when buying at WSS you have two options when it comes to lettering: basic and authentic,... the basic will be just plain plastic, and the authentic will be felt material
you need to make sure that you choose authentic and not basic when you are gonna make the purchase (if the authentic option is available)
I did select the authentic option.
Invoice even stated:
useAuthenticLetters = Yes (+$2.49)
useAuthenticNumber = Yes (+$1.99)
Any one else order and get plastic for authentic?
yes, they aren't using the felt material anymore as sporting id has just released a new material which is called ps-pro(it's basically high quality plastic lol). worldsoccershop is legitimate, don't worry.
