    oh, meant to add this before. Probably not the right place, but this is the only place that I've been a little active in. I graduated with my MBA in December online from UND, so my wife and I finally made it out to Grand Forks in February before all this mess of 2020. My program notified the GF Herald and did this nice story: https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/education/4953511-From-Philly-to-NoDak-Recent-UND-grad-visits-North-Dakota-for-the-first-time We had a blast and can't wait to get back out there.

    Sorry to always ask questions about legitimacy, but I know the people in here are experts. Can you tell me if these are licensed Nike replicas or knockoffs? $140 each is fair for a legit replica, right? Thanks!

    Awesome finds. Thanks so much! I'm happy with the purchase. Anyone have any idea how much it would cost to get the name plate swapped for "CAULFIELD"? Conveniently that is my last name as it is for Judd Caulfield, though no relation as far as I know.

    Cool. Thanks. How about the year this jersey would have been from? Seems like there's a lot less on the women's jersey. Is it pretty close to what the women wore on the ice? Thanks again.

    I had been waiting for one of the women's style jerseys on eBay as I really like the cursive writing. Was happy to grab this in my size for $127. I'm finding it hard to find accurate past rosters, at least not with #21 Wilson on the team. Can someone let me know if this was a player or this was a custom one for a fan? Thanks.

    FYI, the last response to this was: " I don’t really know. It’s for fall 2019 that’s all I have. Sent from my iPhone" Presumably as mentioned, this person probably bought straight from Adidas and it was some sort of sample/trial. Happy enough for $45. We'll see what the actual jerseys look like eventually I guess.

    Thanks. If I've learned nothing else from this forum, it's definitely been that! I mentioned it above, but I typically vet the sellers by if their feedback and/or what else they've sold. It seems like the people selling counterfeit jerseys are primarily doing jerseys. Whereas other guys like this seem to be selling stuff that were legitimately made by the brand for a school. But @southpaw was able to give me a name for it "trial jersey" and "sample sale". So these items are sort of in that gray area in between.

    Thanks! so is this how a lot of this type of stuff winds up on eBay? you'll see the same sellers have a bunch of the same brand of stuff - be it Nike, Under Armour, Adidas, etc.

    so I messaged the seller: "Hi, Thanks so much for the jersey. I am really happy with it. I did have a question though. I know that the University of North Dakota is switching to Adidas for this year for ice hockey and none of the jerseys have yet been released (as far as I know). Do you work or sell Adidas products? was this a mockup created by Adidas for a potential North Dakota jersey? I was talking to my friend who is anxiously awaiting to see what the on-ice versions are going to look like next year. Thought you might know!Thanks so much!-Joe" His lengthy response: "Glad your happy with it! Sent from my iPhone" I tried another response. We'll see what he says: "Hi again, Yeah, it's great. Do you know the story for the jersey? Is this what Adidas is going to be making this year for the team or was this a concept piece as North Dakota transitions to Adidas? Thanks. -Joe" So I'm not sure how I feel about his response. I still think he's probably in the distribution line for Adidas or something and this was likely a concept piece that Adidas made for UND. OR he's a counterfeiter of Adidas stuff and doesn't want to admit to it? But he's got a lot of Arizona State and other Adidas items such as t-shirts, which I'm not sure are counterfeited like jerseys. I would guess that the margins are too slim on items like t-shirts to make it worthwhile to counterfeiters.

    Oh, and btw, they also have a youth version of the jersey in black for sale: https://www.ebay.com/itm/North-Dakota-Fighting-Hawks-Youth-Hockey-Jersey-Adidas/173938674595?hash=item287f8d8ba3:g:kS0AAOSwvrddCnC0

    No, I didn't ask. I suppose I could. I think I decided that it was probably a promo type thing based on the fact that they have a lot of Adidas and Mitchell & Ness (previously owned by Adidas) stuff that all seemed to be from a legitimate (possible overstock) type of line. I've seen a fair amount of other retailers getting these promotional type items, at least in more niche sports, like say lacrosse. You'll see some lacrosse stores get say an Under Armour lacrosse glove for Maryland, but their regular glove might be a different model. So it's a legitimate model, but necessarily what the team is wearing. It's a bit different with lacrosse as you won't see too many lacrosse jerseys for sale, so it's not quite an apples-to-apples comparison. I do recall seeing some Under Armour gear for University of Minnesota Duluth that looked very close to the stuff worn on the ice, but was slightly different. I'm not sure if promotional is the right word, but it's kind of like Under Armour creating a range of legitimate stuff for their teams, but only some of which will be mass produced/chosen by the school/team. Here is the seller's store: https://www.ebay.com/sch/setays13/m.html?item=183853365382&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 I'll shoot them a message to see if they'd give me a straight answer.

    And by attached, I meant I'll naturally forget and put it here. It lacks the Adidas part and is below vs. above, but the stitched in part seems comparable. I am by no means an expert on identifying counterfeits.

    Yeah, we'll see. I'm a little wary of how the Climalite part looks, but the tag area of the Parley one (legitimate purchased at Dick's Sporting Goods) isn't all that different looking. I attached that. (For the record, the parley is a 50, because I intend to wear that without pads and got a 52 in this one. The 52 fits slightly bigger as I would expect - though noticeably smaller than the CCM 52 UND I already have - but I think Adidas just sits smaller in general). For open hockey in Philadelphia (where I live and attend UND through the online MBA program), it's good enough for me for $45.

    (Take 2 - dunno why the pictures are coming in sideways and upside down, sorry.) I was the one that purchased that jersey on eBay. I put in an offer for $45 and they accept. I needed a white jersey for open hockey. Took a few extra pictures. I compared it to another Adidas jersey I have, though it's the Adidas Parley (recycled bottles) version of a Philadelphia Flyers jersey. It seems about the same. The tag that came on it makes me think of some other Under Armour stuff that I've seen that might have been mockups made for the school. So a legitimate product, but just a version that Adidas made as sort of a promotion or to give the school an options. Happy enough with a $45 jersey for open hockey. Even though it says authentic, there is no fight strap. It fits just like the 52 in the NHL version.
