PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Found on eBay under the title "prototype" selling for 500 bucks.
Never seen it before in my life....
Does it have the Oregon "wings" on the shoulders?
I think it's just a design, it does resemble them though. Overall a pretty cool look though
what kind of "authentic prototype" doesn't include the logo of the team?
edit - remember this thread? its a year old, and if you scroll down...the same jersey...scammers are good at what they do.
I'm going to go with a sweat shop in China like most Nike apparel.

I wish we would get something like them though. I like how It has more gray to it than most of the jerseys we have worn.

If it also came with 6 t-shirts, 4 hoodies, 4 hats, and 5 pairs of pants, I would pay 500 for that.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
I saw that a lot before last season's Pro-combats came out. I think its a knock off.
Flying high and looking down on that team up north
I bet there's nothing authenticating it. Anyone good with a sew machine could have made that.

Ive seen that up there a few times over the last few years. I dont think its a chinese knock off. It looks like a home version of the 2009 pro combat jerseys. The white jerseys that year had the nike flywire on the shoulders but it wasn't as obvious being a white jersey. Plus the fabric and fit don't match what the knockoffs have. Plus the ebay seller deals in higher quality stuff. Having collected buckeye game worn stuff for the past 15 years or so, I'd say this actually is what it says it is. A home prototype of the original pro combat uniforms from 2009.
That being said, $500 is an absurd price to pay.
These have been bouncing around for a while. Just keep an eye out if you really want one, you'll be able to get one for $75.
Not sure I would pay $500 for an "Authentic Prototype". Just tells me it was a prototype that ended up getting denied and they made a certain amount of them and are now trying like heck to get rid of them.
Not sure about the rest of the jersey but it sure looks like someone took a sewing machine and put those wings on there. I think it looks like crap! I can ruin a good jersey for $75 if I wanted too, not going to buy one who someone else ruined for $500!
not to mention, it better come with a signature and letter of authenticity for that price!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
Looks like a HS jersey. No Buckeye shield on the collar or any distinguishing marks? Negative.
The shoulders looks like the 'flywire' stuff that Nike has in a lot of their shoes.
The number on the back isn't anywhere near the same size as the one on the front.
Thanks for that. lol
It's called authentic because of the kind of jersey. Most jerseys you people wearing are replica jerseys. Authentic means that this is an actual football jersey. Other than that it does look like a prototype for us that Nike came up with back when their alternate jerseys had the flywire shoulder thing on them.
