Default Re: JO Sports sentencing?

FWIW I purchased a game worn Titans jersey that was easily photomatched from JO's "personal collection" - Robert had contacted me about it and I photomatched it myself (which I've never been able to do very well) easily.

While there's definitely crimes that have been committed (enough to plead guilty), I think he's under the microscope SO much right now that there's NO way anything that leaves that building is fake at this point.

I've purchased several things from them, and have never had any problems (I know, "spoken like a true investor"), but I hardly believe Terdell Sands' jersey is going to get tons of fake use and wear. If I were to believe that, I'm also betting money the moon is full every night, Santa Claus is alive and so is Elvis. Oh, and Tupac, too.

Well besides them faking game use on jerseys and losing what reputation they had yes, zero problems for you. But hey who cares about the people who got burnt as long as its not you right?

Most of their stuff is unwashed and easily photomatchable. With the FBI watching him and his sentence still pending do you really think JO is going to sell fake stuff at this point?
once shame on you, twice shame on me.

Sadly this thread is starting to shift back to "JO Sucks" vs. "JO is the greatest thing since sliced bread." Where you stand on it, I DO NOT CARE. Re-read the title of the thread - "JO Sports Sentencing?" - I think that's what we should focus on on this thread to eliminate further disagreement. Just my two pesos

Obviously there are going to be multiple opinions on the entire JO situation and to some extent ALL of them have some degree of validity.

Whether or not you purchase something from JO at this point is purely personal preference but I tend to agree with Preston. I think that anything that leaves his place of business at this point had better be absolutely genuine or he may find himself in even deeper trouble.

Jared has no one but himself to blame but the majority of their inventory was legit. In this business/hobby all it takes is one bad item to ruin one's reputation though and JO has no doubt, done that. It is a travesty that his business was/is completely destroyed by the very person who started it and JO has to live with that. That being said there are a number of items that JO is selling that are legit and are probably good bargains right about now.

Would I take Jared's word as golden-absolutely not but after doing my own extensive homework on an item I was interested in, and it checked out, I would consider buying it.

Always buying 49ers gamers and ALL 1994 49er GU items!
