    When it says "Silicone printed graphics" does that mean the numbers are that hard plastic?

    All my jerseys are authentic sewn and stitched, I hate screen printed, But I wouldn't mind if it was the hard plastic. thanks for any answers

    There are 3 levels of the new jerseys made by Nike: The "Game" jersey (similar to Reebok Replica), the "Limited" jersey (Premiere), and the "Elite" jersey (Authentic).

    The Limited are not available yet, nor are the Powder Blues (which is what I'm waiting to buy). They are only taking pre-orders for the game and elite jerseys right now. See (and read) the differences here:

    Once the Chargers store @ the Q has some in stock I plan on going to see the differences first hand. I'll be sure to take and post pics as well.

    They aren't
    Features
    • 100% recycled polyester
    • NFLĀ® jersey
    • Screenprinted player name and number
    • Tailored fit designed for movement
    • No-tag neck label offers clean comfort
    • Strategic ventilation for breathability
    • Woven jock tag at front lower left
    • TPU shield at V-neck

    I think I will likely stick with my Reebok jersey for a while

    Which is why I highlighted the part in the post I was replying to where he said "and the 99.00 one. Which doesn't look like sewn on."

    The $99 "Game" jersey has screen printed numbers. "Silicone printed graphics" is just a fancy way to say it.

    The PBs are going to look stunning with the new material Nike uses, just look @ the Titans jersey. It makes me sad they aren't our primary.

    Not sure if I'm down with the Nike jerseys yet, still digging my Reebok one to be honest.

    Silicone ink is the same as standard plastisol ink. Only difference is it is a little softer and doesn't have plastic.
    Nike is making a big push to switch over to this style ink; others will soon follow. Prints about the same less likely to crack.
    Hope the bolts put together a blue and yellow 80's uni; that would be awesome.
