fake retro shirts

This is a simple but effective guide as to how to not get fleeced on eBay when buying football shirts. Follow these simple rules and you should be ok! Remember that for this example, I will be looking at Arsenal Nike tops as they are the most commonly featured. This is the same for Chelsea, Man U, Liverpool etc.

1. When you first search "Arsenal Jersey", you will see a lot of commercial-looking listings with nice pictures etc. LOOK AT THE ITEM TITLE. The example I will use comes from Malaysia and says: "06 ARSENAL AWAY FOOTBALL SHIRT SOCCER JERSEY L/S XL" Seems OK? Wrong. Where does it say the word Nike? Sellers of cheap fakes do this to avoid legal action because, if they say the item is a Nike garment and it isn't, they get in trouble. If they don't say it's Nike in the auction header, it probably isn't. It's a cheap fake.

2. When you go into the auction, check the pictures carefully. Look at the badge. The fatal mistake these sellers make is that the wording, or pictures, are either crooked or just look shoddy. Some sellers even make the mistake of screen-printing THE WHOLE SHIRT! My advice is to go to a website like subsidesports.com and find the shirt you want. Check the picture on that website with the sellers picture and see how they match up. you'll know deep down if it is a fake.

3. Retro shirts are not commercially made anymore. Anybody selling these by the bucket load is selling FAKES. The shirts these people sell would not be going for £12 a time, it would be £120 minimum as they are out of production. Don't trust it!

4. If you are buying a numbered Premiership shirt, look at the bottom of the numbers. It should feature the Premier League Lion, and (c) FAPL 1996 underneath this in small letters. If it doesn't, the numbers are FAKE.

5. If you are buying a Premiership shirt with sleeve patches, note this. The patches are only produced in FELT format. If they are screen printed, they are FAKE. Note though, that screen printed Premiership numbers and letters DO exist, along with the better quality felt ones. 6. Some sellers claim to sell "sample" shirts which are to be released as next season's top. THIS IS A LIE, THERE IS NO SUCH THING! All possible jerseys are catalogued, and the only shirts produced are the final shirts that go to the club to decide whether or not they want it as their shirt! The likelihood of this one shirt reaching eBay is 1,000,000/1, and the likelihood of it reaching Thailand, Malaysia or anywhere else is quadruple that.

Hope this helps, and happy bidding! bigtymer1409

i dont think the first point is necessarily right. Ive been buying jersey from Italy and it doesnt said anywhere NIKE INTER or NIKE ARSENAL. I bought it from the official website. And its made in Sri Lanka. I bought one on ebay too. Its made in Morocco. Same quality. I dont think thats really relevant. I think countries made different qualities and yet they have license. Those who doesnt have, usually didnt put anything or any NIKE or ADIDAS sign in their shirt. Just plain sponsor and team logo.
