hmmmmm....whats the RN #? I can't make it out. Anything other than white I always think of Tiny Pony's multi color repros. These were usually on white shirts...but I can't say for sure if it was only white. Anyone?

Compare the subscript area to a real one:

Sometimes the fine print can be a good indicator, most times counterfeiters will just re-type the tiny text in their graphic programs rather than tracing it - because it's too small to pick up and properly reproduce. As a result, the font attributes aren't identical and sometimes little details don't match -

1. the print is off...but that can happen with any shirt.

2. the ©'s are different.

3. looks like the fonts are different - yours is thicker and the spacing in between letters and words is more cramped. Compare the spaces between Live + Aid ...there's an obvious difference.

4. for a shirt that looks very crisp/new...the red and orange are off.
