How to Find Authentic NFL Jerseys

By Edited May 2, 2015 1 1

One of the best ways you can show your love for NFL football is by wearing your favorite team or player jersey on game day Sundays.  Whether you are a hardcore fan that follows every play of every game or just a general NFL enthusiast,  there is something special about putting on authentic NFL jerseys that make you feel great.  

How can I tell it is Authentic?
Make sure the colors match exactly what you are used to seeing on television.  The colors on authentic NFL jerseys will be bright and vibrant.  The colors on a lot of cheap replicas will appear more dull and muted.  

Look for the NFL shield on the collar.  It should be stitched on and the stitching on the shield itself should be high quality and tight.  

If you have the chance you should feel the fabric.  It should be high quality and heavy.  Many replicas use lightweight cheap materials and you can feel the difference simply by picking it up.   

Look at all the stitching and lettering throughout the jersey.  It should be high quality, tight, and straight.  Authentic NFL jerseys are made with the same craftsmanship and durability as the ones worn by the players.  Players take a beating out on the field and the jerseys are designed to hold up to the punishment.  

Where to Get Authentic NFL Jerseys?
Just as important as knowing what makes a jersey authentic is knowing where to get it.  You don’t want to waste your time shopping at stores that claim to have authentic NFL jerseys only to find out that you are getting a cheap replica.  So where should you go?

NFLShop.com  This is the official online store for NFL.  The gear you find here is legit and because it is coming from the NFL itself, you can feel confident that you are getting what you are expecting.  

FansEdge.com  This is a great shop.  They have just a monster selection of gear for not only football, but all sorts of sports.  They sell a whole array of jerseys, including authentic ones.  Just make sure you know what you are ordering since they also sell replicas.  If you are ever in doubt, call or email their customer service to make sure it is the real thing.  

Quick Tips
Don’t hastily buy what is claiming to be an authentic NFL Jersey without knowing what the return policy.  If you ever have a doubt or don’t like it once you get it, you need to be able to return it no questions asked.  

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is--you won’t find an authentic NFL jersey for $50. That doesn’t mean you can find a good deal though.
