My New Nike Elite Cam Jersey Finally Arrived! (**pics**)

Recommended Posts

And of course I'm TDY to Tampa... When I get home tomorrow I will take a bunch of pics and write up a review for everybody. I'll be home by 5, and I'll have pics up by at least 7 tomorrow evening. My wife said that it's very very nice, and that the "Keep Pounding" inside the collar is stitched in. I'm super excited and can't wait to get home!

I'll edit this post and put up the pics right here. Until tomorrow gents...

EDIT: After much photo taking and photo editing here are the photos as promised. I wish I could have gotten them up sooner, but life got in the way.

My review is as follows: The Nike Jerseys are AWESOME!!! Reebok's were HORRIBLE!!!

The fabric that's used is literally night and day. The Nike ones actually feel expensive and are worth the $$$. I cant believe that I bought an Authentic Reebok one quite honestly. Talk about "cheap and affordable" They were cheap alright just not very affordable. If you bought or have an old Authentic you will me much happier purchasing the New Nike Elite Jersey! The collar is amazing, stitched "Keep Pounding" under the collar is a brand new and shiney NFL Shield...as opposed to the old shitty patch that they had on the Reeboks.

In the pictures I provided I had a Cam Nike Elite jersey (size 48) and a DeAngelo Authentic Reebok Jersey (also size 48) To me it seems like the Reebok one was a bit smaller, but you can judge for yourself. Cropping these photos really really sucked btw!

The feel: It just feels amazing. didn't have an undershirt on with either jersey and quite honeslty dont think I'll need one with my new Cam one. Can't even feel the seems, unlike the Reebok ones.

Overall it's just a WAAAAAAAAY better product. At first I was a lil scared having spent that much $$$ on a jersey, but it's definitely worth it and made very very well. The fabrics are just amazing. It does stretch as well. Seems like it'd be impossible to rip honestly although I won't try it.

I hope you enjoy the pics and if you guys have any more questions that I may have not covered let me know. Pizza's here, gotta go.

got my game white cam jersey a week ago. has keep pounding on it as well. not as nice, but definately cool! they are more snug than the reeboks, which just kind of draped down you when you wore it. i try doing the superman in the mirror with the jersey on, but i can't take myself seriously.

I want an elite black Steve Smith jersey. Any idea when they'll be available? Cam was the only one they had last time I checked.

I wanted one of those jerseys/t-shirts things they have now, but the panthers official team store wanted to be close for renovations when I visited Charlotte last weekend. Then I visited every damn sports shop a brotha can think of, only to settle for one of those "Panthers Just Do It" shirts.

I don't believe in ordering online.

5:49 pm- TCF runs around his neighborhood, stiff-arming previous kid, because "that's what Cam would do"

6:24 pm- TCF's wife has made a lovely meal, but TCF refuses to come back inside. He's having too much fun outside 'playing Cam'.

6:43 pm- Realizing he made a blood-pact with the Huddle to have pictures posted by 7, TCF sprints home, making sure to strike a superman pose to any living creature in his path

Lol. Nicely done.

TCF, you been here a long time, you know the drill. Even though your OP clearly states that you will get the photos tomorrow because you're not even home right now, I have to do this anyway because after all, you did create the post and could have waited.

Nice, got a call from Steve @ the team store today saying they just got some of the pre-ordered elite jerseys in but nothing in the size 56 I ordered... says it will probably be towards the end of June before they have them :(

I guess that's what I get for being a fat ass, LOL

Will be very interested to read your review, I'm kinda worried about having ordered a 56 and not a 58 since the Nike stuff tends to run smaller, so I'll be particularly interested to hear how much more snug it fits then a Reebok jersey of the same size you've had in the past.

Worry not my friend... I will post pics of my Authentic signed DeAngelo jersey right next to the new Cam one. I will also take pics in both so that u guys can see how much "smaller" they really are.

Also, unless your order has shipped... The team store is very nice about changing the size for you. I have had excellent customer service experiences with the team store. For example: I originally ordered a smaller size, but then panicked at the last minute. All I did was call and the lady I spoke with was super courteous and very helpful. In fact she was apologizing for my order not having shipped on time (due to Nike being ill-prepared)

I'm drunk and poolside right now. If you're ever in Tampa I highly recommend the Bay Harbor Hotel (Best Western) right on the water with a pool and great view.

Thanks brother, I may swap it out for a 58 yet... I don't mind the Nike 56 fitting more snug then the Reebok 56 did, but I don't want it too snug.

The only thing I have to go off right now is a size 56 Nike "Collins" jersey I bought just before the '97 season... it fits smaller then I would like right now, but I'm not sure that's a good gauge of how these new jerseys will fit.

Agree on the folks at the team store, Steve (who runs the online stuff now) is the man!
