After Cam Newton left the Carolina Panthers, his No.1 jersey reached the trash cans all around Charlotte, destined to be buried with his dab.

But now Cam is back, baby – and so are her swimsuits. On the day her return to Charlotte was announced, social media posts created a buzz about when it was time to grab a Cam swimsuit – before smart retailers pulled them off clearance for put them back on the shelf at full price.

A quick look from eBay shows Cam jerseys are priced under $ 4 and others are $ 150 (and everything in between). But how do you know if what you are buying is legitimate?

How to buy a Carolina Panthers jersey

We asked CharlotteFive’s Alex Cason for some jersey buying advice – he’s our team’s biggest Carolina Panthers fan.

Here’s what Cason says to look for when shopping for jerseys:

  • A stitched name and number are a good indicator of a more authentic jersey. The reasoning is that it costs more to create, so it’s less likely to be counterfeited, Cason said.
  • Make sure the blue is Panther Blue (otherwise you’ll stand out – and not in a good way – among the sea of ​​fans at Bank of America Stadium on game day).

Here are some sites you can trust when buying soccer jerseys:
