I finally saw an Elite Vapor Untouchable, a black Derek Carr to be specific, at The Raider Image on Universal City Walk on Saturday evening and it's better than the previous Elite authentic jerseys. I liked the sleeves with the banded elastic similar to how the players wear them. I also liked the shorter cut of the sleeves as opposed to the longer cut and wide open sleeves of the previous authentic Elite. I just liked the tighter and shorter fit of the sleeves overall.

Anyone familiar with authentic Raiders jerseys? Is there black layering underneath the traditional silver numbers on the jerseys the players wear now? The black Raiders jerseys historically have only silver numbers without a black colored layer underneath. I swear last season I saw the on-field black Raiders jerseys have black layering underneath the silver numbers on TV and photos. But the retail version had just the silver numbers without the black layering underneath. So what's accurate?

Someone please elaborate for me.

Good question. You're right. They did switch last year to two-layer lettering but I assumed they must've just gone back to one layer this year.

I believe someone explained in here that the black lettering is only on the game issued jerseys for durability. You won’t see them on retail elites.

Thanks you 2 gentlemen for trying to theorize for me. I'm contemplating getting a black Carr Vapor Untouchable jersey. I know I obviously won't get the same size and cut as Carr's jersey as it's tailored for his size and body but at least I would want the stitching details to be accurate.

And does anyone think the current authentic Nike NFL jerseys' font sizes of the letters and numbers accurate? Or are they inaccurate like how Reebok was notoriously terrible?

The current font sizes are accurate, IF they are pre-made and customized Directly from Nike. If it's customized by a third party it's a coin toss. And I'm not even sure if Nike "personalized" vapor elites are accurate. I'm waiting to see someone order so I can place one for the Vikings, too.

Thanks for clarifying. At least that means Nike has the accurate template for the font sizes. If any authentic jersey is customized by Exclusive Pro Sports, they're quite accurate with font sizes and details including edges. They're the ideal 3rd party.

And I just researched photos of Derek Carr online for this season and unfortunately the game jerseys are the 2-layer numbering. I can't believe they went away from the single layer silver numbers that were worn for decades. That's basically a deal breaker for me now.

Can I add to this by saying that different teams have different fonts and font sizing. I say this because I just sold a 49ers Vapor Elite jersey on ebay (was too big for me) and before I sold it an ebay member messaged me saying the nfl shop did a bad job on the name to which i replied it was the 49ers who have a smaller font. You can see it in this pic:

The custom elite 49ers jersey I got was really nice. Liked the material and fit of the Vapor. Annoyingly I want to rebuy it in my correct size but for some reason the 49ers Vapor elite has been out of stock for the last month.
