LIBERTY, Mo. -- If you're looking to buy Royals merchandise-- buyer beware.

There are a lot of online retailers selling knock off gear and Donna Benson of Liberty, Mo., says it happened to her.

Benson says she purchased a Moustakas jersey for her daughter for $79, but when it arrived it was the wrong size, and she says they charged her $40 dollars more than she bargained for.

Benson says she's stuck with the jersey because the China-based company doesn't accept exchanges on international purchases.

“I Googled it, and they sent me to this KC website,” Benson says. “It said the official online store for the Kansas City Royals.”

Toby Cook with the Kansas City Royals urges fans to purchase Royals merchandise from the team’s store at Kauffman Stadium or from a reputable retailer you trust.

Reputable retailers where MLB licensed Royals gear is sold:

  • Team Store at Kauffman Stadium
  • Kansas Sampler
  • Rally House
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods
  • Academy Sports
  • Wal-Mart
  • Target
