    I need a retail store, not in the Woodlands.

    Go Texans does not carry. One Fan Attic does not have any, the other only has the super authentic $225 ones.

    Any ideas?

    I thought all retail "real" authentics were at least $200 or more. Of course there are a bunch of fake authentics on ebay, etc.

    There's apparently one with sewn on numbers and name, but screen printed extra graphis. The 'full' authentic has all patches and no screen printing. So says a Fan Attic employee over the phone.

    I have two of those. The first is now a Steve Slaton but it started life (at least life with me) as a Tony Boselli that I found on ebay. It was dirt cheap and I was amazed when I got it to find that even the small "Texans" on the chest is embroidered. The other was a David Carr (acquired the same way) that I've yet to put "SCHAUB" on the back of. I've left it blank for now. When Matt plays in 16 games this year I'll commit to the name.

    I was sorely tempted to put the letters on it this past weekend. Schaub was double-tough going back out there with the hurting shoulder. I was impressed.

    If anyone is interested, I have THREE authentic white Seth Payne jerseys...make me an offer. They are all Seth Payne sized, since they are actually Seth Payne jerseys. Long story how I got them...

    Fan Attic carries them (but was out of #80). Fan Attics, Academies, and Foot Locker are VERY low on jersey stock except reds (most got more in for Battle Red Day).

    2 hours running around last night in rainy rush hour to find a (non-red) #80 jersey, getting up at 5:40 and in line by 6 AM, no autograph. Apparently 4:30 AM was the magic cut off time (8-9 appearnace).

    Willowbrook mall had several a few years back. It was a sports store but I do not know exactly what the name was.

    Last year I got there at 7:15 and got one, guess his popularity grew, lol.

    But FYI, don't buy a battle red to have it signed, because they will sign the white numbers, and markers bleed on screen printing.
