Hi all,

My son's girlfriend's sister gave him this jersey for Christmas. She won it in a raffle and it looks genuine to me but I'm not expert although I know more than most thanks to this forum.

Can someone tell from the pictures if it is genuine and what he has?

Thanks.

Joe

I would want to see an angled photo of the jock tag. The nfl, nike and nfl players logos should have a rubber texture to them. Other than that the neck tag and nfl badge on the neck look good. Usually the stitching on the neck badge is terrible on the fakes and the reflective material underneath the "on field" on the neck tag doesnt have the spotted look to it. If it were me I'd say its a real elite. But thats my two cents.

Teams with single layer numbers like the steelers have always been a pain to authenticate. The thing that worries me with that one is the jock tag. You can see on the left hand side where the stitching goes offline and crosses the black line. The black line don't seem to be raised high enough and you can see the stitching through the NFL logo, which is not the case on a genuine one.

Compare the jock tag with this


I'll stick my neck out and call it as a fake, based on the jock tag.

Oh by the way I deliberately stretched the picture in photoshop to make it harder for the fakers to gain the correct dimensions for the jock tag.

The Steelers us the flywire neck, this jersey is lacking it so I'll say it's fake as well.

Thanks, Guys. The next time my son is home I'll take a better picture of the jock tag.

The NFLShop.com website says "Pittsburgh Steelers Elite jerseys do not contain Flywire technology."

Steelers wanted all the nike elite upgrades other than the flywire. That being said, if you find a steelers elite jersey with flywire then it is fake.

I actually thought they did too until giorgian up there said they didnt. I just happened to not notice. Then i looked it up and sure enough they dont. Still curious if this one is real though....
