I saw a framed autographed Giroux knockoff WC classic jersey (the Tiger looking one) for sale in a sports memorabilia store. This raises many questions about the store. Like are the other jerseys knockoffs and did Giroux really sign it? I find it suspicious that a sports memorabilia shop that presumably gets its merchandise from a wholesaler would have this in the shop. I assume that wholesalers buy their merchandise from companies that players sign for or from the team directly, so it is also suspicious because I doubt the Flyers would allow Giroux to sign knock off jerseys for a wholesaler to sell. So unless this guy bought the knock off and had Giroux personally sign it, I don't think I will ever buy anything from there again.

EDIT: I don't know if I was very clear with my suspicions but you get the drift. Memorabilia shops probably don't sell personally signed items, so I doubt a wholesaler or the team is selling knock-off jerseys.
