I always start my drinking off by sipping one or two solid IPAs; a good 6-7% abv to get the ball rollin'. My buddies and I have called it "teeing off" since we lived in the college dorms. I then proceed to drink alcoholic water all day/night long, more commonly referred to by its product name of Busch Light. 


In Topic: Do you have a second team to root for?

I guess I'll go against the grain and say yes. 

 

I'm from Huntersville but my dad is from Texas, and since I was little he tried to sway me towards the Cowboys, especially since the Panthers weren't around til I was 4. I root for them to win every one of their games (except against the Panthers) as a #2 team but I don't follow them in depth.

 

I also gravitated towards the Broncos when I was a kid because I loved Elway and Davis, and to a young kid having a few teams to root for doesn't seem so outlandish - just like that kid for make a wish foundation who is from Houston but loves Cam. 

 

Neither the Cowboys or Broncos are even in the same area code of the obsessive fandom I have for the Panthers, but I am certainly fans of those two teams.

it looks good but it is fake, the panther on the sleeve gives it away, but as long as the blue is the right shade i'd rock it proudly (esp for 4 bucks)

but to who said the stiched ones dont have a sewn on logos is wrong, the middle versions (not screen printed but not the elites) DO have a patch panther but they are not the same way as the bootlegs

the ones without the double stich, just the single stich numbers have a patch for the panther, but its a solid patch

 

You are right. But like you also said, when people refer to knock offs they are always in the Elite style. I've never seen a fake claim it was the Limited jersey (which IMO is the best bang for your buck). Also, the stitched on logos of the knock offs are all made of thread, while the patch on the Limited is more of a hard rubbery plastic material.

How did you identify this in the pictures as being fake?  To caveat, I don't buy jerseys or collect them but I am a stingy MF and really like it when someone finds a deal.  At the same time I hate it that someone can get duped in the process mind you for 3.99 it does matter and is a good find fake or not but this may not be the case all the time.

 

Please explain...

 

I'll go into some detail. 

 

First off, as a whole fake jerseys have that "look" to them. It's hard to describe until you have seen a lot, but it's a combination of shiny numbers, sloppy stitching, wrong colors, unsightly creases and wrinkles, the jock tag on the front being too high, and a crooked NFL shield on the neck. 

 

Specifically to the Panthers jersey (which I am most familiar with) the main giveaways are usually the shade of blue, the KEEP POUNDING font, and the Panther logo being stitched rather than screen printed. Here are a few links to eBay for blatantly fake jerseys (all from the fist page of results). As you can see, eBay is littered with fakes.

 

1) http://www.ebay.com/...=item35d86897c8

 

2) This one is harder to tell since the pictures are poor, but look how crooked the NFL shield is, and how high the jock tag is on the front right.  http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f3855e598

 

3) Look at the horrible logo (our old one, as well as weird colors) and the KEEP POUNDING font.  http://www.ebay.com/...=item35d858f377

 

4) http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f3855eec2

 

I have nothing against fakes, as some people don't want to spend a fortune on a jersey. In fact, I have one of these Chinese fakes - a white Luke jersey. I thought I would be fine with it, but once I began to realize just how different they were from the real thing, I broke down and got a legit Cam jersey last year.

 

 

It;s a real jersey, it;s just a factory second. One sleeve is 1/4 shorter than the other or something. Chinese companies buy them as damaged, finish them, and sell them cheaper. I got a Cam jersey off of Ebay for 25 bucks just like it- new Nike jersey with the old logo patch. And I have 325 reasons to be happy with it.

 

This is false. The Chinese jerseys are not seconds, rejects, or any of that. They are fraudulently built from scratch. They don't use the same material blend as the $300 Elites, and it's night and day when you compare and feel them in person.

$3.99? I just paid $325 for an authentic Jordan Gross. It arrived today. $3.99 is a better deal.

 

Your Jordan Gross jersey is also an authentic one.

 

While $4 is a solid find, this is a fake jersey - you can get it for $25-$30 on AliExpress. Not many people care, but to a jersey dork like myself I could tell this Luke one was fake instantly.
