Re: insane prices for authentics
The NFL is very careful about their jerseys. I used to work at a screen printing shop and we'd hear about other shops. One person from my shop went to a convention and met someone who did nothing but NFL jerseys. Basicly the NFL sent people to the factory to watch them make them to make sure people weren't taking them. Every employee got 1 of every jersey to keep them from wanting to steal too much, but still (wish I could have worked there). They watched like a hawk. From what he said, at least this particular factory, burned the screw ups. To keep the market from getting inflated with cheap slightly irregular jerseys.
Best. Player. Available.
