“Soccer fans will truly own a piece of history stated Paul Serbiak Global’ s CEO. In other words, authenticated fanwear that contains the fibers of a previously worn jersey from their favorite player.  

This is truly a brand extension that bonds fans with their favorite celebrities like never before.  The patented technology and manufacturing process we use exemplifies the attributes of provenance and authentication or “Made From The Original” “MFO” our moniker going forward.

The markets  are ridden with counterfeiting and nefarious activities that are just accepted to be part of the norm.  Our process removes any doubt as to whether or not something you buy from Authentic Heroes is truly authentic and made from the original article of clothing worn by a sports or music celebrity.

So, every time there is a scandal, our proposition and credibility gets a whole lot stronger.
