Where to buy authentic Ncaa Jerseys?

By authentic, I literally mean the game models the players wear. I hate it when people say they are selling authentic, when what they are selling aren't the jerseys the players actually wear. I can find game worn jerseys on ebay, but is there no where that just sells new game model authentic jerseys with the cuffed arms and stretchy material? Thanks.

Re: Where to buy authentic Ncaa Jerseys?

Generally, no. They're extremely difficult to find. You have to remember that since most universities have the player's name on the back, selling souvenir authentic jerseys is a no-no as that would be profiting off of a player's likeness (against NCAA rules). Most companies, like Nike, don't bother to make the $250 authentic version of a jersey with only a player's number that will be there a couple of years available to the public, instead knowing that people would rather buy the new $50 one every time a team gets a new star player.

Here in Arkansas, I have seen a couple of fully stitched ones near campus that have simply omitted the player name on the back. I honestly don't own one and never examined one, but I would guess that they might be counterfeits. I do remember hearing about being able to order authentic customized jerseys before (so I could shell out $300 for one with #15 and customize it to say Mallett on the back), but I couldn't find it for the life of me just now. Generally game-worn is the way to go if you want a true jersey, though beware of counterfeits of those.

Maybe somebody else has an idea of where to find some.

Your best bet is Buying it from a school Bookstore.

Yeah Virginia Tech's bookstore doesn't have any that the players actually wear. I feel like you would have to contact the equipment manager to ask if you can purchase one. I've been to Penn State, Georgia Tech, and Purdue, and have never encountered an authentic football jersey. I figured they would be hard to find.

The one above is ok, but I wish there was a way to put a name on the back.

You won't find them for NCAA for the reason mashaddict stated earlier.
I know at the OU Bookstore they sell "stitched" like jerseys for $75.

I was able to get an Authentic Rutgers jersey '04 era.



It's pretty nice, I do wish we go back to the Block Font on our jerseys.

I thought the OU bookstore actually had authentic jerseys one year without the names on the back for well over $100.

I thought they looked stupid though because they had a huge slit in the side.

Anyway, I'm not really sure where to find them. I don't wear jerseys.
