PostSubject: Fake Bears Jersey   Sat Jan 02 2010, 20:37

HI all,

Bought a Bears Forte Jersey last year before i stumbled upon this great site.

Posted on here as i thought it would add to the ever growing catolouge of fakes.

Anyway bought this jersey off ebay from t-j-o (no longer on ebay...well, under this name at least) for around 30 quid.

I suspected something when i got it and can remember thinking, thank god i didn't pay full price if this is the quality of an authentic jersey.

Just look at the stitching on the sleve below the GSH, not to mention the poorly cut numbering.

So i did a little research and discovered its most probably a fake Embarassed.

Anyway i will always keep it in my collection, as and when it grows, cause its all part of the learning curve and will be a great comparission when that great day comes and i get my first authentic jersey (very very soon i hope).

Take a look for yourselves.

Excellent example of a fake jersey. It's got the 08 NFL logo, which on the collar badge is really poorly embroidered. The hem tag is really interesting as it has the 08 logo, but the Reebok on the bottom right is the 07 style RBK and not the 08 Reebok.

The hologram is round, with helmets which hasn't been official since 2005.

Thanks for posting grazeapat.

I find it funny how counterfeiters NEVER get the sleeve numbers right on their Bears jerseys. On REAL Bears jerseys, the sleeve numbers are of a thicker and fatter font compared to the numbers on the chest and back. Fake jerseys have the same font everywhere. I find it funny how there's sellers on eBay that talk about how much they hate fakes, yet they're selling TONS of fake Bears jerseys themselves.

Another thing I've noticed is that fake Bears jerseys have mesh sleeve stripes. For real jerseys, the sleeve strips should be solid w/ no holes. I've seen some fake jerseys that have the sleeve numbers correct, but the sleeve stripes are poor quality and mesh. On an true authentic, the stripes should be made of a very tough screenprint, the kind that you can wash over and over and not worry about the material feeling off or fading. This is good considering this is the only design on the jerseys besides the numbers of course. In addition, the screened GSH should be on the left sleeve ONLY.

Finally, Bears jerseys after 2002 do NOT have cuffed sleeves. Chicago, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Tennessee, New England, and San Fransisco are the six teams that do NOT make cuffed sleeves for the RETAIL authentics. Why they don't I don't know, it's a pretty dumb move on their part. They advertise these jerseys as the ones the players wear, yet there are no cuffed sleeves.

Hope this helps Smile

Thanks, I definitely learned after getting a fake Hester jersey when I first started collecting. I always knew there was something funny about those sewn-on stripes...
