    No which site has the better quality knockoffs? I'm trying to get one before the Jets game

    EDIT: Also, how do the knockoffs fit? Are they too tight, too big, or what? In the non embroidered jerseys from like Sports Authority I wear a Large.

    IMO, both of those jersey's are fake. The OP may have paid $300 for the 'real' one, but I think he was ripped off.

    I have to point out that the older authentic jerseys have a zigzag stitch on them, and there is no backing like yours has. I have an older authentic that my wife got me from the pro shop, along with a fake. The first thing that shows it is fake are the shiny numbers, and if you hold up the embroidered logos next to each other there are a lot of differences. All I know is that whenever I go to a bar to watch the game I don't have to worry about spilling something on the fake because it wasn't that much.

    if you really want to know how to spot a fake go to this site http://nfljerseyfanparadise.forumotion.com/. great resource for a jersey collector, i learned alot there. it looks to me that both jerseys are fakes. the stitching is all wrong on the first jersey. a real dolphins jersey has 3 layers of fabric forming the numbers, not 2 layers with orange embroidered on one of layer. also the hem tag appears to be a fake.

    This is a authentic hem tag from a 2005-2006 jersey. Notice how much thicker the lines are on the football player and the color of "PLAYERS INC". the r and e's in reebok look wrong and the reebok "vector" looks badly stitched. also look how flat the hem tag is compared to the fake.

    REAL 2005-2006


    FAKE 2005-2006


    on the second jersey the layering looks right, but the stitching is wrong.

    this is how the stitching should look. should be more stitches and tighter.




    the second jersey has a hem tag from 2008-to present jersey. the hem tag is also wrong.
    some tells are on the football player. this is a little chart for seeing the differences.


    another tell is there is no space in between "NFLPLAYERS".

    REAL 2007


    REAL 2008-present


    FAKE 2008-present. no space between nflplayers, no angled butt on the player, straight leg, helmet stitched to thick in the back.
