The Big Ol' Counterfeit Jersey Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys; I was hoping somebody could help me out with an early 90s NBA jersey...

Back in the early to mid 90;s, Starter NBA jerseys were a huge trend in Australia (and the satin jackets, to a lesser extent). Was Starter a legitimate manufacturer of the lower end NBA jerseys? I know that Champion were making the screen printed jerseys in the mid-90s. Here is an image of something I'm watching on ebay, does it look legit?

Cheers

I'll add one other thing; these were basically like the equivilant of Swingmans today - they were at a lower price point, and none of them had the players name on the back - jerseys with players names on the back were twice as expensive. I was so young during this period; I can't really remember much - but I believe these were available at retail stores. But from a few google searches, I'm having trouble finding much info about Starter and NBA jerseys. It's possible that a wave of fake Starter NBA jerseys hit Australia but I was too young and naive to be aware of this at the time.

Real or fake, that looks like crap and nothing like what the Hornets wore.

Starter didn't start making NBA unis until the late 90's - I think it was 1998. That Hornets jersey is a definate fake - it looks like it was made based on a vague description of an actual jersey...

I don't know I couldn't find a size anywhere.

Could be legit, I have a Sand-Knit home version of that jersey and the star's freakin' enormous, much bigger than it looked on the actual unis.
