I almost didn't have it, kept clicking 48 and I guess someone dropped it form their cart because it somehow came back in stock, so I had to checkout with the quickness

Hell yeah, awesome quality man...

Few days ago I'd asked a LC here because of so many fakes... while I'd already closed the deal lol

Pretty sure of it; and $100 is quite a fair price compared to $620 J4TW's sale :rollin

Alright, I have to make a correction about the Hawks info if anyone cares. Hawks "authentics" from the Hawks store, DO NOT come with mesh numbers. So neither would the customs. The guy I spoke to on the phone yesterday seemed like he really knew the difference between mesh and twill, but today I got my Korver jersey and it has twill. So I'll be returning it. It has an NBAstore.com tag on it as well.

I also received my Kobe away from Lakerstore.com. It does have mesh-so that's good. It also has an NBAstore.com tag on it, which is kinda weird since I always thought that meant twill numbers. Oh well.

So there's that if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the info about your Kobe.

It seems as though unless you order a player Authentic versus a custom Authentic of that player then you're not going to get mesh numbers! Don't they charge the same price though regardless?!

Well, I don't think the Lakers store does customs anyway. But yea, as far as I know, there are no customs that come with mesh.  I know the Lakerstore.com and Clippersstore.com are both ran by the same company, So the Clippers store does mesh as well.  

 

i bought my Kobe on sale for $177. No way I was paying $354.

Here is some information straight from the HawksStore.com regarding mesh numbers. The guy there is great and even emailed the head of NBA Retail to get clarification on mesh numbers.  

 

"The clarification that I received is authentic jerseys made by Adidas are mesh if the order meets a certain minimum which can range from many hundreds to thousands.  We typically don’t order those quantities so that is why we have twill numbers.   Many vendors – including us – also buy blank stock then send off to personalization companies to sew on player name and numbers, this allows more flexibility with inventory.  This means we can order 1000 blanks and make 100 of 10 different guys vs. having 1000 of one player.  The personalization companies do not offer mesh numbers.  That is why many vendors could have a mixture or confusion."

 

So this is why teams like Boston, Miami, and LA have mesh numbers. They sell more jerseys than anyone else and are able to hit the min qtys.  I would think maybe the Bulls would be able to do this too, but they still have twill numbers.

Does this mean that buying a blank and having it sent off to EPS is as authentic/legit as if we were to buy something from NBAStore.com? Because NBAStore.com and other team sites pretty much are doing the Same Exact thing - buying blanks and sending them off to a company like EPS to put the player's name and number on.
post #13521 of 34447

Yea, pretty much.  But I'm not aware of anywhere that sells rev30 blanks.  I mean I haven't looked since I don't want any but I've just never seen them available outside some on eBay.  

 

I do know that if you know people at Adidas, you can get mesh numbers of any player.  I've seen guys like Nick Depaula post random players jerseys, in his size and with mesh numbers. So it's possible. if you know the right people like I'm sure he does.

Has anyone on here bought a Rev 30 for retail? Lol

Thats cool. Yea, since no where does mesh number customization (except Cosbys in NYC for Knicks only), I've never been interested in the blanks myself.  But if you don't mind twill numbers blanks are the way to go I think.

Not me. But if retail was lower then maybe some of these teams could hit the required minimum qtys for mesh numbers.  Lakers/Clippers retail is $354 which is ridiculous.

Smh I did 1 time. I got that all white lebron jersey from the miami heat shop, and the shorts too. So it was a double retail whammy. That all white uniform was hard to find at that time and I really like it. It's probably one of my favorite uniforms. I also want that all black heat uniform but its long gone.

It can always be worth checking with Cosby's for other teams besides Knicks. Back when I had a blank rev 30 Blazers alternate I was looking to customize, I asked them if they could do Blazers mesh numbers as well and they replied they had done "some" Blazers in 2012 (whatever that means) and they'd look into it - in the end they only had the back numbers on file (for the red alternate) so they could have only done one side... :\

Didn't get any luck finding out if they could do any other teams with their current set up but it doesn't hurt to ask.

 

Also, as far as I know EPS only use regular twill - as opposed to the usual 'fake mesh' twill, which doesn't look good anyway IMO.

 

This is what my rev 30 Aldridge done by EPS looks like:

Good point. I have just read where Knicks are the only ones they do now but it wouldn't hurt to call.  Maybe I'll do that tomorrow.

regular twill>>>> the crap twill they are using now

I pretty much had customizing pre Rev30 jerseys in mind anyway. Cosign twill > mesh. There's just something that scream out quality when you feel those twill letters and numbers.

Now I'm on my hunt for preRev30 blanks and customize my favorite players.
