LOL, how do you have 932 posts on here allready?

Anyways, try Harwin St. I think those little places have everything in a fake brand. I don't think that too many people make fake jerseys though. You might be able to get a good Carr or Boselli jersey.

Maybe I'm just a nit-picker but I've never seen a good fake jersey. I can always find something wrong with one pretty quickly. They are all over ebay right now and if you do a search there for "Football Jersey Made in China" and check the box marked "search title and description" you will get lots of hits. Sadly you will not find any Texans in there. These guys seem to be mostly doing runs of a handful of players (you can guess I'm sure, MANNING, TOMLINSON, BUSH, and repeat) but no Texans seem high-profile enough to be worth faking.

You should keep your eyes peeled for used real Texans jerseys if you want a bargain but that's just my opinion. I sometimes jump on them after the season ends when a lot of places put them on sale.

I don't remember, but perhaps Walmart has some at a good price. The best time is always after the season ends or late spring to early summer.

If you shop Ebay, it is best to check the sellers feedback number and rating. If the numbers are well into the hundreds or thousands and the ratings are 98 to 100%, then even if its fake, it isn't something that you would be ashamed to wear.

Personally, I like Ebay sellers who market jerseys with stitched letters. Tags naming companies such as Reebok and Nike can easily be stitched on and claimed as authentic. Even though I have a few that don't quite pass the authentic test, but are very well made, look good, and of much better quality than some of the screened ones that cost more.

I just purchased an authentic 49er jersey that came from the organization, complete with autograph. My son is an avid 49er fan and has an Ebay seller's version. In doing a comparison, there was a difference seen, and to our surprise the Ebay had nicer detail in the stripes than the authentic (fake, stitched stripes, authentic screened stripes).

I guess the questions to answer to is how real do you want it?

You can get a Carr jersey on ebay for $10 before shipping.

Get that and then put duct tape on the back with Schaub's name to replace the name.

I bought a fake Mario jersey off of ebay last year for $30. I will say this, it looks a whole lot better and more real than those cheap iron on numbered replicas that the NFL sells for $70 in some cases. I wore it last year down there and several were amazed that it was an ebay knock off. However when it comes to ebay knock offs you never know what you are going to get. I have been lucky so far with both football and soccer jerseys.

The best way to search ebay knock offs is to search "texans authentic jersey". The knock offs always advertise as authentic because of the sewn on numbers.

If you don't mind having one for a player not currently on the roster, there are Domanick Davis (not Williams) #37 Reebok EQT jerseys going for $35 in the NFL.com shop.

Clear shipping tape looks and works better.

Default Re: Help on buying jerseys

Here's my $.02....

The recommendations all listed above I can say "Amen" to.

1) I've picked up a handful of Chinese or whatever "authentic" jerseys off of ebay. So said, I think that these do look considerably better and seem to be of better quality that the "replica" jerseys that one runs across on the team websites, etc. If nothing else, your undershirt color won't show up through your numbers. Some of them are better than others, but a couple that I snagged have been really nice and worth the money. Great deals, actually.

2) I also scored one of the DD/DW EQT jerseys and it is pretty nice as well. If you don't have a ton of cash, that's a nice route to go and no one is going to throw beer on you for wearing the jersey of the Texans' all-time leading rusher (er, at least I think that they wouldn't).

3) I've got a couple of David Carr jerseys - blue and white - and I'm currently hunting a local source to replace the nameplates with a Schaub nameplate. I found one source but I'm trying to find a better one that uses the "dazzle" material to match the upper. If I can find a source and the prices are reasonable, I'll be sure to pass that along.

Please do. As a poor person, I can't afford a new Schaub jersey, but...hey...the ones with Carr's name sewn on are going for (relatively) cheap....

I will pass it along.

Actually, the biggest problem right now isn't going to be the tackle twill lettering, I've found a source for that. What I really need is a source for the dazzle (man, I feel awfully freakin' cheesy when I type that) material. One can't just order blank nameplates. The NFL Gestapo has put the clamps on that.

So said, if we could rustle up a couple of yards of close-enough-to-liberty-white and awful-lot-like-deep-steel-blue dazzle material to make some blank nameplates then I could line up the lettering and a embroidery shop...

I wonder if this stuff would work:

Probably just pie in the sky but I'm going to keep plugging away at it.

MBM -

I just got off the phone with an embroidery shop right down the road from my house (in Lake Charles, LA) and they said that they are pretty confident that they ought to be able to change out the nameplates only.

I'll drop them off on Monday of next week then report back with cost and lead time. I know you'd have to pay postage and such, but this at least gives you a ray of hope that maybe that Carr jersey is more than just really expensive toilet paper.

Hopefully these guys will be able to convert the Carr jerseys to Schaub. Then I can turn my old Foreman into a Greenwood.... ah, screw that. I'll make that one personalized for me.
