    This is the Vaporknit one and read the product description when you order. It should state if its Vaporknit “new” and aeroswift “old”

    Here are pics of both versions...

    The black jersey is this year’s Vaporknit (Tatum’s Statement Jersey from Celtics pro shop).

    The yellow jersey is last year’s Aeroswiff (Kuzma’s Icon jersey from Lakers team store).

    Lol. Yeah... :rolleyes makes it rarer? :D

    I also noticed on my custom Authentic Jerseys that I bought from Fanatics, the jerseys don’t have the “Length +2” tag. The length, however, appears to be the same - based on an eyeball test. Wondering if certain team blanks didn’t have that extra +2 tag (even though they’re all +2 length)?

    Regarding customized Nike authentics:

    The perforation is something that ALL the Major lettering companies can do. Fanatics does the online stuff on most the Sites. Teams/ stadiums often use a horrible company in Canada (Forgot the name). The difference with what you'll get direct from Nike and from a third party is the kind of twill used. Third parties will use regular tackle twill. Nike's twill is more matte with a bit of a cloth-like texture.

    **This info pertains to NFL authentics also**

    Thanks for the name. Yeah they're garbage smh. I wonder how they are getting so much work between all the major leagues.

    I peeped their website and came accross this in their Q and A:

    "11) How long does it take to complete a jersey?
    Depending on the style of jersey, once you have received proper training any style jersey can be completed in 5 to 10 minutes."

    No wonder!

    Btw, I got an email from Josh at EPS once. He had... "less than good things to say" about "certain lettering companies". He did tell me that if consumers want better letting from their stadiums/proshops/etc. they need to let the teams know. What's basically happening is the lettering sucks, but no one's complaining. Most consumers take it as is. That's why we had a lot of of the old Rev30 authentics with faux-mesh swingman numbers the last several years.

    They probably paid big bucks for in arena exclusivity. A big thing to do with it is they are the ones that invented / provide those lettering kiosks that churn out customs really quickly. High speed = bigger profits, they dgaf about the collector

    This is exactly right. Ive fought tooth and nail on my end to get them to use proper lettering. Badgered the raptors shop manager had them consult with team equipment manager. Cant do a thing about it. I think she said she had one other person complain about the lettering and it was a collector from the states that came up for all star
