As the title says,I need help to make an informed discussion if this is a fake or not.I believe it is(for 85 bucks,it seems like it),but I've never seen a winter classic jersey up close.Thanks for your help,and if this is the wrong area to post,I apologize.

most definitely looks like a fake to me

It might not necessarily be a fake, but just a replica. The replica WC jerseys look exactly like that and I would know since I ordered one from nhl.com. I ended up sending it back though because the quality was absolute crap.

That is what I was thinking.The guy said he has the bill and tags for it(tags still on it) so I will go look at it later this week.Is there any specific way to tell if this is a replica or not?I've never really looked at am edge,much less owned one(I do have 3 old ccm ones though).

The most telling sign of a replica WC jersey is the fact that the NHL shield is missing from the collar area just above the laces. The authentic WC jerseys have the NHL shield. Also, the replicas feel very thin and are somewhat see-through. The sizing for replica jerseys are small, medium, large, etc. while the sizing for authentic jerseys is based on chest size, i.e. 48, 50, 52, etc.

Believe me...it is 100 percent fake regardless if he has a reciept for it. Probably a reciept from a real one. But I'm certain it is not real. You can tell by the nameplate is not done properly and the style of numbers as well.

Thanks much for the info.He did say that it's a size 48,but is more like a 52 or 54,which is something that worries me.

Another way to tell is to look at the tags and see what type of jersey it is. The tag on the inside of the jersey will say "authentic jersey" on it in English and French as well as the attached tags. Authentic jerseys are also referred to as Reebok Edge jerseys. The replica jerseys are referred to as Reebok Premier jerseys.

After really studying the pictures you provided, I would say this jersey is neither authentic nor a replica. It is most likely a Chinese knockoff. I'd stay away from it.

That nameplate on the back is horrific. I wouldn't buy anything that remotely looks like that.

It's a Korean Knockoff, he Paid about 30$ for it. The Color of the name and Numbers are off, the spacing of everything is off. YOu'd have a case for getting your money back. Although, If Price is an issue, you're not going to get a real one for 85$

If you're a Stickler for authenticity, then I'd send it back. I got a Toews Blackhawks jersey, that looked incredible, except they used the wrong font for the name. I'm pretty much the only one that notices it, but it bugs me enough to not wear it.

While we're on the subject, where do you guys go to buy jerseys besides NHL.com or eBay? I'm trying to save up for an Yzerman one - just a boring old replica one, nothing fancy - and obviously I can't buy it at the official store now, but I hate how sketchy eBay is. Any online stores you'd trust?

NHL.com won't let you do retired number last I knew, icejerseys.com is a reliable site.

I bought my jersey at JC Penny's on sale and took it to my local hockey store and they ordered the replica numbers and letters and did it for me for $60.

I HIGHLY recommend sportsk.com I've ordered three jerseys from them , couldn't be happier. In fact, I just got my Zetterberg winter classic replica in the mail today, just in time for game 4. It looks awesome, $160 including tax and shipping.

It's an Asian knockoff, why do I think that? I own an Asian knockoff. <_< (I did not buy it) From what I can tell, it looks too obvious as someone else already mentioned the crooked nameplate. Another red flag is the price, if it sounds too good to be true, more than likely is. Lastly, I can about bet that the red is a bit off compared to an authentic jersey, it's hard to tell with the pictures you provided though.

Also, there is a gray border around the numbers - which I don't believe are a part of the Winter Classic jerseys.
