For 35.00, I didn't care if it was real or not.... After getting I knew it wasn't real even though it had all of the Reebok tags on it. One thing I liked about it is that everything was stitched on it. The weight of the jersey was a little less than my Bettis jersey but WELL worth the 35.00.
I have since bought 3 other jerseys on ebay ranging from 55.00 - 65.00 and they are all the same quality of the Ben jersey. IMO, they are 10x better than those cheap screen printed Reebok jerseys you find for 80.00 - 90.00 in sports stores.
They are probably made in some sweat shop in China but they look real with everything stitched on and thats all I care about.
Hope this helps....
yeah, I paid $35. And the sleeves are legit. The one thing I wondered about was how heavy the material was. But for $35, you really can't go wrong. The nameplate has always been a pet peeve with me on this jersey. The truly authentic ones don't have the right nameplate IMO. This one looks right to me. Thanks for the post.....
