Some knockoffs are really good, some are ok, but the
Heritage jerseys are just horrible! They really missed the mark on that one, especially the All-Star patch which is gold??? for some reason!
Funny thing about that Kings jersey above is the knockoffs usually don't sew on that crest on the bottom front of the jersey with the jersey size!!!!!!
Most of the knockoffs attempt to mimic the RBK EDGE Authentics, rather than the Replicas. Only the Replicas have the jersey tag (the grey patch with the jersey size), so that's why most fakes don't include the tag. Note that most fakes also include the fight strap, which is another feature reserved for the Authentics.
