Fake Bryce Harper Jerseys Seized in Philadelphia
According to The Patch, there were hundreds of fake jerseys seized, valued at over $40,000. Officials intercepted the shipments that actually came in six different shipments. They were coming from Hong Kong and going to NJ, PA and Delaware.
The jerseys are made with cheap and sometimes even flammable fabrics and since Bryce Harper's merchandise is in high demand, counterfeiters are trying to cash in! Not only are they flammable, but they take away from original manufacturers and their revenue. Officials have seized over 300 jerseys since opening day, which was only about a month ago. Customs and Border Protection will be keeping a close eye on the counterfeit market as it will most likely continue since the season has just begun.
Poor Bryce Harper! First, there was a shortage of his jerseys, now his counterfeit jerseys are being seized!
