Most of the jersies are from guys that didn't make the team but you will recognize some names.


lol at Shaun Gilbert's jersey being $800 when most of them are $300.

I've found some pretty good deals on legit authentic jerseys off ebay... got an authentic (legit) blue Dan Morgan jersey for $50.00 and an authentic (legit) white Muhammed jersey for $30.00.

Speaking of eBay here is their wonderful Reebok NFL jersey authentication article that will really help you spot most of the fakes. It's short but if you buy jerseys other than stores and even some stores this is a must read:

I love this article and freshen up on it when I buy jerseys off of craigslist/ebay. I would assume you could use these general tips really on any jersey.

OMG an Eric Swann jersey would be awesome. I remember being so freaking excited when we got him.

Doesn't it describe the value? There are three kinds, screen, on-field, authentic.

The first is completely screen pressed and goes for pretty cheap 40 to 50 bucks
The on-field (?) has stitched numbers and letters and replica made to look like the ones on field. 80-100 bucks
Authentic jerseys are the most expensive on average a couple hundred, this is he top tier quality of stitching and I think it is an exact match to the jerseys actually worn by the player, everything is stitched and patched.

Could be wrong...

I think the middle one is the one least counter fitted and it really only pertains to which one, Iforrget but it should be in the link I posted earlier.

I think you are right when sellers call it authentic they are referring to the fact that everything is stitched on it, like a true authentic jersey.

I am not sure what types there were, I thought there was screen, EQT (some parts sewn with other parts screened), and then authentic which is true to what the player would wear on the field. I could be wrong though

Spotting a fake Panthers authentic jersey?

How can it be fake AND authentic?


When I say authentic, yes it is a lttle misleading by the wording they chose to describe it. Jerseys basically come in three different tiers:

Replica jerseys are screened all the way around. The name is usually smaller than normal too, and the number is basically just painted on the jersey. This is the cheapest one.

Premier or 'Tackle Twill' jerseys are the next level up, and have a sewn on name and numbers, but from my experience are still only one layer and have a screen-printed logo on the sleeves.

Authentic jerseys are the most expensive (usually $250-$300) and to my knowledge are basically what the players themselves wear on the field. I've only ever bought the second tier twill jerseys (usually $125-$150), but from what the good fellas on hear are saying they have the elastic cuff on the sleeve, and are a bit heavier than the others. The stripes on the sleeve are sewn, but the Panthers logo is still screen printed, albeit at a higher quality.

So when I ask about spotting a fake authentic jersey, I'm asking about spotting a fake top-tier Panthers jersey. It's confusing because my second tier twill jerseys are, in a sense, authentic because I purchased them at the online team store. Hope this makes at least a little sense.

Frank Garcia was my oline and wrestling coach in high school. Wonder how he would react to me showing up in an old jersey of his :lol:
