be fair, the new Nike uniforms look to be much better quality. The old legit replicas/authentics were very cheap looking; very shiny/dazzly, big and loose. Nike replicas looks significantly different; more structured, so i'm sure there was a learning curve for counterfeiters when they came into the nfl picture.  

So i don't think you were necessarily wrong, i think fakes used to look more like the legit replicas.

Some of the follow requests I get on Instagram that have pictures of NFL jerseys makes me wonder if they are fake. For example you can get a current jersey of your favorite team for as low as $29.99

The majority of Vegas Golden Knights jerseys on eBay are fake, but the one posted below looks pretty close to a proper replica. The screened-on tag and the numbers are what makes me wonder the most, though.

The numbers are incorrect too. I'd never buy one but from internet pictures it seems like the fakes are getting better.

I have always viewed it the other way around. I dont think I ever saw a passable Reebok-era fake because bootleggers never got the sheen of those jerseys quite right. I could tell a fake Bledsoe-era Bills jersey from a mile away, but the current set actually takes me a second when I see them at games because light seems to hit the materials more accurately.

I sell my screen printed jerseys for less. Thanks to you guys I knew the Jags, Titans were getting new jerseys so I sold my George, Bennett, Blackmon jerseys for $20-$30.

Legit, definitely

The red on the logo terminates incorrectly against the blue. It should taper in, not end abruptly. I’m calling fake.

The nameplate lettering is a dead giveaway. It also looks like the numbers may not have the proper glittery trim, but most importantly, they’re not perforated.
