Well, you can get a Nike Game jersey for “only” $100, but if you want something that’ll last for years without resorting to dry cleaning, it’s $150 for the Nike Limited.
But if you want an NFL jersey just like the pros wear, the Nike Elite will cost you 300 bucks, which is about what you’d pay for this Ralph Lauren suit.
So while you might luck out and get a well-made knockoff, there’s a good chance that you could end up with a garment that will fall apart after a few wash cycles.
But if you’re willing to compromise, there are in fact ways to…
1. Buy the former jersey of a player that’s switched teams. Nothing says discount like an old player on a new team. This especially works if player trumps team - i.e., a player whose stature & reputation is more renowned than the teams he’s played for.
Here are 2 prime examples:
When is this not a good idea? Even though a Darrelle Revis Patriots Game Jersey is 55% cheaper than his current team’s version, as a Jets fan I can tell you that wearing any Patriots jersey to MetLife Stadium would be a huge mistake.
2. Get a youth jersey. Seriously. Youth jerseys cost about 25% less, and the differences between a youth XL and an adult large are quite are minimal, at least as far as chest measurements go. While the 1-3 inch difference in length makes this a limited option for most men, budget-conscious women should take advantage.
Boys youth sizes L & XL can accommodate most large women and are 21% cheaper, while girls L and XL youth jerseys fit most adult women that wear small or medium, and they cost 31% less.
3. Other brands/older jerseys. There are 3 other brands of cheap NFL authentic jerseys that cost less than Nike, each with different price ranges and drawbacks.
4. Rent a jersey. That’s right - thanks to Rep the Squad, you can now rent authentic NFL jerseys cheap - $19.95 a month for adults, $16.95 for youths.
Will you save money? That depends - if you rent a Mitchell and Ness, which typically go for $150 & up, then yes. Nike Game jerseys retail for $100 so a 5-month rental is a push. Anything less than that and you’ll save.
