This design of Artex tags did appear in the 90s. I have a 1996 Patriots tee with a similar tag here https://www.etsy.com/listing/523250896/ ... c-champs-t and I have seen it on other 90s tees as well. Usually sports themed ones. I think yours may be a tiny bit earlier than my 1996 one because it doesn't have the fabric specified on the front. What's the fabric makeup on the back say?

Ok, yeah. If it was a 50/50 poly/cotton blend, I was gonna say it could be even earlier 90s because Artex Sportswear was first used in 1992, but my guestimation for yours would be mid 90s.
