The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread

Recommended Posts

Ever think of taking advantage of an "internet deal"?

Here is their "quality"

Most of these sites have pop-up "customer service" boxes where the sales rep admitted to me that the jerseys are counterfit... his words!

Low quality China jerseys.

Take a look at their hockey jerseys. They can't get a font type or size correct to save their lives.

Their North Star Ns are way to big, same with the Whaler logos.

Their Blackhawk 1s are in correct.

The materials used on letters number and patches don't seem to be the high quality material.

You definately get what you pay for.

I have a Darrelle Revis jersey I got off a site called AntyJerseys.com, and I'm pretty sure it's authentic. It has high quality material and I got it for less than $19 (the shipping cost a fortune, though).

Post pictures of it on here and watch it get picked apart.

Sure, by rabid uni freaks (no offense, I'm one too). Most people don't care, they just want something sub-$250 to wear to the game. Besides, most casual observers won't even notice the flaws.

Some of those are pretty bad, where even a casual fan would notice, like those Pats jerseys with regular block numbers.

The Pats fonts look right, to me. The sizing of the numbers seems way off, and the colors seem off on the white ones, but the fonts don't appear to be an issue.

There are some that are definitely more noticeable than others. Some, even after looking at a few times, I can't seem to tell much difference at all, some there are things that jump out at me, although small, and then there are the you've got to be :censored:ting me types.

I wasnt talking about the ones in that gallery, I was talking about the ones I see a lot of people wearing around.

Wow, I had no idea Rickey Henderson wore #42 for the A's

You had no ideas there were two Hendersons, either, eh? :D

Actually, my brother ordered a Chase Utley off of a Chinese site, and it was actually pretty well done. There were a few very minor issues (some stray threads etc.) but as far as accuracy, it looked fine.

Dude. It's like some jerseys have elephantiasis & the others are just teeny-tiny.

That being said...I'd buy one of those Bruins Winter Classic throwbacks on the condition that it was blank. Those numbers are atrocious, but doesn't seem like they made any glaring mistakes on that one.

Those numbers though...Man.

That Atlanta one kind of looks like a TATC jersey with that massive script.

This issue gets brought up on HFBoards a lot, too. The question is, as a fan of a team or as a graphic designer, why would you support something where the purchase price ends up going to neither? However you may feel about paying $100-300 for a jersey, if you support counterfeit goods, you are only raising the price, not lowering it. Much like people complaining about not being able to see NFL preseason games or complaining about how McDonalds is unfair for not having a dollar menu, there is no inalienable right to an authentic jersey. If you can't afford it, don't get it. But don't support an illegal trade.

Except for the brown parts of the real jersey being black on the fake ones. But who would notice that?
