There isn't any AFL inside the collar, the jock tag logos are too small- that border seems very thin. No puma template stitching on the front that covers the left hand corner of the sash
Saw a NQ Cowboys Jersey with the same "Sports Performance" tag on ebay a couple of hours ago, took me a bit to realise it was a fake with the material being wrong but looked spot on

"Has genuine 'Russell Athletic' collar tags, neck tape, and knitted arm and neck bands."
So they nicked the innards off a Russel Athletic jumper and stitched them inside the fake.

The most interesting part of this is the ribbed collar & cuffs, which is almost impossible to replicate nowadays for one-off replicas.

Are we certain this is a fake and not a pre-production sample or a misprint?

Up for sale is a replica Brisbane Lions Heritage Jumper...Replica of the 'Bears' inspired jumper ...Very rare exact replica jumper...
Well they make no secret of it that it's a replica, here's Jono Browns PI for comparison
I see a thicker stroke on the RA logo, different shades of blue on the Heritage Round logo and AAPT logo while the replica share the same shade for both.

Plus the same seller is selling a replica 07 Eagles heritage jumper. I recall there being one of those (probably the same one) and fake Nike Port heritage jumpers

Yep found the listings and it's from the same seller, Plus they've sold 6 fake Dustin Martin 2020 Grand Final Tigers jumpers ranging from $152 - $440 plus a 2017 GF Tigers fake for $840

Must be someone who works in the industry who is making these, only explanation I can think of. But even then I don’t have access to make anything like this.

In all honesty, I’m jealous, I’d love to make old-school fakes at this level of detail.

The giveaway that this is a fake is the Mickey Mouse head missing the right angle cutout in the corner

Found these bad boys on Depop at a much higher price than they’re worth - big yikes dog.

Like, if you’re going to go to all the effort of getting everything 99% identical, surely you can get the AFL logo and number font right.
