    It's 51" x 24", made of nylon type material and would cost $37 shipped. I will put this on the 2 major boards, 20 available. If interested it would be via paypal only.

    Be careful and expect a letter from the Texans telling you to stop. That's what happened last time someone made flags like these.

    Do you know why? This looks like a great flag and I've got one coming to me soon.

    If that's the case then the marketing dept. needs to get off their ass and start selling them.

    I'm not an IP attorney - but it's either a copyright violation or a trademark infringement.

    The NFL is very picky about unauthorized people making $ using things like NFL logos. Licensing is how they make a good amount of change I would imagine.

    As I posted on another site, I asked about this item a while ago. I spoke with 2 different lawyers of both copyright and trademark backgrounds and a customs agent. As long as this is not being presented as the original or claiming it as a licensed NFL product its ok.

    Agreed.

    Dang I should have sold one of my two when they were going for insane prices, I guess those days are over.

    I'm just relaying what happened to the last person who made flags just like this, I'm sure many fans will be happy getting them from you as they are VERY hard to come by.

    Me too Joe, and I didn't try to sell my extra one. I GAVE it away to a diehard TEXAN fan!! I guess I'm pretty dumb. Never crossed my mind to try to make money off it.

    Don't you remember when they hit Ebay for a ridiculously high price? :-P

    The flags are why some seats are in my name and some are in my wife's. Sadly since we've gotten some extra binders and 2 aprons, lol.

    The "advice" you were given doesn't jive with the NFL trademark agreement stipulations.
    Link
    If you were making these for your own personal use, it's one thing, SELLING them to the public is another. Don't get me wrong, I'd personally LOVE one, but the legalities of it (as this isn't a protected parody) seem fairly straightforward.
