Default WTB: Authentic Baseball Jerseys

I am looking for a few people who go to various MLB stadiums who would be willing to pick me up an authentic jersey of player xxx at the stadium team store. I don't want to buy them from MLB.com as their prices are just insane. Preferably looking for people who have a partial or full season ticket package who will be able to get me certain players as opposed to those going to just one game in case they don't have the player or size I'm looking for that day. Also so that you'd be able to let me know a price before buying the jersey.

I am NOT in need of the following teams:

Red Sox
Yankees (boo)
Phillies
Mets

Any other team is fair game. Just let me know the team you go see, and I'll let you know what player I need/want.

Obviously I will PayPal you the $$$, and of course pay for shipping plus some extra for beer

Oh and I wear a size 48. I only want a size 48. Also I only want the authentic jerseys - NOT the replicas that they sell.

Thanks, I'll let you know. I'm not really a Mauer fan, and well, the Twins don't have much else

At the Twins Shop at Target Field, they actually do sell Mitchell & Ness Jerseys.

In some cases they are cheaper than the awful MLB.com prices.

I go to 45+ Jays games, but their prices are no better than online, unless you can find a coupon code.
I just bought an authentic from MLB.com.
Here, it would run me $350. From mlb.com I got it home for $246

That's what I was thinking.

Authentics are not cheap! And they get more expensive FAST depending on how many colors are in the design, piping, and sleeve patches.

The Yankees seem to have the cheapest Authentic Home Jerseys (Non Cool Base / One Logo Color) at $193.99. Teams like the Marlins run up into the $300 range.

Not always. I have gotten jerseys many times at Fenway, well the store across the street, for less than what they charge on MLB.com.

Plus, a lot of times the stores at the parks have a better selection than what they have online it seems.

Because across the street are more than likely 20$ knock offs.

No. Across the street is the team store with all the authentic jerseys and everything else in it. Thanks though.

If you search for a discount code for MLB.com they do exist. I was able to find 20% off before so the prices were not that bad. I thought that the jerseys at the ballpark were very high as well? Good luck.

I don't know if you have a Bob's Store in NJ, but up here I get all of my Red Sox stuff from there. Way cheaper than across the street from Fenway.

They are expensive. Authentic ones are expensive everywhere - from $175-$300+

Hey, buddy - not the best squad, but I go to Padres games.

Great thread. I was actually interested in purchasing an Ellsbury blue alternate jersey, size 48. What do they run at your store? I think on MLB, the 2012 jersey of his with the 100 anniversary patch is like $225. Insane!

I actually still have season tix to the Red Sox. My grandfather has them, but none of him, my dad or me live in Boston. We are never giving those up.

I live in NJ and have a partial season ticket plan at Fenway. Agreed, they will never be given up - until I buy full season tickets

I was in Petco last year, but never actually made it into the team store - do they sell the retro jerseys there? Yellow/Brown ones?

Pretty sure they do. I was there the other day, but didn't go into the store.

We may be able to help each other. PM me.

Would love to hear that price on the Ells.

If retro jerseys are what you're looking for, Mitchell and ness usually have a huge day after thanksgiving sale where everything is $100. I know it's a while away but I think that's as cheap as you'll ever find them

Thanks for the tip - not really looking for retro only or anything, just that there is really no current player on SD or MIN that I would want to drop $200 or so on
