Sorry if this was posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find it so I figured I'd give this a shot with my being an out-of-towner and all. I read somewhere that the Reds were having a booth setup that personalized Jerseys with name and number in about 20 minutes. Anybody know anything about this?

From the Enquirer (http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070331/LIFE/703310328):

The shirt off their backs

You could be in a Reds uniform in no time - your name lettered on back of the jersey and everything. This year, a new heat-application process allows the jerseys to be customized in minutes, yet the letters still look as if they've been arduously stitched on.

The new jersey lettering system works so well, the Reds plan to use it for players, says Don Dierig, general manager of SportsService at Great American Ball Park. He saw the system demonstrated at a Las Vegas trade show last year, and brought it home to Cincinnati.

Fans will be able to buy the customized jerseys during games at a memorabilia stand in Section 119 at the Gap on the north side of GAPB. Dierig says the jerseys should be ready within 20 minutes after ordering. Customized replica jerseys cost $175 for adult sizes and $125 for children. Authentic jerseys cost $325.The Reds open the season at 2:10 p.m. Monday against the Chicago Cubs.

175 is nuts, I'll take my chances finding a Hamilton Jersey at the Majestic Team Shop.

As of 2 weeks ago, there were no Hamilton Jerseys in the Team Shop. Also, the prices in the team shop are the same as listed above. However, I did find several vendors outside the ballpark selling Hamilton replicas for $75.

Like Doug said, a ton of quality.

I have one authentic jersey and a couple of replicas, and the quality difference really stands out when you compare them side-by-side. If you're really trying to contemplate the difference between buying an authentic and buying a replica, my suggestion is to find a place that carries them both and compare them side-by-side.

Of course, also take into consideration if you're planning on wearing any jersey you buy. It feels great to wear an authentic jersey, but use and the good ole washing machine will tear it up quite a bit. If I want to try to get a jersey signed and framed, I'll go the authentic route. If I plan on wearing it to games repeatedly, I'll just take the replica.
