Sorry for bumping this thread but I have a question about counterfeit new era hats. I bought a bunch of vintage never worn new era hats and they look authentic but just feel wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Any more details Harland?

Care to elaboarate?  Is the issue with the sizing, the material, anything else?

Flimsy bill that doesn’t hold if you bend it. The new era tags don’t seem era appropriate. The thing that is vexing is that the embroidery of the logos look good it’s just they don’t feel right. Can’t tell if it’s just because they are 25 years of or if they are fake.

A little unintentional humor I came across while window shopping on ebay: Frankenstein Angels jersey...I feel like this is somebody's concept brought to life poorly

Anyone else find it odd that they always counterfeit Authentics and not Replicas? I feel like Replicas would be cheaper to reproduce and much easier to replicate accurately. 

I think it’s all about selling-buying an “authentic” jersey...for $11

That’s not that bad though, it’s fake, but it wouldn’t be a bad look for them to take imo

Make it cream and it would be a cool fauxback/Sunday jersey

I wonder if the the sticker shock on replicas is small enough that people are more likely to just buy them at the mall or the stadium.  The sticker shock on authentics might send people looking for "bargains."

 

More likely, I suppose, is the counterfeiters are going to charge roughly the same either way, so they may as well market for the bigger draw.

Many of those counterfeit sites do offer replicas, but at the exact same price as the more expensive models, so nobody ever really buys them. I do assume its actually easier to sew and embroider everything than it is to heat press or sublinate prints, though, at least in terms of using the equipment/technology they already had.

You also have to remember the "WOW" factor of "I got an authentic (lol) jersey for $39! It even has a fight strap! These normally retail for $200+!"

Stumbled across something today that I think is interesting:

This is Phil Collins, goofing off during a Central Park photoshoot with his band Genesis, in I'm guessing 1976 - the other guy in that pic is ex-Yes drummer Bill Bruford, who was Genesis' touring drummer for just that year - while wearing a pretty-obviously fake New York Rangers jersey; the font's more basic than their traditional lettering, and it lacks the dropshadowing to boot. 

I think this is the oldest case of a fake jersey I've ever seen, and it's kinda surreal to see one being worn by someone who would go on to be so famous...
