PostSubject: I bought an authentic jersey from ebay   Tue Sep 20 2011, 01:20

The "jersey" it self looks 100% authentic with all tags still on it, but the nameplate has been changed, it used to be a bigger name. I contacted the seller and she stated that reebok will sometimes change the nameplate. Is this true? There is stiching in the top middle of the chest were maybe a different single number might have been. The jersey is a James Harrison #92, but there hasnt been a player with longer name than Harrison that has wore the number 92. The jersey is real but it didnt come with that name on it. Just want to know if reebok did it or if someone else did. The nameplate looks authentic as well. Thank you in advance.

I did some research and the jocktag is a 2002-2004 model, and Harrison came back to the steelers 2004. Would reebok really change the nameplate?

Welcome,

It's unlikely that Reebok would change a nameplate and numbers on an existing jersey. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a customised jersey that someone has done after market. Can you tell me if the letters on the nameplate have been sewn through onto the inside of the jersey or not? And can you post pictures?

This picture is the one where you can see the old stitching near the name plate.

Ok, well the good news is it's definitely a genuine jersey. It looks to have been stripped and then customised. It's been done well.

I was going to say what Billsfan said, it's 100% authentic. And if it has been stripped and re-done it looks good.

So the name is redone for sure, but not by reebok, are the numbers redone as well? Should I keep it or return it and keep hunting(I cant afford a 280 dollar jersey) Can anyone give me an idea of what they would have paid for it, I dont know if prices are aloud on this frorum.

Thanks Everybody!!

I see no problem with customized jerseys, so long as it's done correctly. As far as I can tell your jersey is correct.

Well at the end of the day it's all down to if your happy with the Jersey or not.


For me you have an authentic jersey that has been well customised and looks good so i'd say it's a keeper, just my opinion though Smile

I'd be happy with it, as for the price, well price is subjective, it's worth what you can get for it. 2nd hand market you could expect to see around $150 for it.

Well she is letting me trade it for a Hines Ward that hasn't been customized.

THanks for all the help
