Hope you guys can help with my rather newb observation. I saw these old style Football shirt T-shirts on ebay. There's quite afew examples but i've included two bellow;

GERMANY /DEUTSCHLAND RETRO STYLE SHIRT / JERSEY on eBay (end time 15-Jul-10 22:34:58 BST)

Retro Nottingham Forest 60-70s Style Football T Shirt on eBay (end time 17-Jul-10 20:57:16 BST)

The emblems/badges are all embroidered for these shirts. Do you guys think the sellers created these themselves, or had these manufactured elsewhere?

The reason I ask is that to produce bespoke embroided badges/patches/emblems for a small quantity (< 10) would be quite expensive -IMO.

Juist wondering how they'd make much of a profit after buying in the T-shirts, and buying in the badges?

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Bit hard to really tell in the images.
To me it looks like they are embroidered directly onto garment.

Have the design digitized for $12 - $25 ea
probably had 10 per size made up, keep cost down a little.
if so, that would mean about 60-70 shirts per design.
so cost of shirt (ringer tee by the look) plus 20c-40c per shirt to cover digitizing plus $3 - $5 per shirt for embroidery (depending on design).
selling at £8 - £13 (USD$12 -$20)per shirt

...doesn't seem to have much of a margin

33% margin - 50% markup - not that bad if they got the shirts cheap enough.
but they probably don't have a lot of overheads either.
