It came to $60 with shipping, but it actually only cost me personally $4 because of previous transactions with other people earlier the day I ordered it.

i've got a black eagles kearse jersey, and a navy blue titans vince young that are both "shady" ebay purchases... but i've got zero complaints with them.

Well, compared to the jerseys worn in the Super Bowl XL Championship DVD, the only noticable differences between this and the ones in the video are the cut of the sleeves (which are done by the NFL trainers themselves) and the fact that the letters are a little too close together. Through the letters on this jersey are not a yellow layer on top of a black layer, it's actually a yellow layer with thick black stitching all around the edge of it.

Here is the oriignal auction. If you look at the back of the jersey, the shoulder panel is pretty messed up and the name font is thicker.

It's hard to tell, but what you pointed out about the name being yellow with just a thick black layer of stitching, it looks like the numbers themselves are stitched on like that too, so I would say that it is a fake. I can't say I'm positive that it's like that, but that's how it looks to me.

Still worth $60. I have a Maurice Clarrett Ohio State jersey (I know, I know...) and it's like that and nobody seems to bring it up or care.

The nameplate is definately not right. It's not actually "chain-stitching", just a thick black outline stitching.

The numbers are sewn on with a normal zig-zag stiching, like the crests on my authentic NHL jerseys. The ones in the back appear to be about 2 inches taller than the ones on the back.

The SBXL patch and Steelers logo patch are actually embroidered INTO the jersey itself, the same way they do it in most ballcaps. If you hold it up to a light, inside or out, you can see the pattern of the jersey material inside the patches themselves. Seems almost like a watermark.
