That's my biggest problem with the swatches. Topps and Panini use retail versions instead of player versions for the cards.

In a Twitter conversation with Topps about Russell Wilson having the wrong swatches in their cards, their reply was they couldn't get ahold of any "Nike Elite" jerseys. So basically, they admitted to using retail replica jerseys as their "authentic" memorabilia.

I don't understand why there isn't a bigger backlash in the hobby.
