Michael Redd Hands Fake Jersey to a Fan?

Michael Redd presents his jersey to a fan before the start of Monday’s game.

In a pregame ceremony, Michael Redd gave an autographed jersey to a fan. It's Redd's last game as a Bucks player, although not sure the ceremony was really that warranted. Regardless, look at the jersey he's handing out, and look at the NBA Store authentic jersey they're selling. Looks like Redd's jersey he's handing out has a thicker number font. Is this a change due to the new style of Adidas jerseys they're wearing, or did someone screw up the jersey that Redd is carrying?

The only real authentics are the ones the players actually wear. Anything you buy at the NBA Store may try to look authentic, but they aren't ever quite exact even if they do get pretty close in some cases.

It's basically...

1. Game worn

2. Authentic

3. Replica

in terms of jerseys.

I hate mentioning his name here, but Jersey Joe was selling NBA "game-cut" jerseys a while back. They were allegedly the same ones that would be issued to players, with the longer tails and all that. They ran $500.

To my eye, the numbers look good:

(From the official 2010-2011 Uniform Style Guide.)

Hmm...so maybe the thinner numbers they put on the NBAstore jerseys are not quite as "authentic" as I thought.

What thinner numbers? Do you have a pic?

Look at the jersey I posted below the photo of Michael. Unless I'm seeing things, the jersey appears to have thinner numbers.

All the NBA Store graphics have Photoshopped letters and numbers. I wouldn't use that as any kind of resource.
