Doubtful. It's for people who haven't seen or held an authentic but swear you can't tell the difference.  $28 vs $280, looks like we're the suckers. 

Or, who don't care. Not everybody is obsessed with jerseys. I hear some people only have one or two!!

From what I saw, most of the posters in there were fully aware the jerseys are knockoffs.

"Hey I got a jersey collection of over 800 jerseys!  Got them all directly from china unlike you suckers who pay five times as much to get official ones from the same favorites lulz" (yes they do contradict themselves like that)

I'm sure their parents love having a bunch of ugly knockoffs in random closets.

So there is a FB group with over 1K members dedicated to Chinese knockoffs.

 

That's nice.

Do you get banned if you try posting a licensed jersey?

Yeah it's rough.  It's largely football jerseys but there is a smattering of other sports in there too.

Wow, just wow. I am surprised that no genius from a real jersey group has posted pictures of real jerseys in that group.

Most likely get deleted.  I joined it out of curiosity but nothing really surprising going on.  If I report the group they just create a new one the next day.

Because those prices are likely pretty close to what they ran at the start and accounting for the rarity of them.

I told a friend last night that the black 08/09 Edge Campbell, I've only seen 5 of those on the market since 2009 (Not counting the list of them that Hawkquarters had originally).

On the alternate Stallberg, how many of those have popped up, and unlike say, Ben Smith or Brandon Pirri, Stallberg actually played full seasons with the Hawks.

Not saying I'd pay that for them, but I found the prices to be reasonable.

Not sure where to post this but I figured here would be best.

So I was at a Devils player signing at a memorabilia store yesterday when the owner of the store mentioned an upcoming signing in January he will be having.  It's for a player who is signed through Fanatics.  According to the contract, a Fanatics rep will be there with the player and one of the stipulations is that no unlicensed items are allowed to be signed.  That means no homemade artwork and knockoff jerseys.  The owner said while he doubts they will do it, the Fanatics rep does reserve the right to have the player not sign any knockoff jerseys.

First time I have seen a signing where they are taking a stand against signing knockoffs.

Ironically, some of the knockoff jerseys might be an upgrade on the Fanatics ones.

Clearly they need to enlist a certified IJ Fake Jersey Spotter.  I hope you earn a big commission for this!

Interesting, but obviously its not being done for the reasons we all would want it to be done. Fanatics is an interested party, they want people to buy their crappy jerseys for more money.

They are even going so far as you cannot have photos you have taken of him during a game to get signed.  Even the photos have to be licensed.

For a "small" fee I would take the job.
