yeah they're legit... and if they arent they're very close to it. i highly recommend that site. only thing is they come directly from china and take 10-14 days to arrive but thats reasonable.

Based on the pictures, they sure dont look legit.

The numbers are all different sizes and not all at the same spot on the chest.

If the Lettering is the only fake thing about the jersey buy a blank one and take it to the wachovia center and they will customize it for you.

It annoys me that the replica jerseys they sell at Flyers games are so crappy. They are not sewn-on. You'd think the Flyers would sell you something cool, but no - its an iron on.

And nobody would laugh at you if your jersey wasnt customized exactly like the real jerseys are. I'd say over 50% of all Flyers jerseys I see at games are customized completely wrong.

So, where can one actually get a legitimate replica jersey (let's say Richards with the C), without having to order it via customization from nhl.com?

Since I'm out of the area, I'd have to order online. I sent my folks to a few Modell's, but they were all sold out...plenty of Briere jerseys that nobody wants.

2 years ago i paid 44 bucks for a orange(that alterante 3rd they had for a couple of seasons) replica jersey of Forsberg from some guy in England, it had the A instead of the C but who cares, if you want the jersey and think its cool buy it.
if I had a kid and he had one that was "fake" id smack anyone who would make fun of him. I mean really. who cares.

Yep, mine is the orange 3rd as well, I always liked those for some reason.

Replica soccer jerseys are actually much, much worse, my sister got me one for my birthday one time and it was pretty awful (though of course I appreciated the gesture, wasn't her fault).

seriously. the term " authentic " shouldnt be thrown around. you know who has an authentic jersey? the players who wear them in game, and the ones that got them off their back at fan appreciation. thats a truly authentic jersey.

what flyer fan would rather have a guy wearing an "authentic penguins jersey" next to him then someone wearing a flyers jersey who doesnt have double tackle twill and octogonal counterform on the nameplate?

if there is one. i will shoe him or her in the groin area. elitest ******.

I once bought a AC Milan and Chelsea jersey off ebay, I won with a bid of $.99 each and the shipping was like $5. Ill take any jersey that is $5.99 though.

My problem with these jerseys is it's essentially theft from the Flyers and the players people claim they root for. I guarantee you that the Flyers and the player aren't their share of the sale when you by them from these fly-by-night retailers.

Yes, the Flyers/Mike Richards have more money than me, but that doesn't make it right to steal from them. Same reason why I think streams should still be banned from be posted.

They make 6 million dollars doing something they love. Many of us make $75,000 a year doing something we hate. Im not really worried about Mike Richards not getting his fair share of money from a jersey.

So you'd be cool with someone making $20K a year doing something he despises coming in to your house and stealing $25?

when you make $6 million a year plus money from sponsors or what not, I am not worried that he is not getting his money on jersey sales. I would love to have $6 in my life time, hes getting close to 6 mil a year for 12 years, I am not worried about him not getting whatever he gets for everyone of his jerseys sold

If it helps you sleep at night, go ahead tell yourself that.

It's still theft.

I guarantee that Mike Richards doesn't stay up at night thinking about people buying his jersey direct from China instead paying through the NHL.

If it makes you feel better knowing that Mike Richards really cares about making money on jersey sales, go ahead and tell yourself that.

I don't think he cares.

it's theft, but i would also say that the price companies charge for jerseys is tantamount to stealing as well. $300 for a shirt that probably cost less than $15 to make is kind of ridiculous. that kind of business strategy makes it really hard for me to sympathize with the companies.

If people are willing to spend the money its a perfect business strategy.

that's fine. i'm not saying that they should lower their prices, i'm just saying that it's hard for me to sympathize with them. it's far easier for me to sympathize with someone who buys questionable goods at a significantly lower price.

I sympathize with no one. The NHL (maybe?) overcharges for their product, but that's their right because they have a product people want. Doesn't others the right to steal the Flyers logo and make a profit of it.

Honestly, I expect that the NHL has set the price point that maximizes dollars of profit.

well, that's the conflict of capitalism. the consumer tries to pay the least possible and the seller tries to charge the highest possible. as a consumer, i would clearly sympathize more with other consumers. maybe if i ever go into business, i'll sympathize more with the companies.

Meh ... you are asking me to choose between to sides, one who has Holmgren and the other who has Jester.

I'll go with Holmgren's side.
