It is good or not?

Recommended Posts

Seller came back and said it is a 50.It was originally a GOMEZ and he replaced the name with Richards. Still waiting on picture of neck-tag.

Looks pretty good but as already mentioned, we'd need to see the neck tag. Other considerations:

No nameplate

Richards never wore the Vector logo

Wow, I went to the 'Hawks game last night and we were in SRO (only Ticketmaster tickets we could get). I was really noticing the jerseys, since I was virtually the only one without one. At least up there, a bunch of Premiers and almost all the rest were fake Edges. I can really see the Tomahawk fakes now, not to mention the embroidered Reebok tag above the #, rather than a Reebok patch. Holy crap! Does everyone shop on CL? I know I am, but I'm looking for a real one (needle in a haystack).

The numbers look good from what my "newbie-eye" can tell, just looking for opinions(and possibly help on a place to get a ccm patch to replace the missing logo on the rear hem if in fact I do get it.)

From the picture added, it's pretty clear now that it's legit.

It's a legit replica but both the letters and numbers are awful.

Fake.

Hey, thanks for the opinion... If you don't mind me asking, what about the jersey indicates that its fake - what should i look for when purchasing a jersey in the future?

There is a great tutorial in the jersey How-To section here:

After you start collecting for awhile, it becomes very easy to spot the fakes!

My first checkpoints on a jersey are always the fight strap, crest and tags to see if it is a fake. Once you know what those look like on the real thing, the fakes jump out pretty quickly.

I'm the second newest newbie here. :mellow: But I've been looking for an authentic Blackhawks Edge jersey. The easiest ways to tell with the Blackhawks, in my month of learning about this, are as follows:

1) When you see the jersey inside out, the black and white stripes on the bottom are actually printed on the real ones, and tend to be sewn together on the fakes

2) The Tomahawks on the shoulders are embroidered in a traditional "back and forth" embroidery on the fakes, but are layered in kind of a chain stitich on the real ones such that one green stick is on top of the other which is on top of the "C."

3) The fight strap is attached on a fake one with a thin "X" stitched into the middle of the piece that holds the strap to the jersey. On the real one, there is an "X" as well, but it is a stronger zigzag stitching. Also the fakes sometimes have a flap of fabric that is not secured at the edges holding the fight strap.

4) The Indian Head embroidery on a real one is very evident on the black part of the headdress. It is very three dimensional, rather than being a black vinyl patch with gold embroidery.

There are a zillion other "tells," but for a newcomer like me, those are generally the easiest to spot in pictures.

If I have any of this wrong, please let me know!

PS - I was responding to this post:

"Yay or nay please?

Yes, all their stuff is legit.

The Canucks did a "fight the fake" campaign. The examples translate to other teams' sweaters. A lot of the Canucks, Flyers, and Preds (new gold) fakes are way off on the color.

Look at the fight strap, especially the connection point to the fake Kane jersey on ebay. The NHL shield at the collar looks embroidered rather than a sewn patch. The hang tags on the sleeve are bad as well. It also has a poorly done Reebok tag sewn inside the collar, the Reebok band inside the collar is bad, and what appears to be an embroidered vector on the back.

OK, I'm pretty darn sure this is real, and I just bought it. :o The one thing I haven't seen before is that there is no Reebok tag on the inside collar. Can someone confirm that this is a real Edge? There is a tag on the inside of the bottom of the jersey which shows it being 7231A with 09/11 date. Here's pics.post-10249-0-77567000-1369427444_thumb.jpost-10249-0-86659700-1369427456_thumb.j
