U.S. Customs and Chinese knockoffs

I'll be entering the U.S. after spending 2 months in China. In my luggage I'll have 3 fake watches, 3 fake Polo shirts, a pair of fake shoes, and a fake North Face backpack. Will U.S. Customs find out, and if they do, what would they do?

I'm an 18-year-old U.S. citizen who's entering alone with 3 checked bags (yeah, a lot). I also have some real Polo shirts that I don't want taken away if they confiscate the fake ones.
Another thing: My North Face backpack is a big hiker-style pack with the North Face logo prominently featured on the front. If I completely rip off the logo (by dethreading it), that'll solve my problems in regard to the backpack, right?
So: any personal experiences or insight about what I'll face at the customs checkpoint?
