    Hi all. Ebay are our partners in this forum, but please beware fake auctions. As collectors, we trust you know what you are looking for. But it is our responsibility to point out that there are folks on eBay who try to pass along counterfeits.

    You can always buy authentic jerseys and gear at the BigSoccer Shop.

    I agree. I bought a really bad fake jersey and I wish I had just saved the $30. I also bought some cheap sunglasses recently and I hated them.

    What I would recommend is making sure you spend a lot of time reviewing the profile of the seller; look through all the comments as well. Secondly, if you're going to purchase glasses or sunglasses online, you should buy they at www.eyeglasses.com; don't purchase them at ebay. I did and it was not a good idea.

    This is by far the best site I have used. If you use my invitation code you get $5 off your first purchase.

    www.bestcheapsoccer.com is the site I used. It by far has the best looking jerseys for the best price. They have hourly 9.99 deals which I have bought a few on. These look about as close as you are going to get to the real thing. But for $10 and free shipping its well worth the try. If you use my link you get $5 off your first purchase.

    So a good quality jersey for $5... I believe that is well worth a shot.

    Use common sense when buying "authentic" from Ebay. Sometimes the pictures are authentic but the product that comes to you is fake. Never buy from Asia and if the price is too good it is probably fake. These are my rules

    By fakes are we talking Asian knock-offs that don't have say the Adidas, Nike, etc branding? As some fakes have this. Or are we talking of personalized replica shirts or even player issue that are being sold off as match worn?

    I know this is not an EBay question, but has anyone ever purchased from https://www.fifahipsoccer.net. I want to purchase a Toronto FC jersey, but I have reservations. Looking at the site, they are from North Carolina, but their prices are all in pounds sterling. Prices are good, just want to know if they are ligit. Just don't want to spend $50-$85 on a jersey.

    if you really want to make sure you are getting something legit buy from the MLS shop but you are looking at about $100 for an official replica. Even if purchasing a shirt from a UK club the standard cost for a current season shirt is about 45GBP

    Hi! We hope it's okay if we present our platform United Charity here - we're not Ebay, but a German charity auction platform and we often get original jerseys, shoes and stuff directly from football players and clubs. All proceeds go without any deductions to different children's aid projects in Germany and worldwide (for example children's clinics, hospices, educational projects, research projects ...).

    There is a clear focus on German teams as the German clubs know and contact us, but we also get some international items as well (from Toni Kroos & Real Madrid, Jorginho, PSG ...).

    If the post is not wanted here, we're sorry - just let us know.

    Ok, I'm not paying the MLS Store that type of money. The jerseys are ridiculously priced. You can get an Aaron Rodgers Packers jersey with name for $100 while an MLS replica jersey with a name is $115. $115 for a replica jersey is outrageous. If that was not bad enough authentic jerseys are $150. MLS jerseys are some of the most expensive jerseys in sports to purchase. That is why I look other places for deals on MLS

    Actually they aren’t. MLB customized (with name) are $125. NHL are $199. NFL $149. Those are not the authentics.
