PostSubject: Sam Adams 2003 Game Worn Jersey   Wed Feb 05 2014, 07:31

Ok, so the wife wanted to get me a jersey for Christmas and decided to go with a guy that her brother knows...you all know where this is going. The jersey she picked up looked nice, ended up being fake and for being a size 56 fit more like a Large. So...I have been searching for an Authentic Reebok jersey on Ebay. This is what I ended up buying. I was pretty excited especially since it will fit, lol but started having buyers remorse. What would be your expert opinions?

That is a BIG jersey. Not sure if it's game worn, but def. a legit jersey. You should have it tailored, take about 8 inched off the bottom Smile


Hey, what part of Lockport? My dad lives there, off Ernest Road - Northview Drive Smile

The only thing I was worried about was if it was legit or not. I will have to see how big it is, length wise, I am 6'8" 400lbs...lol.

I live over on Upper Mountain near Campbell, small world.

Sweet jersey, I wouldn't have buyers remorse. Definitely team issued, can't say it's game worn.

As Billsfan said, it's definitely a legit team issued jersey, so you can't go wrong in that regard.

I don't think it's something you'll be wearing though. Even if you were to tailor the bottom, bear in mind that the guys on the field wear it tight so there's less jersey for the opposition to grab - those jerseys aren't cut to be worn by you or I. They're also built for pads, so you'll find the shoulders are big, the sleeves are tight, and the body is tight.

My advice - stick the Adams jersey on the wall (or hang it for safe keeping) and find yourself another legit retail jersey to wear. I have a lot of game issued / worn jerseys. They're all hung in my closet, but I get enjoyment from flicking through them every now and again. Careful though - it gets addictive.

If you're after a Bills jersey in a 56, here's a Spiller for $50 + shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251419826476

I know the seller is on another collecting forum, and his jerseys are legit. It's the authentic range that retailed for $250. The price is fine as Reebok offloaded a ton of these when Spiller changed his jersey number from #21 to #28.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, so the body is tight and there is no way I can wear this...not what I was hoping for. Now I am still on the hunt for a Jersey that fits and this will go up for sale. ugghhh

Yeah, definitely a good price but not one that I would want, maybe Jackson or Dareus. Do you think I will be able to get my money out of the Adams jersey?

Hard to say. You may get lucky, but my guess would be you would sit for it for a while. Sadly, in my experience, the Bills are not a hugely sought after team in terms of game issued jerseys, unless you have any of the HOF caliber players or current style of jersey. The navy uni was not widely popular, and linesman cut aren't either.

Your quickest out would be to see if the seller accepts returns and go down that route.

It is a damn sweet Jersey. The guy that sold it works security for theBills. He said they put them up for sale at the time. He has an Adams away Jersey that has a ton of wear. There is another sale in April, when they are going to sell the rest of the reebok jerseys and he told me to call if I want to go. Score. He has about 150 in his collection, crazy.

Keep in with this guy then buddy. He could be a goldmine.
