    After polishing off a better part of one of these I can't.


    Truth be told I am not sure how many authentics I have as most of mine are gifts from family and friends.

    Do a search for "authentic jersey" and there are a number of threads to choose from...very valuable info there.

    look up the definitions of replica and authentic, kinda spells itself out


    replicas are fake unis that look like the real ones

    authentic are real ones like the players actually wear

    "Authentic" as they are called come in various styles from the "On Field" variety to cheaper knock-offs, but they all have sewn on name & numbers and can have sewn on logos as well.

    "Replica" jerseys are more in reference to the less expensive jerseys that have the name & numbers silkscreened on.

    I found that as long as the numbers and name are sewn on and look great, the difference is nil.

    I got a Peterson jersey a year ago on ebay from China that claimed to be authentic.
    I figured that they probably make them there so I took a skeptical shot...maybe some guy in the factory who needed some money might have lifted a few.
    Turns out it's the best jersey I've ever bought.

    Don't confuse a fake "authentic" with a replica.

    The replica jerseys are in the $75 price range, and have the name and numbers silk screened on.
    In the case of the Vikings, the side stripe is also very different.
    The "authentic" jerseys that they sell on eBay are very similar to the real authentic's, with name and numbers stitched on and the side paneling the same.

    EDIT:
    I see that Singer already had it right in his post.
