It is good or not?

Recommended Posts

Like Cowboys says, those are absolutely awful fakes. All you have to do is look at a photo of a real one to compare to:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2011-NHL-ALL-STAR-GAME-WEST-TEAM-ISSUED-REEBOK-EDGE-2-0-HOCKEY-JERSEY-SZ-54-/290913512260?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D7606081432187995184%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D290913512260%26

Look at the differences in the light blue color, especially in the collar and hem, the pattern and thickness of the white pinstripes on the sleeves, the dark blue stripes on the collar. The real ones have a lime green stripe in the collar. Also look at the closeups of the texture of the material- the real ones are airknit, while the fake ones have a rougher, waffle-like pattern that looks more like the bubble mesh of the Edge 1.0 jerseys.

Thank you. This is a real learning experience, and I really appreciate being able to come to the experts for advice. I thought I was getting reasonably good about spotting fake Blackhawks team jerseys, but knew nothing about All Star jerseys. I will continue my search for a Hawks jersey, although with their success, I haven't been finding sellers of the real thing for a good price. lol The good news is we have tickets to Round 2, games 1, 5, and 7, but it looks like I'll be wearing a polo instead of a Hawks jersey/sweater.

And the crests on the fakes look like they're made out of marshmallow. Puffy numbers/crests/shoulder patches are always giveaways, too.

Check the TradingPost thread here. HawksFan719 has something in his sale thread. I think it's a replica Winter Classic, but it's a great price and he'd have it shipped to you in time for your games. Just a thought...

Thanks, but I'm looking for a home (red) or away (white) jersey. Not so interested in Winter Classic or black.

Bummer. Good luck, & enjoy the games.

The Smyth and Eberle both look like legit replica jerseys. I don't know anything about the vintage jerseys so I am less sure about the Messier, but I think it's also a real replica or reproduction. I am unsure how accurate the customization is on any of them though. I don't think any of those jerseys are fakes though.

Just a guess, being a newer member with a limited knowledge, but I'm guessing a replica that was personalized?

Can anyone confirm if this is good? Been looking for a starter 48 for a while.

I've dealt with that seller before, 100% legit.

Yup, probably factory customized.

Is it possible for a KOHO game issued/worn jersey to have the black KOHO neck label in the jersey?

The jersey itself is a Legwand mustard Preds jersey, size 56

Oh ok, then most likely no. PM pics if you want to I can probably figure it out for you pretty quick.

Thanks ankle skater. What are the best ways to tell if a 'Hawks jersey is fake? I have found that the usual giveaways for me are when the black and white stripes on the bottom are different pieces of material sewn together rather than one piece that is printed black and white, and when the patch holding the fight tag doesn't have zig zag sewing. Or if the "Reebok" or Reebok symbol above the number is not a patch.

Now that I have found this site, perhaps the best way is for me to post if here. :unsure: Seriously, I am brand new to this, all I want is one nice 'Hawks jersey for a decent price, and I can't believe how much time I am spending on this...

For Hawks jerseys, the real authentics have chain stitching on the crest and shoulder patches, which gives it a distinct look when photographed (see the texture on the crest?): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Authentic-Chicago-Blackhawks-Team-Issue-Jersey-Reebok-Edge-2-0-52-7287-/290913723130?pt=U_Hockey_Fan_Shop&hash=item43bbcf22fa

Fakes either have the indian head as the wrong size, or not chain stitched, and the fight strap usually looks crappy, as seen in the two links i posted previously.

The current usual giveaway on fakes is the too narrow fight strap attachment on all teams. Another Hawks specific feature I see wrong on quite a few fakes is the embroidery on the tomahawks.

Thank you all. I am getting smarter by the day, but it will take a long time to get to where y'all are. I appreciate the guidance.

Ya once you get an authentic or a gamer that really helps to be able to tell the differance. Just before I joined here I bought a really bad fake Then I asked on here about getting a authentic and I ended up buying a gamer and what a world of differance between the jerseys now I'm pretty confident in the reebok edge era jerseys but still learning the older styles.

^one of the quick learners! Im still stoked on how you went right to the gamer. One of the best choices you couldve made and an amazing jersey to boot.
