Federal agents in New Orleans seized fake sports merchandise and other counterfeit consumer products from city vendors.

Working with the NFL and other professional sports leagues, authorities say more than 1,400 counterfeit hats, T-shirts and jerseys worth approximately $210,000 have been seized.

Agents also seized 477 counterfeit Duracell batteries and counterfeit NASCAR and John Deere merchandise.

Although most of the seized items were purporting to be NFL merchandise, also seized were counterfeit items with the trademarks of Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association.
