I bought this hat from a seller called bengaltiger72 on ebay. There's a few things giving me a funny feeling about this one and was hoping one of you experts could give me your opinion. Spot any counterfeit indicators?

It didn't come with the authentic nintendo sticker under the brim, right? It's fake. Tell ebay and get a refund. There is a thread somewhere on here about fake nintendo hats on ebay.

Cap looks legit, Seller is from Japan which is good since the Nintendo License for New Era is only for Japan.

There is no chance it's real. We had a lengthy discussion on fake Nintendo hats about a year ago. These hats cost like $80 with shipping when they first released. Now a few years later this seller who has every style in every size of these Nintendo hats is selling them at a loss? No way. $50 is too cheap for these hats. Also they do not have the Nintendo sticker under the brim.

Here's what raised my suspicion:

1) The sticker was curling off the brim upon opening the box. I've never had a sticker off another New Era even be loose after years.

2) There is unfinished and sloppy stitching under the panel, not just one or two on the eyelets.

3) The KOOPA writing on the back is not level. The font goes at a downward angle from right to left.

4) The print under the bill looks cheap. The ink is bled on the goomba and is peeling off the spiny.

5) No newerajp or nintendo tag/sticker.


I contacted the ebay seller, bengaltiger72. He asked me to send it back and pay for shipping as his return policy stated but I told him I would not pay anything to send back counterfeit merchandise. I also sent him the pics from this post, and said I would contact ebay, paypal and my bank if he did not refund me. He refunded my money and let me keep the hat.

No harm, no foul. Just be aware people.

what you actually could do is post a negative feedback and warn someone else that he's selling fakes, I see a lot of noobs leaving him positive feedbacks ,that's not good

SO CAN I ASK What did you finally do ? No bad feedback for this guy ? Are they still on ebay? Did they give you full payment back?
