kygermo Posted February 2, 2016 Report Share Posted February 2, 2016 (edited) *If this topic is in the wrong forum, I apologize in advance. Hello everyone! So, I'm new to this (very informative) site. I stumbled upon this place after I did a Google search on how to spot fake jerseys. I'm new to the jersey world. I have a whopping total of two Flyers premier jerseys (a blank 08-10 black alternate and a Max Talbot Winter Classic). I learned very quickly on here that A: Premiers are not very well-liked at all and B: There's A LOT of fakes on ebay. As much as I love hockey and as much as I admire a handsome looking jersey, I simply can't afford to shell out the absurd amount of money for authentics. Yes, I understand the quality is off the charts and that there's a sense of pride owning one, but my wallet thinks otherwise. While I identify myself as a Flyers fan first and foremost, I also admire and appreciate other teams and players, and I appreciate them enough to seek out their sweaters. I'm a huge fan of the Hawks 09 WC sweater, and have wanted one for years. I actually found myself on Jersey Baron's store a couple days ago before I found this place, and it was interesting to see the man's near immaculate reputation here. And while he has those Hawks sweaters in stock, I can't say I'm a big enough fan of Chicago to buy one, especially since I feel it's only right to get a Flyers sweater as my first authentic. And since I cant track down a premier WC of theirs (unless somebody here has one they would like to sell... ), I found an alternative: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JONATHAN-TOEWS-19-CHICAGO-BLACKHAWKS-2009-WINTER-CLASSIC-JERSEY-WRIGLEY-FIELD-/111883611306?hash=item1a0cc86caa:g:47YAAOSw-zxWo5Gh Now obviously I know it's a bit silly to present a fake jersey to a group of people who own real-deal stuff. However, what I wanted to know from whomever chimes in is, well, just how bad of a fake is it? Just how foolish would you think I am if you saw me on the street wearing it? There's obvious signs on it that shows its fakeness (the stitching on the crest, the shield underneath the laces, not the correct "C", the W on the back), but its VERY tempting since it's only $88. I'm ready to buy it right now, but I think I did the correct thing in getting everyone's opinions here first. Please help! And btw, let me say again that if anybody has a premier on here they wouldn't mind parting with, please keep me in mind (don't really care who's on the back to an extent..) Also, I'm very interested in the Kings 2014 SS sweaters too, but those are ###### near impossible to find. Thank you in advance and thank you for being so very very informative. I did a crash course on learning all things authentic on here last night for many hours. Edited February 2, 2016 by kygermo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
