Where to buy authentic jerseys? Recently, there are a lot of topics about buying authentic jerseys. I have bought more than 20 jerseys myself. Because my size is hard to find, I have used a lot of channels to look for suitable jerseys in the past few years. Here I would like to give you some advice to buy authentic custom rugby jerseys.
1. Official Stores
First of all, the most secure but the most limited option is the official website.
This official website includes Nike’s official website as well as Nike’s official flagship stores on major e-commerce platforms. It’s definitely guaranteed to be authentic here. They are all purchased at the original price, with few discounts, but the color matching may not be complete. Oh, by the way, there are some official re-enacted jerseys, and Master Jordan has the most.
This method is the safest, but I have never bought it once…
2. Offline Stores
The second way is offline stores. The stores include the brand’s flagship store as well as outlet stores.
The flagship store is actually the same as the official website, with few discounts and guaranteed authenticity.
Ole’s discount stores have mostly jerseys that are not very good for sale, and some old jerseys. For example, after Nike became a sponsor of NBA jerseys, I often saw Adi jerseys discounted to 200RMB-300RMB in Ole. So you can try your luck, maybe you can find the treasure.
In fact, there is another kind of offline store, I temporarily call it a large high-end NBA department store. I personally only know one of this store, which is the NBA flagship store in Wangfujing, Beijing. Here you can not only buy normal jerseys, but also limited edition and replica extremely precious jerseys.
3. E-commerce Stores
The third one is E-commerce stores like Taobao.
In fact, like buying sneakers, this requires you to have a certain degree of discrimination. The easiest way to distinguish between genuine and fake is price.
According to my experience, if the price of an ordinary fan version jersey is as low as 450RMB or less, it is basically fake. Of course, except for some simple sizes that are unavailable.
Most of the jerseys in Taobao stores will be cheaper than those bought on the official website and physical stores, but some limited color matching is higher than the original price. In fact, it is the same as sneakers. You are like ordinary combat shoes. Taobao is cheaper than the official website, but Some limited-edition colors will be higher than the original price.
The advantage of Taobao over the official website is that there are more colors and more players.
Let me give you two examples: I want to buy a JR-Smith jersey. The official website will never have a jersey for this level of player. In addition, Nike’s current advertising version of the jersey is normally not available, but there are some comparison shops, they all bought directly from the United States, such as the pink Wade I wore last week.
So, if you are not sure whether the purchase is true or false, then go to the appraisal after the purchase.
4. Private Sellers
The fourth, in fact, is the most common way I personally buy jerseys. However, I don’t recommend this way to jersey beginner buyers.
Because of my personal reasons, I don’t particularly like the current jerseys. What I like to collect is some old jerseys, such as the Cavaliers 1.0 period James jerseys, the James national team clothes, and the old All-Star jerseys.
Private sellers generally sell second-hand jerseys, so it is more difficult to distinguish the authenticity and there is no guarantee at the same time. Therefore, I do not recommend beginners to buy them in this way.
5. Purchasing Agent
The last channel is a purchasing agent.
You can ask your friends in the United States to go to the local fan store or the online team store to buy it and help you bring it back to China. It’s OK. But the premise is that you have a friend in the United States.
All in all, for beginners, it is recommended to buy from official channels. If you have certain basic knowledge, you can choose to go to Taobao or even a private seller. Finally, if you have a friend in America, you can turn to your friend for help.
6. Recommend 6 Online Purchase Channels
As the famous classic football shirts website, Gouhai also has related posts. The types of jerseys here are the most abundant and the price is relatively reasonable. I bought a 9900 season Ginola here. This website supports credit cards. Those who don’t have a credit card can choose to buy them at their official Taobao store. (The specific method is to select the jersey and size you want to buy on the classic jersey website, and send the jersey link to the Taobao shop customer service, and he will help you calculate the specific price and postage.)

As a partner of Barcelona, Paris, Chelsea Asia Pacific official mall, this website is also a very good jersey purchasing website. It is full of jerseys, football, socks, POLO shirts, jackets, and the discounts in this shop are quite big. There are many off-season jerseys with great discounts, and you can find very good jerseys for the previous seasons at low prices. Recently this shop is engaged in Christmas activities, including buy 2 get 1 free and so on.
- Two football equipment forums
EZ Forum: http://bbs.enjoyz.com/forum-15-1.html
Ouou Forum: http://bbs.ouou.cn/thread-htm-fid-6-type-31.html
Because I am relatively fat, there are often no jerseys that I can wear on Taobao, and I have already received three jerseys in the trading area, all of which are quite cheap cabbage prices. I will share with you. Those who sell jerseys on these two forums generally have links to Taobao. The quality is generally better.
- Three international jersey websites
They are all relatively large websites, and the products are much more complete than EZ. I have not bought them at these three stores. The first two websites have Taobao purchasing agents. There are also shopping tutorials on the first two websites on the Ouou forum.
There are many jersey sellers on eBay. There are real and fake ones. It is recommended that you choose sellers from Germany and Eastern Europe, or those with higher feedback, a full range of jerseys, and the price is around 300 RMB. There are many classic light-board jerseys on eBay at the price of cabbage. You can buy them and then buy DIY classic printing. This is a more affordable way to collect them. For example, I recently collected Messi’s home light board jersey + DIY printing since his debut, which is very affordable.
The keywords of eBay search shirts are generally in the following form: “barcelona jersey L”. German sellers generally replace jersey with trikot.
Here are a few sellers who sell printing. The first two are from Hong Kong, and the third is from the UK. They are more reliable:
- Jersey trading platform on Chinese Weibo
Most of the domestic jersey collection transactions take place on Weibo. Just search for “jersey trading platform” on Weibo, there are about two or three platforms that are more reliable.
