Football jerseys are a great gift for any football fan. One thing to understand is that the player you choose will only have a shelf-life of so many years with that team.
You can either buy the current jersey of your football fan's favorite player, which could run you $80-$120, or you could look for places that sell replica jerseys for much less.
Typically at the start of training camp, you can walk into the team store of any NFL team and find a large selection of jerseys on sale, for the players that are no longer with the team, or for players that have switched uniform numbers. I purchased several this year when I attended the Buffalo Bills training camp, and they were only $10.00 apiece.
Teams also change their jerseys, either by design or color, making the old ones obsolete. If your football fan demands to wear the current jersey to every game, they will wind up with a large uniform collection. The point is that you can spend a little or much more, but ask enough questions so you know which player jerseys to avoid.
