I dont think that jersey is the Elite version. It's a knockoff of the Game version, which is the replica that retails for $100. Check out the collar. too thin. Also, the Elite version has different fabric, like in square patches, this one doesn't. Also, I believe the Elite version's sizing is in numbers, while the cheaper Game version is in S/M/L, as is this one. Also, the Game Version is not stitched for sure, not sure about the others, but i dont think they are either.
Ok. Yea, its not the "whatever the actually on the field" jersey is. I bought one from academy for 100 that is the screen print one. This one is the one above that with the stitched in numbers for 130 that some places sell. After reading the "other" thread about jerseys I kinda feel like a chump for paying retail when I could get a decent fake for 40.
I say good deal, yes you can spot real from fake when they are side by side but...
I mean...come on...
