    Jersey Help

    Hi guys, I hope this is the right place to post this. My favorite jersey design of the raiders is the old school white with silver numbers and black name plate. The only one I can find on Raider Image to fit is the Tim Brown M&N. I loved Touchdown Timmy but it is hard to justify spending close to $300 with shipping for one jersey. With that said is there anywhere I can get a reebok one that isnt a fake from asia? Thanks

    Reebok have some throwbacks but I do not like them. They make them 'fake' by putting their logo on them. Plus Reebok is junk, imo. I have seen the Tim Brown one on the Raider Image online.

    I got a Desmond Bryant game worn thru josportsco which is the white throwback. It costed tho.

    IMO, if you are looking at this type of jersey you are going to pay $300 and up. If you find them cheaper, let me know cuz I would want some.

    Thanks. I was afraid of that. How is Mitchell and Ness quality? It won't hurt to bad to spend that much on it but I don't want it to be a pos either.

    Mitchell and Ness quality is excellent, I must say. It is a true, thicker jersey and true to the era of the player. I reckon they are better than the Reebok authentics actually. There was a thread here not so long ago about these jerseys. I think it was RaiderInNY that posted a lot of quality info on jerseys.

    Anyway, I rate the Mitchell and Ness and previous Nike authentic jerseys far and above Reebok. I also have a Bo Jackson "Sandknit" from the 80's. Now that was quality (pity it does not fit, lol).

    I have a bunch. I never spent much on mine but got a couple nice ones for Christmas over the years. Once is a Jeff George which passes for Lamonica half the time.

    I don't get bent up about what anyone wears, unlike Al, who did. He hated knockoffs. If you can afford to spend $300 go for it. If you can't, just wear black or white with whomever's name and number........or just black or white.

    I could never spend $300 for a jersey, hell no, even if I could afford it I wouldn't. The premier reebok throwback jerseys are good enough for me.

    I have a Mitchell and Ness Howie Long jersey and it's great, nice thick mesh material not the cheap stuff.... I know they are pricey but Im tired of searching for old school players
    and finding nothing but China Fakes.... especially the ones with the Raider shield patch on the front of the jersey, LOL... wtf?

    Can send you pics of the M&N one if you want... I like you was hesitant at first, and the online photos they show aren't really accurate, can't see up close.

    I just got my Howie long jersey an hour ago, Its a premier vintage collection series 1988 Howie Long replica, made by Rebok . The material is heavier than that of my Carson Palmer Rebok middle grade and the name and #s are sewn on and not screen printed. Im not an expert on jerseys, so if anybody can tell me whether its a good jersey for what I paid(59.95) I would appreciate it.

    No I got it through amazon, no bidding, just did an extended search and rummaged through all the affiliated sights until I found the deals I wanted.

    I'd suggest taking the 300-350 bucks and buy something else. It's your money and you're free to do with it as you please.

    I just suggest this as I've put a hold on my Raiders gear purchase just as this 'team' has put a hold on giving two sh!ts about 'excellence'. The holidays are usually the time for my wife to blow it up on Raider Image for my Christmas. Not this year, not a f-n chance.

    I already have a sh!t-ton of Raiders gear, so it's easy for me to say no. Do what you want.
