Fact is, some sites have gotten really good at getting them right. I remember being on the boardwalk years ago and you could spot them a mile away in those little stands. Colors being way off, shiny numbers, wrong fonts, whatever. But it's not like that anymore. The only reason I can even tell they're not real is because I'm a jersey freak. Otherwise, you'd have no idea with most of them.

Honestly, I don't blame anyone who buys them.

And yes, I own a few myself, but won't be buying anymore because I prefer the real deal.
I agree. I haven't owned a hockey jersey in over ten years(Lindros) and I want to buy one that's a good deal. But I can't trust anyone on eBay and I want to get a decent deal on it. I have no idea how to tell what ones are fake. Looking for Giroux or Simmonds WC.
