Counterfeit "authentics" usually have a few common telltale signs besides the too good to be true pricing. The fight strap is all wrong from its length and width to how it is sewn to the jersey. The crests are usually bubbly looking. Colors aren't right. The NHL shield at the collar is usually horrendously embroidered on fakes (they are improving of late). Reebok does not make a size 48 authentic jersey in an Edge cut so any jersey that looks like a 2007 or newer version in 48 is fake.

There are a ton of counterfeit Penguins Winter Classic jerseys on ebay that were copied down to the MeiGray tag on the inside. They all use the same registration number and most of them misspell "group" as "groop".
