Reebok NFL Football Authentic Jersey Buyer's Guide

These vary in price from $180 to $300, depending on the team. The more detailed and complex the jersey, the more expensive it is. For a better idea of what this means, compare the Colts and the Jaguars jerseys. The Colts use 1-layer name and numbers, and have 2 colors on their uniform. The Jaguars use 3-layer name and numbers, and have 4 colors on their uniform.
Authentic Jerseys are sized 48-50-52-54-56. Size 48=M, 50=L, 52=XL, 54=XXL, 56=XXXL
Player name and numbers
For the player's name, all teams use a Nameplate. This means that the letters are sewn onto a piece of fabric, and then that fabric is sewn onto the jersey. The nameplate fabric is an exact match to the body of the jersey. Some teams use 1-layer letters, while others use 2-layer or 3-layer. Each layer or color is 1 piece of twill, which is stitched on top of the next layer. Generally the more layers, the more expensive the jersey.

Patches and Options
Some jerseys have a logo patch on their sleeve to commemorate certain events or milestones. These include Team Anniversaries, First Year in new stadium, Memorials and many others. Unfortunately, these are usually only for the players' on-field jerseys, and are very rarely available to the public. Unless noted, we do not offer these patches for sale with jerseys.
