PostSubject: Uh Oh... are counterfeiters trying harder?   Sat Feb 26 2011, 22:44

I received a little surprise in the mail (I'll post links to pics A.S.A.P.)

After a salsa scare with my Rodgers Premier jersey, I decided to buy a counterfeit that I wouldn't mind getting dirty (Note: I do not recommend taking the risk with countefeits as 99.999% of the time, you'll get a terribad p.o.s.)... Well, I've dealt with many counterfeits before, but whoever made this is definitely upping the ante to try to disguise his counterfeits. Comparing it with an older counterfeit my brother owns, I've noticed that they've attempted to correct the jersey color to the correct green and yellows, they've changed the materials on the numbers to make them not as shiny, and the jocktag and embroidery seems to be of higher quality.

I definitely know that this is a counterfeit...however, if more counterfeiters follow suit, it may be tough to determine counterfeits with just pics on ebay... It's definitely a scary concept to consider...

I'll post pics or links to them as soon as I can understand my newer cell phone x__x

Comparison between old counterfeit and new one. Old one has Eagles green, new one is the right color

Counterfeit and Premier color comparisons

If any other pics are wanted, just ask. The lighting in my house is terrible, so If you wish to see a retake, I'll try to find a better lit area.

Interesting, can you get clearer pics of the NFL logos on the jock tag and collar badge please?

Camera battery died, so for now I'll post some cell phone pics. Hopefully the lighting outside will help.

BTW: I'm 100% sure it's counterfeit since it has the SB patch and the sleeves aren't printed.

You are right it is a fake, I just wanted to see if they improved the balls in the NFL logos, which they haven't. Thanks for the pics.

I found a seller that has near perfect tags on the fakes. This is going to get harder and harder!

If you do look closely at the tags though, there are some clear signs. Like on the Flacco one it says the team name it the Eagles. And the Ray Rice says Joe Rice. It's just a matter of time before it becomes damn near impossible to tell the difference in pictures.
