This weekend I put a Nike Limited Aaron Rodgers jersey up on EBay. I assume most of you know what that is, but for those who don't, here: http://www.fansedge.com/Green_Bay_Packers/Nike_Aaron_Rodgers_Green_Bay_Packers_Limited_Jersey_-_Green/source/csefe12-pla-id864947-2?CAWELAID=330011900009216426&gclid=CPjt84bP2LwCFUhp7AodV2MApw Anyways, I listed the jersey with the title "Nike Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers Limited (Replithentic) Jersey - M." I also explained in the listing the different jersey grades so the purchaser was aware of what they were getting. No big deal right? To my surprise, I get an e-mail this morning stating that EBay has removed my listing and that I have violated their terms of service. I called Customer Service to find out what the problem was, and they explained to me that because I listed it as "Replithentic" I am being written up as a seller of counterfeit jerseys. I told them there are a number of jerseys on EBay that are 100% counterfeit, and I can assure you that a Jersey given to me as a Hanukkah gift from Dick's Sporting Goods is not counterfeit. They then asked me to explain the term "Replithentic" because to them that means a "not real jersey." I said you do realize that people are using "Authentic" and "Game Worn" on EBay listings of counterfeit jerseys, correct? The customer service representative seemed dumbfounded that someone would lie about an authentic jersey. He then said to me that the NFL line of "Limited" jerseys is considered authentic by EBay because it has sewn numbers. I had to explain to him that not every jersey with sewn numbers is authentic. I actually had to give him the link to the article I wrote for BaconSports (http://www.baconsports.com/comprehensive-guide-to-buying-jerseys/) and it finally made sense to him. So, now I have to go through an appeals process with EBay so they don't close my account. That being said, it's no surprise there are so many counterfeit jerseys up on that site. The people policing the site are attacking the good guys instead of the bad guys! Rather frustrating if you ask me.
