    That seller has a ton of crazy patches, but all of them seem to have been numbered consistently with nice patches. Also have a few other nice Steelers patches.

    Didnt DLP start putting "name-plate" in the descriptions near the patches though?

    I would lean towards saying they are legit

    When you have that kind of feeling about a card, why even consider it? That one second fleeting thought of "is it fake?" is more than enough for me to stay away. You should listen to your intuition.

    They're both fake IMO.

    Let's start with the Parker. The Steelers logo is made with a solid white circular patch and then the 3 "diamonds" and STEELERS in stitched into the white patch. This Parker is made up of all stitching = FAKE!!!

    The Greene patch is also fake IMO. Gridiron Gear always puts either "team logo" or "jersey number" or "nameplate" on their cards, this Greene (and the Parker) don't say that, they both just say jersey-prime. Also, the yellow letters the Steelers use are a deeper colored yellow.

    I would stay away from both of these!!!

    Yeah Tim is right. If it was even wron I would say yeas to the Parker for on most evenst hey use replicas. Being game worn that parker is not possiable to be real.

    Concur on point 2 as well

    Good points, if you examine the jersey material from the Greene patch, it looks like its a modern jersey, the Steelers jerseys back in the day were made of a totally different fabric back in the day. The jersey material in the card posted in the link looks like Nylon where the older jerseys are woven cotton or a combination of materials.

    To get a better feel for what I'm saying, below is a link to a Terry Bradshaw gamer, you can see in the closeup of the tag that the jersey material is more woven than todays jerseys.
