Rising demand for authentic Winnipeg Jets gear and a still non-existent supply has led to quite a market for impostors. While the team’s official store and website have hats and t-shirts for sale, fans have been getting their Jets jersey fix via sites like kijiji.ca and alibaba.com. The only problem is that the sweaters that fans have been purchasing online are counterfeit.

Scott Brown of True North Sports & Entertainment on knock off Jets gear, via CTV Winnipeg:

“The jerseys haven’t been created, they haven’t been mass-produced, they aren’t available to anyone yet. So anyone who is telling you you can buy a jersey online is telling you something that’s not true.”

True North has said that the new jerseys will be unveiled in a couple of weeks, with retailers having to wait another week or two to begin selling them. You can bet on much more authentic counterfeit Jets jerseys flooding the market once the new design is released. Really, though, everyone who’s anyone will just wear the classic Jets sweaters… amirght?
