Sigh..... ok in the jersey collecting hobby "authentic" is used in two forms...
1. Authentic as in exactly whats worn on ice as the players. Fight strap etc.
2. As in NOT a chinese EFFIN knockoff
I can not stand knockoffs. they pollute the hobby and look like GARBAGE. people who complain about the prices of jerseys to justify them buying knockoffs irk me. NO WHERE in your "constitutional rights" does it say that you have the right to own a jersey and shouldn't pay the MSRP. Dave Schultz is quite the hot cold kinda guy but one thing I agree with him is not signing Knockoffs. I applaud him on that. It PAINS me to walk into places like carls and elsewhere and see knockoffs with beautiful signatures on them and beautifully framed. But thats my opinion and everyones entitled to their own.
Your replica that you bought at Modells is fine and Dave would surely sign it. Carls is using the 2nd definition I listed above of Authentic.
Replicas are ok by me. I have MANY in my large collection. I hate reeboks customized replicas because they're complete crap quality and no where near correct in fonts and everything but thats a rant for a different day.
Any questions? lol

Kudos to Dave, I just took exception to the word "authentic".....As too me me it seems to be more an issue with NHLPA/NHL Officially Licensed Merchandise (the league and players being compensated through revenue) vs "Chinese EFFIN knockoffs" (no compensation to players or the league for sales)...
