Starter jerseys

Recently, I, for the first time, have bought some Starter jerseys. My question is are there two kinds of authentics? I have a couple that have fight straps and the reinforced elbows but the one I received today had neither. It had a numbered size which made me think it was authentic but without those features, I'm guessing it's not?

What teams? Starter did sell Pens and Bruins' third jerseys without straps and elbow inserts. These jerseys were made in Haiti. Do a search for Starter and you will find a lot of threads on Starter authentics.

starter jerseys seem like they are all over the place detail wise. some made in haiti, some made in el salvador, some made in wisconsin, and I have a Habs starter authentic that was made in canada and "assembled from US and canadian components". Uniforms that aren't uniform...an interesting concept.

I have dozens of Starter authentics, and I've never seen a Canadian made one. Interesting. Generally, it fell this way:

El Salvador=retail authentics (jerseys sold to the public)

Berlin, WI=team issued (not generally sold to the public, though some got out)

Haiti=some of the thirds Pittsburgh and Boston, no fight strap or elbow inserts.

As with anything else, there may be other examples, but this is a general guideline.

And for those who care:

Korea = Replicas, good quality, sewn crests and re-inforced elbows.

Yeah, the one I received yesterday was a Pooh Bear authentic. It doesn't seem to fit like my other 52's either, but that probably is a reflection on the sizing of the time and not a quality issue.
