Eagles jersey question

I actually own one with a white collar. The white collar was on the jerseys made by Starter. When Starter went out and Puma started making the Eagles' jerseys (McNabb's rookie year), they switched the collar to black.

Is yours authentic?

I thought that in 97 (the first year of the bird replacing the white sleeves) that they had white collars on the white jersey, and green ones on the green.

Footall Uni's Past and Present disagrees with me, though.

Here's a link

Also, collar colors on replicas can vay a lot. Some of the white Reebok replicas that they sell in some stores (Modells and Sports Authority among others) have white collars. It seems to be the ones that they get in once the team makes the NFC title game and they get the rush shipments in. I've noticed this the last several years.

Yeah, the rush order ones are the ones with the incorrect collar colors. (Try saying that fast.) I was talking to a guy at Modells before the season started and he said that they had the jerseys on sale to unload the incorrect ones. I guess when the big Eagles rush happens Reebok will take any jersey it can get and print it up.

I heard Modells sells alot of cheap jerseys for like $40. They dont have the black collars or stripes on the sleeves. Heres a pic (ignore the SB logo)

It's authentic, although it is a McNabb (who never wore that style) - the Eagles' online store was clearing them out to make room for the new ones.

I did a little searching, and found this picture.

It is supposed to be a 1998 Topps Troy Vincent card. A 1998 card would have a picture from the 1997 season on it. I don't know anything about recent football cards, so I'm taking the site's word for it that this is a 1998.

Anyway, the point is that you can see the NFL shield on his jersey, and it appears to be on a white collar. So, I'd say 1997 = white collars. (maybe)

ESPN NFL 2K5 on my XBOX has this jersey too and they did a pretty good job of showing all the historic uniforms... I think they show it as 96 season but I may be wrong. I am at work and can confirm later.

1996 white jersey's have two stripes (green / black) with white in the middle on the sleeves. No eagle head.

One of the more rediculous uniform updates in recent memory if you ask me. At least they realized it after only one season.

You are correct, BBTV... the game displays the ones I referred to exactly as you describe.

Both versions are hideous IMO...

of course if they win the super bowl, I don't care what they wear.
