I've noticed a few folks around here have bought "authenic" Dolphin jerseys off of ebay. I know there not the real deal, but when you got them did they look cheap or look authenic. Hey, if you can get an authenic looking jersey for 1/5 off the cost, why not.

I don't know what happened. Typed my message, even previewed it. Went back a few minutes late and to check response and seen "sweet", "I've n?" and a smilie. Then looked at my post and noticed all that was in the block was "I've n". WTF happened, I don't know. Anyway, I just edit the original.

you know, I don't think that the girl in your avatar made the squad. If she didn't, then it's a darn shame, and she can cheer for me anyday.

I have not bought one of them, but from reading other posts from people who have bought them and looking at the pictures of them it seems like they are the same as the authentics except for the name on the back (different lettering) and the 40th anniversary patch has the clock hands on them. Again, I do not have one, just going by what others have said.

I have 1. It looks fine. You would have to be some kind of Jersey expert to know if it's real or not.

Not to get off topic, but watching the NFL network special on the Dolphin cheerleader last year, she did make the squad, but don't know what happened with her.

Thanks for the input on the jersey, I'm thinking about getting one, maybe a Culpepper, even though it has a fake 40th anniversary patch.

I have purchased a Clayton Jersey, not necessarily authentic, but supposedly with sewn on patches. It arrived today so i am anxious to see what it looks like when i get home. Ifs its any good, I will post a pic..or at least try to.

The NFL is a money marketing machine anyway, so if you found something that looks like the real deal, and it doesn't bother you that it didn't come from the nfl shop, don't even worry about it. Enjoy it, and just know when you get to the games and see all the authentic jerseys, you paid 1/5 the price and got practically the same thing. I wouldn't think too many people sell used ones, so who cares if theirs is more valuable then yours. Think about it

I have purchased a couple as well. My advice to you would be to check out the stripes around the collar and sleeves. Also look at the numbers for boarders. From my experience, I did recieve a dud that I would have detected if I had known what to look for.

Yeah she made it, I watched the show on NFL network last week, damn that was fun :D She was one of my faves.

Edit smoking crack here is bad for you as I realised that it was for last year, must have been still in lust for them in their short skirts.

The cheaper 'authentics' on ebay are frauds but they are a nice product for the money you pay.

I will be the first to agree that Ebay is flooded with fakes and rip offs, however.. If you know what you are looking for and are patient you can find some amazing deals. I live and Canada and frequently visit Buffalo. The authentics sold there are $240 - $260 depending on size and jersey. I have bought 4 authentic jerseys off Ebay for a fraction of the cost. I have three Miami Dolphins jerseys and 1 Washington (For my dad), and I can assure you they are all authentic. The biggest tell tell sign is the numbers and letters of the jersey. Read the comments of buyers and scan for some distance back. I bought an orange Zach Thomas $75 but had to wait forever for it to arrive. It was worth the weight. see link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=24962&item=8735497101

I also bought a Ricky Williams aqua for $31 (Yes 31 I know it is hard to believ but true). The link is gone cause they remove the photos after a period of time. Also a white Taylor for $56. Here is a link to one excellent seller.

Just trying to help out the community here but there are good deals. :wink:

I bought an "authentic" aqua JT jersey for 75 bucks on e bay. I did however...get a Mitchell and Ness throwback marino circa '96 for 75 bucks from a friend cuz it was too big for him...its almost 400 bux brand new. On the JT jersey...there are clock hands on the 40th anniversary patch and the lettering looks a little weird on the back. It's still probably my most prized jersey. Besides the marino one of course ;)

yeah i personally dont care i just like how the sleeves are .....the replicas are cheap lookin but i still like em....all jerseys that i'll buy from now on will be "authentic" you know how you can tell they're not the real deal? If you look at the 40th anniversary patch...its smaller and the colors are different on the lettering compared to the authentic patch....but i still love em! :)

I actually got two of the 40th anniversary patched ones of Ronnie Brown. I think they are sweet. Some people are hung up on jerseys being the "real deal" but I'm not one of them. I'll gladly take something that is close and still looks really good over something that costs me $250. So in my opinion, do it....it's worth it. :D

i just bought a fake chambers jersey after a post on here, but the guys ebay account got banned and so did his pay pal account, so i cant send the money or whatever. Unfortunate, 35 dollars for a fake jersey is worth it i think.

Here is a follow up. This is the Mark Clayton Jersey off Ebay. I paid $41 for it. It is a Reebok jersey, came with the tags and everything. It has sewn on numbers and letters. Its not a "throwback" but its as good as it gets for the price.
