The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm adding this here in an effort to get some board memebers' help in stopping 2 ebay sellers: johnrockafella  and  thesepatchesaremakingmethirsty

These sellers have been taking images of mine as well as other posters and making "new old stock" iron on patches. I feel like if enough people turn them in to ebay VeRO then we may get them to stop. Here are some of the items I recognized:

Things like this can't be taken lightly!

I frequent thrift stores and I would say literally 95% of the Nike-era NFL jerseys I find are fake... the weird thing is how every jersey seems off in its own way - some have bad flywire, some have bad NFL logo chips, some are the completely wrong color... I guess the counterfeiters aren't as close to nailing it as I used to think.

 

To be fair, the new Nike uniforms look to be much better quality. The old legit replicas/authentics were very cheap looking; very shiny/dazzly, big and loose. Nike replicas looks significantly different; more structured, so i'm sure there was a learning curve for counterfeiters when they came into the nfl picture.  

So i don't think you were necessarily wrong, i think fakes used to look more like the legit replicas.

Some of the follow requests I get on Instagram that have pictures of NFL jerseys makes me wonder if they are fake. For example you can get a current jersey of your favorite team for as low as $29.99

The majority of Vegas Golden Knights jerseys on eBay are fake, but the one posted below looks pretty close to a proper replica. The screened-on tag and the numbers are what makes me wonder the most, though.

I have always viewed it the other way around. I dont think I ever saw a passable Reebok-era fake because bootleggers never got the sheen of those jerseys quite right. I could tell a fake Bledsoe-era Bills jersey from a mile away, but the current set actually takes me a second when I see them at games because light seems to hit the materials more accurately.

I sell my screen printed jerseys for less. Thanks to you guys I knew the Jags, Titans were getting new jerseys so I sold my George, Bennett, Blackmon jerseys for $20-$30.

The nameplate lettering is a dead giveaway. It also looks like the numbers may not have the proper glittery trim, but most importantly, they’re not perforated.
