How Do I Tell If My Blackhawks Jersey Is a Fake?


It can be difficult to tell if a jersey is real or counterfeit. Counterfeit jerseys often look nearly identical to the "real" jersey and they cannot always be identified. It can be easier to tell if the jersey is real or fake based on where you bought it and how much it cost. Official jerseys have a consistent price point and knock offs will likely be far cheaper. Official Blackhawks jerseys also have a silver Reebok NHL tag located on the bottom left of the jersey.

  • Determine where the jersey is from. If you are ordering your Blackhawks jersey, you can find where the jersey is originating from. Any jerseys coming from Asia are likely fake. All Reebok NHL jerseys are made in Canada.

  • Check for official logos and trademarks. Authentic Blackhawks jerseys will have a silver tag at the bottom left of the jersey that says "Official Licensed Jersey." It will also have the NHL and Reebok logos.

  • Notice the color of your Blackhawks jersey. Compare your jersey to a picture of an authentic jersey. Counterfeit jerseys often cannot exactly replicate the colors, especially blues and reds.

  • Compare logos and numbers of your Blackhawks jersey with an authentic jersey. The Blackhawks logo can be difficult to imitate. Notice the sizing and spacing of the letters and numbers on your Blackhawks jersey. Counterfeit jerseys will often have larger or smaller letters or spacing than the authentic version.

  • Investigate patches and stitching on your Blackhawk jersey. Check the location of stitching around armpits and back of neck and compare, if you are able, to an authentic Blackhawks jersey. The NHL and Reebok trademarks on real jerseys are patches and not embroidery.
