If you were hoping to upgrade your favorite NFL jersey this season, it's going to cost you a bit more.

According to ESPN, Nike has raised the prices on two of its three jersey styles, and the hikes are rather significant.

While the screen printed 'Game' jersey replica will still cost $100, the 'Limited' jersey that features twill numbers and lettering in place of the screen print will jump from $135 to $150.

As if that wasn't enough, the 'Elite' jersey, which is near the level of a game-issued jersey, will rise almost 20 percent, from $250 to $295.

The NFL has nothing to do with the jersey price hike as ESPN reports the decision comes from both Nike and retailers. It went on to suggest the increase in price came directly from Nike this go around.

But sources told that it was Nike executives alone who made the decision, implementing the new prices as the minimum prices retailers could sell the different style of jerseys for.
