New Orleans Saints (new numbers?)

I don't know how reliable that pic is. While that jersey doesn't even have tv numbers, and looks like a low grade replica. That number even looks like it may be just photoshopped on there. Was that jersey like 39.99 or something?

The #2 in the (heavily photoshopped) photo from the NFL store lacks a serif at its base. That's the only diff I see.

It's way thicker too. Look at the differences in black space at the top of the 2 twos. Also, with the fake one, you couldn't add a serif because it would go right into the elbow (right term?) of the two.

The lettering and numbers are different. Looks like a freeware font (meaning:CHEAP) SF Collegiate for the letters and numbers.

The Saints use the omnipresent generic NFL block numbers, and a condensed version of Franklin Gothic Medium for the letters.

This just smells bad all around.

i thought it was a bad photoshop too

this is shown as an authentic on this page

on their website

You do have a point, but if you look at the numbers on the website as compared to the numbers above, it still looks like the #2 is inconsistent. The numbers on the website appear rounded whereas the #2 is clearly squared off.

Those odd numbers/letters look like the result of some shoddy MS Paint work.

Shock, shock, somebody in the Saints organization is half-assing it.

My guess: no change at all, except perhaps in web store personnel.
