Authentic Jerseys FAQ
How do I properly care for my jersey?
Taking care of your jersey is actually quite simple! Firstly, try to limit the number of times you wash it. One excellent strategy to shield it from odors is wearing an absorbent shirt underneath. Avoid just tossing it in a corner soaked in sweat; that's a fast track to bacterial growth central.
When it's time to clean it, here's your game plan: separate it from any items with zippers or Velcro™, as these can damage the fabric.
Next, turn it inside out to protect its shine and give it a cold wash to maintain its vibrant colors. Remember, no bleach or fabric softener, as they can be harsh on the fabric. Finally, when it comes to storing, either lay it flat or use a garment bag to keep it in top-notch condition. It's all about giving your jersey the love and care it deserves!
What are Authentic jerseys made from?
All Nike Authentic jerseys are crafted from 100% recycled polyester, showcasing their commitment to both quality and environmental sustainability.
Are the letters and numbers stitched onto the Authentic jerseys?
For some of the jerseys in our lineup, you'll find that every single letter is stitched onto the front, with the player's name and number stitched onto the back too - making it as real as it gets! But hold up, for some other jerseys, we only got the front letters stitched on. You might be thinking, "Why's that?"
Here's the deal: sometimes players get traded, and we don't want to be tossing perfectly good jerseys just because of a roster shake-up. So, we got a bit crafty! The names and numbers on the back are stitched together first, and then they're heat-pressed onto the jersey. This way, we keep things fresh and flexible!

What is the difference between Authentic and Swingman jerseys?
Authentic jerseys are crafted from premium materials similar to what players wear, featuring stitched-on details and a tailored fit, designed for high durability and detailed player-specific customizations. They come at a higher price point.
Swingman jerseys, on the other hand, are high-quality but more suited for casual wear, with heat-sealed or screen-printed details. They offer a more relaxed fit, are generally more affordable, and durable for everyday use, albeit with fewer player-specific details compared to authentic jerseys.
