PostSubject: Jersey purchased from ESPNAmericaShop.com   Thu Oct 08 2009, 14:04

Hi all,

First visit and pointed to this site from the NFLUK site. Great to see everything on here.

I've just purchased a replica Broncos Away Dumervil shirt from ESPNAmericashop.com. The shirt looks fine and has come with all the tags, etc that I would expect. One minor nagging concern is that the shirt I have received says it is 85% Polyester and 15% Nylon. Looking on the official sites, replicas seem to be 100% polyester this year. Have a got any cause for concern - is it one of last years shirts that had a different composition or have I been sold a fake?

Any help gratefully received.

Hi Welcome to the threads.

I wouldn't have thought you have anything to worry about. There are always jersey blanks left over from last year. As long as the tags are correct then I'd be happy. Also the replica jerseys are harder for the fakers to make as you need machinery, whereas the authentic range are all sewn so they just need a workforce. I've not seen a fake replica (yet).

Thanks for the rapid response. I can go about enjoying the rest of the site now.

Yeah I've never seen a fake replica before. As Billsfan says, they'd be too much effort to make for the money they'd be able to charge.

Real authentics are 150, so they can sew on (badly) some cheap numbers and list them for 30 to sucker in some people who don't know/don't care (coz theys cheap innit) that they're buying a fake. Thus making about 29.50 profit.

But to make a replica appeal to the same sort of buyer, they'd have to list them at about a fiver and make only a few quid profit.
