Adidas Ohio State jersey question


Badge Man

Recommended Posts

I bought a #13 Ohio State football Adidas red jersey on eBay and was wondering if Ohio State even had Adidas or if this is real. I don't have a picture because this was over 90 days ago and eBay takes pictures down after 90 days.

Currently they do not have adidas jerseys and I think they're still under contract with Nike for a while.

Yeah, I was thinking that because the jersey isn't bad quality. I just thought it was odd it wasn't Nike.

If by "is this real" you mean "does this tangible object exist in the universe", then the answer is a very probable YES, though I cannot confirm it on my own. If by "is this real" you mean "is this an authentic Ohio State jersey", then the answer is NO. The most prominent #13 was Mo Clarett, and they were a Nike school then, as they are now.

Other companies may try and make gear for a school that they aren't partnered with, but it's obviously not authentic.

Apparently Adidas has had a college football license for a few years now, because I asked the same thing here last year when I saw Adidas U of Minnesota replica jerseys. That makes the Adidas OSU replicas both "real" and "legitimate" replica jerseys. Since no replica jersey is authentic in the game-worn sense, the primary question is how close to authentic do they look.

Anyway, here's a link to a place selling both Nike and Adidas OSU jerseys: http://www.footballfanatics.com/COLLEGE_Oh...uckeyes_Jerseys
