Are they the "Authentic" or "Premier" jerseys? Premier I'm assuming, might have to buy a T-Sizzle...

Knowing nothing about this specific site take what I have to say with a grain of salt.

Most of the these sites/ebay sellers are selling copies of the authentic jerseys, not the actual authentic jersey. That being said, the numbers, nameplate, patches, etc... are all stitched on and you can't beat the price.

One big watchout for these companies is the color purple. It is pretty easy to get the black and white jerseys close but they just can't seem to match the purple and in the end the color ends up looking more blue then purple.

Here is a pretty good example: http://www.grabjerse...roducts_id=1485

My first thought was, "Who cares, it is pretty close and the price is right" but next time you are at a home game take a look around, it is pretty easy to spot the fakes. Nothing like sitting with 70K people all dressed alike to make the wrong color stand out.

Stick with the away or black jerseys if the color issue bothers you.

Hope this helps.

I noticed that, I seen some Flacco's last year that were more Blue than Purple

The McGahee looks good

And also if you want to get one for autographs, that can be profitable and you laid out 20 bucks..

I bought one from another of these type of companies and then wore it to a game. While we were there a friend snapped a picture of our group and when I got to see the shot it really jumped out that my jersey was the wrong color. Since then I can't help but pick out the fake jerseys when I am at a game.

Still though, heck of a price. :-)

Numbers look a little too big.

I own an authentic Ray Lewis, and an "Authentic" Jamal Lewis and Flacco. Believe me, once you own a real one the fakes are easy to spot.

For example: the fake jersey's
- numbering is usually bubbly, and less stiff than a real one. Easy to fake though if the seller takes his time. The stiffness if rarely duplicated, though.
- Real authentic jerseys are made in Korea. Again though, easy to fake the tag.
- The NFL equipment shield looks blurry. Both of my fakes have blurry shields. The stars are crystal clear on my real one.
- The stitching on the inside look sloppy, and there is usually some kind of cardboard on the lettering inside the jersey.
- The easiest way to spot a fake is the BR/ Maryland flag patch on the sleeve of the jersey. The gold in the Maryland flag should be a sparkly, sewn-in gold thread. I've never seen a fake that has had this, or has been close.

For $20 though it's tough to beat.

I do recommend spending the 200+ on a real one from Eastbay.com, or NFLshop.com if you have the extra money. They're worth it. IMO

Eastbay usually has online coupons year-round which will knock up to 30% off a jersey. NFLshop currently has a 25% off coupon which will lower the price to around $215. Enter NFLWIN25 when checking out.

BallTMore pretty much sums up everything to look out for when buying a jersey on eBay. Another thing to look for is the little "c" on names such as McGahee, sometimes it can be the wrong font or in the wrong place (top instead of the bottom). Anyways, like granger said, they are not actually "authentic" jerseys, but they are copies of authentic ones (in other words, in Korea someone might have stolen the blueprint on the jersey and taken it to another factory to sell). So if you look hard enough, there are plenty of jerseys on eBay which you could buy for around $40 that you would not be able to tell the difference between an actual authentic jersey. Granger is right, it is really easy to spot fakes at M&T Bank, so make sure the fonts/colors are correct.

Myself, I have a black Reed jersey from eBay which looks great, and I got my little brother a white Flacco jersey from eBay which looks like the real deal as well.

A friend of mine who isn't me bought 2 Flacco and 2 Reeds, a Polamalu, a Hines Ward, and an Obama '08 Steelers, and a Marshawn Lynch for 25 bucks each from nflshopcn.com.

At the time you had to buy at least 10 so the friend of mine who isn't me got in on it with a few co-workers. All but he Polamalu were flawless - You cannot tell them from a real authentic jersey. On the Polamalu, the rectangle nameplate extended onto the shoulders which looked a little odd, but still not odd enough to sweat it when the friend of mine who isn't me only paid $25 for em.

I bought my dad and little brother stitched black Ray Rice and Ray Lewis jerseys from lookjerseys.com for Christmas. They were only $20 each and look legit. The only catch is that shipping is $20, so you might as well buy more than one when ordering.

They look great! My brother gets compliments on his Ray Lewis jersey all the time! The Ray Rice one looks very good as well. I figure as long as you stick to black and white colors, as long as the font looks good in the picture, the jersey should be really good looking. For my next jersey I am thinking either Ngata, Oher, or Boldin. Can't go wrong with either of those, but an Oher jersey sounds really cool!
