    Shipping from China? Both are clearly fakes. The first doesn't carry a swoosh and the "COLORADO" and numbers are too "bubbly." The second, well, I don't even know where to start.

    Part of what I do for a living is stop people who sell this ****.

    The first says it's from the 90's. Don't think we had the swoosh yet, at least not in the early 90's.

    That number 35 is from around the Poncho Hodges era. I have a 23 from around that time.

    Still can't figure it out, but it is def authentic. It's a Nike basketball jersey but back then, the swoosh did not appear on the front of jerseys or shorts.

    But no one wore #35 in that era. And the football jersey is obviously a hack.

    Based on the number and the size, if it is real it would have to be a Shaun Vandiver jersey from 90-91. He was listed as 6-10 240lbs. The jersey is a size 52 with a +2 on length. When did the Nike contract start?

    The jersey is fake. Notice how high up on the eBay jersey the letters and numbers are when compared to Chauncey's jersey. And we didn't get that "trade dress" until well after 1991.
