First of all, I would like to state that, Replicas are not Fakes!. Replicas are one of the 3 jersey lines that Adidas/Reebok refer to their NBA Jerseys. The other two being Swingman and Authentic. Replicas are characterized by Rubber prints over the jerseys and were usually made by air cool mesh until the revo 30 era (SRP $49.99). Swingman on the other hand have cut outs for script fonts and numbers and have the details screen printed on these cut outs (SRP $79.99)and Finaly, Authentics are the exact same ones seen on the court, worn by NBA players themselves (SRP $299.99).
With that on the way, I now show you the Paul Pierce Adidas Replica Jersey.
With the average Filipino salary at 6-7,000php (120 US$) it is obvious that even the most basketball diehard middle class citizens are unable to settle for Authentic or Swingman Jerseys. That is why most officially released jerseys on local Adidas outlet stores replica. With then, it is still expensive for some and because of that, most of them resort to bootleg china made NBA jerseys branded as "Von Dutch" or "BTV Hardwood Classics" sold for 350 to 500 pesos (7 to 10 US$) at 168, Tutuban, greenhills and other bootleg hubs, Those are the Real Fakes.
The Jersey was released August of 2011 along with BG and Stat.
Ever since the brand introduced its revo 30 release for authentic and swingman, it has also changed how it released its replica jerseys. The ugly air cool mesh seen since the days when Champion was still the outfitter are now gone. It is now replaced by a climacool type of mesh. The rubber print is now Vinyl laser cut instead of the old Rubber printing. This gives the jersey a sturdier base for its print to hold on to and enables the print to last longer.
The Pic below compares the old Reebok replica PP34 jersey to its new counterpart.
Furthermore, the neck tag which sometimes causes itching at the nape area is replaced by a tag embedded at the collar area. This also holds true for its swingman and replica counterparts.
A good buy since orig NBA jerseys are scarce here, unless you consider the underground market.
