Defunkd’s exclusive collection of vintage t-shirts for sale at reasonably exorbitant prices.

Item #7: Bob Marley and the Wailers Island Records Promo

Album: Exodus

Year: 1977

Circulation: In this condition?! Next to nil.

Wow, this is the rarest shirt we’ve ever had our hands on. It’s an Island records promo for the legendary 1977 release of what Time Magazine called, “The greatest album of the century.” To up the ante, this is not a typical t-shirt – it’s a unique canvas poncho style piece with a wide neck and longer arms. It’s meant to be loose fitting but in the event you’re crazy enough to wear this instead of framing it, note that if the measurements below typically suit you, this will not. The fabric has no give so it’s best to consider this a size small.

Brand: None

Measurements: 20″ (pit-to-pit) 27″ (rear collar-bottom seam)

Condition: This item is in near mint vintage condition.

Variables: Extremely faint marks from storage.

Available for purchase here.

    Amazing score! Not just for the rarity of it, but it’s a cool looking shirt too.
