the immediate issue is how different the tags look, and the lettering on 'RBK'

I'd say at least one is not authentic, but not sure which without more pictures.

Some things to look for are if the numbers appear 'bubbly' or 'shiny' then it is fake. Another is to look at the Reebok logos, and if you can see a thread connecting the different segments of the icon it is probably fake. The real Reebok jerseys have logos in which you cannot see these threads.

They're most likely fakes but the fakes now are so good its pretty difficult to tell the difference. Obviously authentics cost around 375 new, getting them at 40 a pop should be your sign. They look good, who cares. :)

If you post up some pictures of the logos, inside collar tags, numbers, letters, and the tag on the bottom outside of the jersey when you get them I can point out more things to look for.
