Hundreds of counterfeit Winter Classic sportswear items seized

Fake Winter Classic merchandise seized in Pittsburg. My favorite quote from the article reads: "the main dangers are that the jerseys would fall apart and that people thinking they spent money to support the Penguins and Steelers are "actually supporting the counterfeiters." I am interested to see if they go after the people who were going to sell this merchandise in the US.

YES! Shut these guys down so the only alternative is to give Reebok hundreds of dollars for a shirt that cost $9 to make!

VICTORY!

Well, have fun funding the Chinese mafia. I prefer option C, which involves not buying counterfeit goods, and only buying authentic NHL jerseys... on clearance or on eBay.

I, for one, welcome our oriental overlords, and wish them well on their conquests. Triads 4 Lyfe!

I love this. I teach in Pittsburgh and people were making fun of me for buying jerseys off NHL.com. I see kids in school with the fake powder blue. I told a co-worker don't buy one, wonder if his got seized? There's a small store that had only fakes. I was asking and he was telling me they're authentic, he gets them directly that's why the low price, etc. He got busted and they took all jerseys. Love it! I don't support RBK selling at a high cost(even though I buy), I support protecting their copyrights and people who sell to unsuspecting people who don't know better.

I'm looking forward to the discount Winter Classic deals at Kettler Capitals Iceplex and the innernets.

I think I might take one of your concepts, put the image on a t-shirt, sell the shirts and give you 0% of the profits. It's the same thing.

The people who created the logos and designs have already made their money. Knock-off jerseys are only around because "Authentic" jerseys are exorbitantly overpriced and in a lot of cases (like with the "Authentic" Reebok EDGE jerseys) more poorly made than the knock-offs...

I don't find them to be overpriced or poorly made.

As someone who has collected jerseys for 20 years I really get what you are saying about the cost and "quality" of today's licensed replicas. But isn't you logic basically saying its ok to steal from wealthy people/companies?

Do you own a Chinese knock-off, by chance?

I am ashamed to say that I own one. And the quality is :censored: There are loose threads EVERYWHERE, and I can't pull them, or it'll run like crazy. I'm now keeping the local seamstress off welfare.
