How to Spot Fake NBA Jerseys

Have you ever bought fake NBA jerseys believing it was the real deal? Perhaps you have a jersey that isn’t authentic and are wondering if it’s worth keeping. This guide will help you determine if a NBA jersey is authentic.

How to spot fake NBA jerseys

Fake NBA jerseys come in all price ranges, from the ridiculously obvious to the meticulously precise. Fake NBA jerseys continue to rise in popularity, and sweatshops are becoming more adept at replicating authentic jerseys. How can you tell if you are buying an authentic Adidas NBA jersey or a fake?

I have done all the work. I was swindled. I was able to grab a bargain that I can confirm to be legitimate. My experience has been combined to create a guide to help you spot fake NBA jerseys. It takes only 9 steps.

9. Stitching

It is possible to determine if you are wearing fake NBA jerseys by studying how they are made. Screen printing is used to screen print the numbers and lettering on the Nike Swingman jersey. The twill stitching is used for the Nike Authentic and Adidas Swingman editions. This detail is often overlooked by sweatshops and can be used to determine if a jersey from the NBA is authentic.

Fake NBA jerseys can be difficult to read, so it is crucial that both numbers and letters are correctly aligned. Fake jerseys can also fray easily if they have any stitching.

You can also spot fake NBA jerseys by looking at patches that are stitched onto the jerseys, such as team logos. These backings are made of cotton paper and can be seen from the inside of a jersey. The jersey’s NBA logo should match the team logo.

8. Fake NBA Jerseys Using Stock Photos

Unofficial sports merchandise dealers can sell you fake NBA jerseys. These sites often display stock jersey photos, which can be a sign that the jersey is fake.

Stock photos can be found on official team websites, such as NBA.com and Footlocker.com. Other authorized online shops like Nike.com or Footlocker.com can sell authentic jerseys. A website with a title like authenticnbajerseyworld.ru with stock photos is a telltale sign that you’re about to buy a fake NBA jersey.

A jersey marked as authentic by the NBA will be sold at a price that is significantly below its recommended retail price (RRP) on websites that are not official merchandise retailers.

7. The Neck Tag is Here!

To avoid buying fake NBA jerseys, make sure you know your personal details. It is easy to tell if I am buying an authentic Adidas NBA jersey or one with a fake neck detail. The logo on the bottom of the photo is authentic Adidas and looks clean. The logo wears much faster than the photo, and the stitching is placed over it. This is another sign of lazy workmanship in sweatshops that make fake NBA jerseys.

6. Where are NBA Jerseys made?

The majority of Nike jerseys are made from Honduras or Guatemala. Nike jerseys are now made in Thailand, while older Nike jerseys are made in Korea. This detail is often overlooked by sweatshops selling fake NBA jerseys. It’s an easy way to distinguish authentic jerseys from fakes.

Adidas jerseys are usually made in Vietnam and Nicaragua. It’s important to pay attention to the place where an NBA jersey was made. This is a great way for you to distinguish a genuine Adidas NBA jersey from a fake.

5. NBA Logo

Fake NBA jerseys often have incorrect NBA logos. A quick way to identify a fake NBA jersey is to compare the NBA logo on jerseys with the Jerry West NBA logo. Fake NBA jerseys are often too thin, and the logo looks more like an alien-looking creature than Jerry West.

An NBA jersey that has the logo of the NBA embroidered on it with multiple layers of stitching can be a sign that it is genuine. Fake NBA jerseys don’t have this detail, and often have a heat-applied patch or sewn on patch.

4. Jock Tag

The jersey jock tag should be positioned in a visible location. When facing the jersey front on, jock tags are located at its bottom right. Fake NBA jerseys can be easily identified by inconsistencies in font size or thickness.

Fake NBA jerseys can make the font too large. Once you know how to spot them, you will be able to identify fake adidas jerseys almost instantly.

One of the best ways to determine if a Nike NBA jersey is real or fake is to look at the words “Engineered according to the exact specifications” of the champion athletes. Fake jerseys are made in sweatshops, so you won’t notice the carelessness of the workers who make them.

3. Perforations

To ensure that the fabric holes are identical with authentic ones, take a look at the patterns. The perforation size will differ between authentic jerseys depending on the brand, generation, and variation. It may be time-consuming to understand perforations, but it is a good way to spot fake NBA Jerseys.

You can help us determine which Adidas NBA jersey is real or fake by taking a look at these authentic Swingman perforations to the left and the Nike Swingman Perforations to the right.

2. Retail tags

It is important to understand that fake NBA jerseys can be identified by retail tags. Fake retail tags are used to disguise the authenticity of authentic tags and many fakes use them. This is one of many ways that people are tricked into purchasing fake NBA jerseys believing they have authentic retail tags.

1. Materials

Fake NBA jerseys are lighter than original jerseys. Vintage jerseys, in particular, are made of heavier premium materials. Although lighter jerseys are possible with new technology, authentic jerseys will still feel superior to fake NBA jerseys.

By running your fingers through the fabric, you can easily identify fake NBA jerseys. The jersey will feel smooth and made from polyester mesh. Fake jerseys are made of inferior materials and can feel rough or scratchy. You’ll be able to tell the difference when you try them on.
