hey everyone, just wondering if you guys could help me out. I won this Kesler jersey the other day and as soon as I saw it I was certain that it wasn't an authentic jersey. Can't really put my finger on it but something just seemed different about it (the letters just seem a bit fatter and closer together). What do you guys think?

pretty sure it's fake. the white stripes at the bottom should not be that fat. the letters also look a little bit different. decent fake though

edit: can i see the inside stitching? i'll be able to tell 100% by it if you take a picture

The stick in the rink logos look wrong, I can't be sure from the picture but they look like the classic ones rather than the modern stick in rink

Very fake. The Vancouver and the Kesler`s name and number don`t look like an authentic one.

absolutely fake.

You can try to pass it off as authentic to someone who can't distinguish between a legit and fake jersey and hopefully turn a profit :P

Yup, I'm pretty sure Kesler didn't wear this.

I would definitely return it.

Don't you feel embarrassed wearing a jersey that brutally fake? If it was a good fake, that would be a different story but this is obvious once you read the VANCOUVER on the front.

110% fake. Logo on the front and shoulders are both totally wrong. Different fonts, etc. On the back, it has "Reebok" not the reebok logo anymore (Unless it was purchased prior to this past season). Stitching is wrong. Different colored green, the white around the green is too thick. Guess that's what you get for a free raffle xD

Fake. There's no such thing as a "good fake". These are the worst looking and most obvious of fakes, but a fake is a fake is a fake.

Yeah, it's fake.

1. The blue is too dark.
2. The letters (in the word "Vancouver" particularly) are too bold and close together.

its a mens large and I am a girl and 5"3 so I will most likely just add it to my wall of Kesler ;)

Posted Image yes I am a bit obsessed with Kesler....
