Too hard? Let our expert legit checkers have at look at your item:
Stadium Goods labels come in two formats:
The older Stadium Goods tag is the one that is taller vertically.
The newer one is the one that is wider horziontally.
We’ll look at both, one by one.
2.1 Older tag
Authentic: The genuine Stadium Goods label has thinner and less opaque text.
Fake: The counterfeit Stadium Goods label has thicker and more opaque text.
2.2. Newer tag
Authentic: Letters with no cracks or scratches.
Fake: Letters with noticeable cracks and scratches.
We’ll follow the same protocol from the last step.
First older, then newer.
3.1. Older tag
Less visible graphics.
Scratched “ATTENTION” text.
Less space between lines of text.
It also appears more textured.
More visible graphics.
Thicker “ATTENTION” text.
Does not reflect light.
More space between lines of text.
It lacks the texture seen on the authentic label.
3.2. Newer tag
Authentic: Maintains consistent spacing between its lines of text.
Fake: Has lines of text placed too close together.
This flaw is consistent in multiple places on the fake label.
Shortlist: Verify your label
If you’re short on time, feel free to use this authenticity checklist:
Check whether the label is attached to your item or not. If you observe an item with an unattached label that comes alongside it, it is likely a fake item, as well as a fake Stadium Goods (SG) tag.
Front Side of the Tag:
Examine the front side of your tag to ensure there are no thickness irregularities or flaws in the rubber-text, such as scratching.
Rear Side of the Tag:
Look at the tag from the rear side. Most replica Stadium Goods tags have text that is the wrong thickness, improperly spaced between lines, and may not reflect light (for the older tag with a small holographic detail).

Do fakes go through Stadium Goods?

The short answer is yes, more often than not, they are reliable and yes, some fake go through due to human error.
