Authentic vs Swingman vs Replica Jerseys….

How the NBA defines the three categories of jerseys available for retail:

Authentic

The authentic jersey features the same fabrications and embellishments worn by players on-court but offered in regular apparel sizing.

Swingman

The swingman jersey includes nearly all the same visuals as an authentic jersey but integrates a consistent performance mesh fabrication and one layer twill wordmark, name and number applications.

Replica

The replica jersey is a screen-printed derivation of the jersey that highlights basic inserts and design elements.

    Love the blog, I have a bunch of so-called “authentic Champion jerseys” Can you provide information for these as what you have provided for the Champion replicas?

      I’ll address Authentics at some point (only the players that were sold at a retail level, not Procuts or game used)…but not until I finally finish the galleries for the replicas.
