Curry1fan Posted January 30, 2009 Report Share Posted January 30, 2009 OK so I'm not exactly a veteran jersey collector or anything. Back when I was first very new to the idea of collecting, I scoured Ebay and it was obvious to me even then that so many jerseys were fake and badly made to the point where it was laughable. Now that I'm getting more into the hobby, I almost wish I could pull people aside when I'm at hockey games and tell them how badly customized their jersey is if they are wearing a fake. Since we are the minor league affiliate of Pittsburgh, a lot of people like to wear Crosby jerseys or the blue jeresey. I've seen it all I swear...from the way off color of vegas gold, the totally wrong font for customizing, the triangle in the center of the alternate logo being gold instead of a brighter yellow...even at least one WBS Pens jersey customized the wrong way. Are you ever tempted to inform your fellow fans that while they have good intentions (of supporting their team), their jersey is of an epic fail proportion? I wonder how so many devoted fans could be so stupid about the fact that they do have a fake jersey. And since fake jerseys were seized in Pittsburgh last year, you'd think we'd have reason to be concerned. I guess some people don't. So what is your first reaction if you're at a game? And do you ever wish you could tell people "Nice try, but..."? Make this thread as humorous as you want. I was just curious to see what everyone else thinks of this.
