  • Got the deal of the century when I snagged an Elite Wilson off eBay for $90 at the start of the season! Selller got it as a gift and it was too big for him (he probably wanted a Flynn jersey). On top of that, I snagged a Sherman Game jersey before Christmas for $50! The two best Hawk jerseys of the season for $140. :)

  • The main fit issue I have found is in the shoulders, the cut in the back of the shoulders is a bit small. The rest of the jersey fit is right on size for me (a large) but it is a bit tighter if I cross my arms, than the reebok.

  • Yep, the fit across the upper chest and shoulders is a little tight, I was a large in reebok but am XL in Nike. ....and yes the Nike ones do hold the heat in better.

  • what color is good. Now all hawk colors are, but blue seems to be more popular than white. And then there is the alternative what do you guys think?

    I love blue too problem is, its most popular and most likely to be sold out. Now on NFL proshop the size S is avaliable for the alternative jersey. Thats the only size I can fit in. White and blue are still out.

  • first one i bought was a limited 12 fan.. gf got me a basic russell wilson for christmas.. now i love that the limited is stitched numbers and name.. but thing about it is the flywire is super awkward in the neck and it doesn't fit as comfortably as the basic jersey does.. most of us dont have shoulders the size of shoulder pads so the flywire in the neck is really unecessary and uncomfortable. my 2 cents.

  • I own a wolf grey elite earl tomas, and a limited blue Earl Thomas. I prefer the fit of the of the limited as it fits more like a regular shirt, but it is made of polyester, so the quality of the material is not the same as the elite. The elite feels heavier and is sturdier, but it looks like it is made to be worn with shoulderpads or something.

    When i ordered the elite, i wanted to return it because of the fit, but NFL shop screwed up on my bill several times and they actually let me keep the jersey for free to make it up to me. I ordered the limited jersey afterwards, and needless to say, i am happy to have both. I would definately pay the extra $30 for the limited over the game jersey however.

    I would also appreciate this info.

    Are they even more fitted than the $100? I'm 6-4 and about 185lbs. Issue I always have is - too big, too long. Would like a more fitted jersey. Tried a $100 jersey a few weeks ago and it was a great fit, but still too long.

  • Game is $100, limited is $130 and elite is $250. I am 5'11 185, and i ordered a size 40 on the elite, smallest they have, and a large for the limited. The elite jersey's are longer than the limited one's as well.

  • NFL proshop only sells game. I think its more worth going for limited if it feels okay versus the game. Otherwise that elite may hurt my pocketbook. Guess I have to go try one on.

    When these counterfeit shops use stock photos taken from legit sites, the easiest way to tell is to look at their "Contact Us" and "FAQ" pages. If they only have an email address as the only way to contact them, it's fake.

    I was thinking of getting a Russel Wilson Jersey. He will be our qb for the next 10 years and give us a shot at the super bowl every season.

    Love the Hawks and while I do not post most of the time. I just wanted to get your opinion on what jersey to get.

    Looks like the Game Wilson is available.

  • Careful with the lower-end 'game'. The customized 'Beast Mode' blue jersey I received as a gift had a non-neon green outlining the numbers. I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I thought that was poor quality control as the outline is supposed to be as bright as the shoulder colors. Any problems like this with Limited or Elite jerseys?

  • Authentic is the way to go...but the Limited is awesome too...especially if you wear a L and above...the reason I say that is the numbers are much bigger on sizes above M. I wear a M and if the numbers were big like the larger sizes I would be happier cause it looks real close to the authentic.

    Yeah, I've got a home Wilson and a road Sherman, both "Game" level.

    They both look sharp and high-quality. Much better than the entry-level stuff Reebok trotted out.

    I'd love to get a look at a "Limited" though. I was hoping maybe to get a customized Limited in Wolf Grey at some point.

    You think the customization process dulled the number outline? I guess, since they probably start with an entirely blank jersey.

    I've got both a Game and Elite but I have tried on the Limited. It's easily worth the extra $35 because the numbers are stiched on unlike the Game. Honestly, a guy couldn't go wrong with any one of the choices.

  • I have been getting jerseys for a couple of years on a site younfl.org It is overseas. the jerseys are AWESOME stitched lettering, great quality. You can not tell the difference. Here is the best part...I bought a Thomas Jersey this fall for $28.99 plus shipping (25.00). I have bought numerous jerseys there. Check it out... It beats paying NFL.org prices for teh same jersey

    Just received my Elite Wilson from nfl's shop. I have a limited as well (12) and the elite really is something when you compare the two. The deal is paying for a custom jersey that they'll set Wilson #3 on. Otherwise, you're correct, they do not just have elite Wilson jerseys.

  • I type this as my lady snoozes right behind me, but her 'game' Sherman is in the mail and will arrive Friday, just in time for her Saturday birthday. I tried on a jersey at the mall to get the size of it and ended up ordering an XL 'game' Wilson for me too. I'm 6'2" about 195 lbs, and damn it looked sweet on me. I had a 15% birthday discount from NFL.com show up in my email. Probably through my fantasy football account. These will be our first jerseys, aside from the assortment of baggy Puma jerseys we collected at the huge tent sale at Seahawk Stadium before the 2002 season (Chad Brown, Shawn Springs, Alexander, etc.) I'm so psyched for us to wear these new ones all through the off season and beyond!

    I first tried on a Large and found this to be true. The cut was nice and the jersey shape looked good, but movement was limited. Then I tried the XL, and perfection. The cut was still nice, not baggy at all, and I could move my arms freely any which way.

    I emailed nflshop.com and fanatics.com back at the beginning of the month to ask when they would get stock, but they both said they had no estimates. I finally got tired of waiting and went the custom-elite route. Took a while (ordered 1/4/13) but it arrived today and it looks awesome!
