The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread

Recommended Posts

Saw my first new Nike NFL jersey in a thrift store today. 'twas a Percy harvin Vikings jersey from last year. Quite obviously counterfeit. Also, stained and beat to hell. What do people do in their jerseys? It was only a year old!

Went to the Skins-Bears game today and daaamnn there were fake jerseys everywhere. Skins and Bears fans alike. The counterfeit to legit jersey scale is getting close to 50/50 I'd say. They are everywhere. Especially the new Nike design.

Anyone else notice it being this bad at other stadiums?

ya i think it has something to do with increasing the price of the cheapest jerseys from $60 reebok replicas to the $100 nike ones, i think alot of fans just want something close to the real thing if they are going to be paying that much

the internet is easy to order from and people don't want to pay triple digits for something as trivial as a sports jersey

Most people just don't fricken care. Same with designer purses and shoes. Had some lady proudly showing off her cheap Chinese Nike shows the other day. "They're comfy, you can see the symbol is kind if spray painted but it's ok." Ugggh.

Theoretical question: Is it okay to buy a counterfeit jersey if you plan on burning it?

Regardless of intended use, by purchasing a counterfeit rather than the through proper means, you are in effect taking money away from the people who 'deserve' it.

Of course, this may be the intention.

If you want to burn something and you can't afford to burn a real jersey, maybe you should just burn a t-shirt or a hat instead. ;)

I found it funny when that Danish artist drew that controversial Mohammed cartoon, that the people burning Danish flags in protest had actually ordered Swiss flags from the internet (similar design but not the same) and a Swiss supplier made a nice bit of money off of the whole thing.

Is it counterfeit or just a fashion jersey? I feel like most counterfeiters try harder than to have the stripes just stop halfway around the sleeve.

There were yellow fashion jerseys for the Packers, but they were Reebok. I think the jersey in question had a Nike swoosh on it, which would make it counterfeit.
