Gifting Custom Personalized NFL Jerseys

What's the best gift for a die hard football fan?

Giving the perfect gift to an NFL fan isn't as easy it appears to be. You can, literally, find hundreds of products featuring their favorite teams and players. With so many options out there, how do you decide?

One great option is gifting personalized NFL jerseys. A personalized jersey is a universal gift any fan will love, from dad to grandpa. The great thing about personalized jerseys is you can customize the name and number of the jersey to suit your needs. Take dad's old high school football number and put it on his favorite team's jersey.

A young boy will be in awe seeing his name on the back of his favorite team's uniform.

The team, name, and number are up to you and you can make your favorite NFL fan's day by giving them an NFL personalized jersey.

Different types of NFL football jerseys

The choice of jerseys doesn't stop with the team, name, and number. You can also decide on the quality of the jersey. Most jerseys come in four different styles – authentic, premier, replica and retro.

  • An authentic jersey are the same exact jerseys that the players wear on the field. Featuring heavy fabric and sewn on graphics these jerseys are for true hardcore fan.
  • Premier jerseys are made with less heavy fabric then authentic but still feature sewn on graphics.
  • Replica jerseys feature the same graphics as a premier jersey but are screen printed. The replica jersey is for the budget minded gift giver.
  • Retro, or throwback jerseys are the same quality as premier and authentic but feature vintage graphics. The retro jerseys are great for older fans who have followed their team their whole lives.

@Big Chris, I don't know where to get his jersey, but I love that guy. He's one of my favorite running backs and went to a college local to where I live. I particularly like how they made him a beast in Tecmo Bowl. I'm thinking at that this time, a personalized jersey with his name and number is the best way to go. Also, on eBay, there are listings for his jerseys. Check it out: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=okoye+chiefs+jers...
