how can it be the same but lighter? its either the same or NOT the same, right? Recall your easter candy? Its like saying that a hollow and solid bunny are the same but one is lighter. YEah, both are chocolate but there are obvious differences between the two in what your going to get.
The premier will rip easily in comparison to the authentic.
If you were to take 3 replica jerseys and put one inside the other, thats about what game weight is(no crest/lettering/numbering. The knit is much heavier. another example: Two guys standing at a camp fire side by side. Wind blows hot embers up onto the jerseys of both. Both jump back and brush off quickly. The replica will have holes in it while the game weight may have scorch marks but no hole.
in repairing, the game weight you can "darn" back in well and easily enough that a small rent would be hard to notice. These vintage/replicas are too thin for the same method and a repair stands out like a sore thumb.
